Last week, Xiaomi launched the Mi 10 Youth Edition alongside the latest and greatest MIUI 12. And now, Xiaomi is back with a new device, the Mi Note 10 Lite. As the name suggests, the new device is a toned-down version of the Mi Note 10 Pro which was also launched in November 2019. In this article, we will discuss in detail about the device’s specifications and expected price in Nepal.
The Mi Note 10 Lite doesn’t only share a similar name to its pro variant. Both of the devices share a very similar design and build. Both the devices have the same 6.47 inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080×2340, which is FHD+. The screen has HDR 10 support as well as Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The screen also has a waterdrop notch which is home to the 16MP selfie shooter. The Mi Note 10 Lite has a glass sandwich design with an aluminum frame going around it.
The device is powered by the SnapDragon 730G SoC along with the Adreno 618 GPU. It will also come in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants with 64GB and 128GB storage options respectively. There is no option for storage expansion. All this is powered by a humongous 5260 mAh battery which has 30W fast charging support. The phone runs on MIUI 11 on top of Android 10.
On the rear camera side of things, the phone has a quad-camera set up. The primary sensor is a 64 megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor. Accompanying the primary sensors are the 8MP Ultrawide, 2MP Macro, and 5MP depth sensor. The rear camera can shoot up to 4K video at 30fps. The cameras are also capable of shooting super-slow motion at 960fps at 720p HD resolution.
The device is available in Midnight Black, Glacier White, and Nebula Purple color variants at launch. Other notable features of the device include Bluetooth 5.0 support, an under-display fingerprint sensor, NFC support, and the inclusion of an IR blaster. The Mi Note 10 Lite also has a 3.5mm headphone jack. It also has a USB Type-C port.
The Mi Note 10 Lite, as aforementioned, is available in 4 variants; i.e. 6GB+64GB, 6GB+128GB, 8GB+64GB and 8GB+128GB. Xiaomi has not yet announced the prices for the 8GB variants. That being said, the price at launch for the 6GB+64GB base variant is €349. Similarly, the price for the 6GB+128GB variant is €399. The devices are to be available globally starting mid-May.
As for the launch of the device in Nepal, there is no clear indication on this topic. Xiaomi has always been a little late in bringing new devices to Nepal. Adding on top of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot surely say when or if these devices will launch in Nepal.
Looking at the international price and the trend of Xiaomi in Nepal, we can expect the starting price of the Mi Note 10 Lite to be in the neighborhood of Rs. 55,000.
|S.N.||Variants||International Price||Converted to NPR||Expected Price in Nepal|
|1.||6GB + 64GB||€349||~Rs. 52,000||Rs. 55,000|
|2.||6GB + 128GB||€399||~Rs. 55,000||Rs. 58,000|
|3.||8GB + 64GB||Not Revealed||N/A||N/A|
|4.||8GB + 128GB||Not Revealed||N/A||N/A|
If the Mi Note 10 Lite is priced competitively, the device will be a great option for people who are looking to upgrade from their mid-range phones without putting a huge load on their pockets.
Both the offerings from Oppo and Xiaomi fall under the same price bracket and appeal to the same masses. If you are confused about whether to buy the Oppo Reno 3 or the Mi Note 10 lite, here is our comparison of the two devices:
