The Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite is the budget-friendly model in the T-series, even so it maintains some of the best features. This includes the 6.67” LCD with adaptive refresh rate – it goes up to 120Hz (the other two do 144Hz, but it's not a huge difference) and has multiple intermediate steps down to 30Hz.
The HDR10-certified display has 1080p+ resolution (20:9) and promises 84% NTSC color coverage and 450 nits of brightness. The phone is also armed with dual speakers and a Hi-Res Audio certification.
Like the Mi 10T, the Lite has a 64MP main camera on the back, based on a 1/1.7” sensor (1.6µm pixels after 4-in-1 binning). The ultrawide camera (120°) gets an 8MP sensor, then there are the 2MP macro cam and 2MP depth sensor.
The 16MP selfie camera is inside a punch hole in the Gorilla Glass 5-protected display. There’s GG5 on the back too as well as a fingerprint reader on the side, but unlike its T-series friends there’s no mention of an aluminum alloy frame.
The Mi 10T Lite is the first phone to be powered by the new Snapdragon 750G chipset. This 8nm chip features a built-in 5G modem (the X52 seen in the S765). It offers sub-6 connectivity along with a slight performance boost over the S730G (+20% CPU performance, +10% GPU).
The Lite model gets the same 33W fast charger as the two more premium 10T models and nearly the same battery capacity, 4,820 mAh. This one even outdoes the more premium siblings by having a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite will be available in two configurations: 6/64GB for €280 and 6/128 GB for €330. Xiaomi made a big deal of what it called "honest prices" and for its fans it will offer an early bird deal - the 6/64GB configuration will be available on Amazon and Mi.com on October 13 at a price of €250.
