And now is back with a new year’s present by launching the budget variant Mi 10T-Lite. The speculations were around for quite a while, and the devoted Xiaomi fans didn’t leave any chance in getting the slightest detail about the phone.
With Mi 10T-Lite, you get most of the perk of a flagship-level smart-phone without paying the hefty amount that a flagship model cost.

It can easily snatch the best budget phone tag from any other budget phone in it’s league like Poco X3. So, let’s take a deeper dive as Mi 10T-Lite has a lot more to offer.
MI 10T-Lite a complete Powerhouse
Xiaomi embedded Qualcomm®Snapdragon™ 750G as the soul and the heart of the Mi 10T lite. 750G is the successor to the 730G used in Poco X2 and Google Pixel 4A. Snapdragon 750G has an octa-core Qualcomm Kryo 570 CPU processor, with two high-performance processors clocking at 2.2 GHz and the remaining six at 1.8 GHz. It comes with 5G support.
The Snapdragon 750G practically plays in the same league in terms of speed as the Snapdragon 765G used in the Oneplus Nord and the Google Pixel 5.
The front end of the Mi 10T-Lite pleases just as much as the eye-catching back end. The 6.67 inches, 2.5D dot display IPS LCD beast comes with 120Hz of refresh rate for gaming. The side bezels are extremely thin along with fair size bottom lip. It also supports Adaptive-Sync from 30Hz to 120Hz for a more cinematic movie experience. Despite its gigantic size, visuals are kept sharp with the 2400 x 1080 pixels full HD plus resolution and with HDR10 support. The additional features like Contrast Ratio 1500:1 (typ) | Reading Mode 3.0 | Sunlight Display 3.0 | TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification are just cherries on the top.

At the rear, the quad-camera setup is symmetrically seated at the top center. Although you can feel a little camera bump the phone does not wobble around when placed on its back. The Mi 10T-Lite comes with a plastic body. This is something we can compromise on when looking at a budget phone.
At the sides, a Fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button is provided that will ensure an instant lock on/off experience along with the sim tray and volume up-down keys. At the top an IR blaster along with the microphone is present.
Dual Speaker set-up with one speaker at the top and bottom each for sure produces a better surround sound. 24-bit/192kHz audio is enough to blast your favorite music.
Headphone jack 3.5mm headphone jack is on its verge of extinction due to creative choices of companies like Apple and Samsung. Mi 10T-Lite still provides you with the old-school wired experience along with the modern wireless audio streaming capability.
Unfortunately, only one variant is being launched in Pakistan with 128 GB of internal storage- UFS 2.2 and 6 gigabytes of RAM. If you are the type of person that downloads loads of applications on your smartphone, it will take huge amount of applications and files to run out of 128 gigs of storage.
