Today Xiaomi Nepal had an online event where they launched two of their new products for the Nepali Market. They launched their flagship Mi10 5G and also a premium mid-range Mi Note 10 lite. Mi Note 10 lite competes with the upper mid ranges of Samsung under the 50K segment. Xiaomi Nepal has a strong fanbase in Nepal as they deliver high-performance devices at a competitive price. Now let’s see how the Mi Note 10 lite gets treated in the Nepali market.
Design & Display
For a mid-range device Mi Note 10 lite comes with a premium design. It has glass on both the front and back where the display curves along the edges. At the back, we also get to see a quad-camera setup along with Xiaomi branding. While at the front, Mi Note 10 lite comes with a 6.47-inch FHD+ Amoled Display with ~87.8% screen to body ratio and a U shaped notch at the top. The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Mi Note 10 lite’s display also comes with HDR10 compatibility and supports max brightness up to 430 nits. Though the display doesn’t support fancy higher refresh rate features.
Power & Performance
Mi Note 10 Lite is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, which is one of the latest offerings from Qualcomm for mid-range devices. It is an Octa-core CPU based on 8nm technology which makes it powerful and battery efficient at the same time. Here GPU duties are handled by Adreno 618. In Nepal device comes with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
Despite being lite in its name, the device comes with a mammoth 5260mAh battery with a 30W fast charging support which can charge the device from 0-100% in less than 65 minutes. This large battery coupled with an 8nm SoC could give some serious battery life. Despite a glass back device, it does not support wireless charging, which is quite obvious at this price point.
Mi Note 10 lite could give tough competition to its rivals even in this department too. It packs a quad-camera setup at the back with 64MP f/1.9 Sony IMX 686 sensor as the Main shooter along with an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide lens. While the other two are 2MP macro lens for closeup shots up to 2cm and a 5MP depth sensor for portrait photos and videos.
Alongside a quad-camera setup, it also has a quad led flash at the back. The 64MP main camera supports video recording up to 4K at 30fps and also 720p slow motion at 960fps. At the front of the device, we get a 16MP Shooter inside a U shaped notch. It supports HDR selfies and video recording up to 1080p at 30fps.
Mi Note 10 lite comes with MIUI 11 on top of Android 10. It’s going to be one of the first devices to get MIUI 12 update. It also has an IR blaster for remote control at the top. The device is covered with P2I coating for splash protection. That 6.47-inch amoled display also has an under-display Fingerprint Sensor. We even get a 3.5mm headphone jack.
