Xiaomi today unveiled the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition in mainland China.
Starting from RMB 2,099, this new 5G offering is the first-ever Xiaomi device to host a periscope camera capable of 5x optical zoom and up to 50x digital zoom, while retaining a 7.88mm ultra-slim body.
The device is also powered by Xiaomi’s latest operating system – MIUI 12
In addition, the company announced the Mi Bluetooth Earphones (Line Free Edition) and the Mi Watch Color Keith Haring Edition.
Packing a lightweight design and a long-lasting battery power, the Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition is made for young consumers. It is available in five color options – Tangy Orange, Peppermint Green, Berry Blue, Peach Pink and Licorice Black.
Thanks to a "specially designed" 33% thinner AMOLED display, a 7.6% thinner custom-made periscope camera, and a 25% thinner heat pipe, the thickness of the device has been reduced by 0.1mm, achieving a 7.88mm design.

The periscope telephoto camera is capable of reaching 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom.
In addition to the periscope lens, the device sports a 48MP primary rear camera, a 120° wide angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera, providing 15 to 122mm focal length coverage. With the addition of optical image stabilization (OIS) technology on the 8MP telephoto camera, the smartphone camera system adapts to any indoor or outdoor setting.
The Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition is delivered in a boxes which include stickers for further phone case customization.
The complimentary transparent phone case and screen protector address recent concerns over smartphone cleanliness by adopting a silver ion material that has 24/7 antibacterial properties.

Xiaomi says that the MIUI 12 offers new aesthetics and privacy functions.
With Xiaomi’s MiRender engine, Folme animation engine, and MAML illustration engine, MIUI 12 promises a smooth UI experience. It also realizes efficient user interaction by visualizing every data, information, and status.
Adopting a game-level engine for real-time rendering and official NASA statistics to precisely reconstruct planetary landforms, the newly introduced MIUI 12 Super Wallpaper looks more realistic, creating visuals for your wallpaper and the always-on display.
To achieve data security, the MIUI 12 offers Flare, Barbed Wire, and Mask System functions. The Flare function marks out sensitive app activities to the user, while the Barbed Wire function allows users to take control over their own app permissions and erase sensitive information when sharing documents. When activated, the Mask System gives rogue apps blank information to protect data for five permissions including contact lists, calendar, and call records.
The MIUI 12 is certified by authoritative institutions in China, Europe and the US, and is also the first operation system in the world to receive the TÜV Rheinland “Enhanced Privacy Protection for Android Systems” certification.
The MIUI 12 also supports a series of functions including free-float multitasking windows, AI Call Assistant, Mi Health, a new control center, and Dark Mode 2.0. MIUI 12 will be supported on 40 Xiaomi devices, with the stable release to be gradually rolled out in June.
