In December last year, Xiaomi launched the first product of a new e-sports brand named Blazing Soul (aka YU). It was the YU Y720, which is a panoramic light-effect professional gaming mouse, priced at 499 yuan ($75). Today, the new version of this mouse, dubbed the YU Y720 Lite has been added to millet products line. Though the DPI has dropped from 12,000 to 7200, the price is dropped way more. It costs 349 yuan ($52).
If not informed, the Blazing Soul is a brand-new high-end e-sports peripheral brand owned by Dingju Innovation Technology Co., Ltd. (Beijing), which is jointly invested by Lenovo Group, Perfect World, Fire Cat TV and Aiwang Electronics. It’s been established, keeping one goal in mind – to make a high-end e-sports brand and to break the monopoly of foreign brands on high-end peripherals.
Compared with the Blazing Soul Y720, the YU Y720 Lite mouse shape is more rounded. It fully fits the right hand due to an ergonomic design. The 7 buttons and non-slip surface reduce the possibility of slipping caused by hand sweat. Thus, it is suitable for the long-term game process.
The YU Y720 Light also uses a TPR + ABS injection molding process, while the surface is using a proprietary BabyFace coating to provide a skin-like touch and stain-resistant feature. Wet wipes can be used to completely clean the mouse by gently rubbing.
It is equipped with a micro-motion 2000W click life, PMW3360 optical engine, 48MHz 32bit master chip, and preset 5 files DPI fast switching. However, the most distinctive feature is its panoramic light-effect design. The entire mouse has up to five 16.8 million color RGB lighting areas, achieving 360° bright lights with no dead ends.
