Yesterday, Qualcomm revealed a new fast-charging solution for mid-range phones with Snapdragon 765. The solution is dubbed Quick Charge 3+ and can charge a battery from flat 0 to 50% in just 15 minutes. The press release revealed that the first smartphone to come integrated with this technology will be the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom. Interestingly enough, there’s still no smartphone with this name in Global markets. So we can easily assume that it is the global moniker of the recently released Mi 10 Youth.
Previous reports were pointing that the Mi 10 Youth would be the Chinese variant of the Mi 10 Lite released in March. However, it’s a different handset. While both devices share similar design and hardware, the 10 Youth has a telephoto lens that boosts its camera capabilities. So, it makes perfect sense for Xiaomi to release it as Mi 10 Lite Zoom, due to its natural zoom capabilities. Of course, it will come with a slight increase in the price.
