Check out the specs of Xiaomi's new phones here

 

MANILA, Philippines – Local product launches are undergoing “new normal” changes as well. 

Xiaomi on Tuesday, May 26, launched its first batch of new products in the Philippines for the second half of 2020, headlined by the Mi Note 10 Lite.

If the name sounds familiar, that’s because Samsung also had its own Note 10 Lite launched back in February. Xiaomi’s phone though will be the cheapest bearing the name, officially priced at P16,990, compared to Samsung’s P29,990 Note 10 Lite.

Xiaomi has been known for offering appealing features at an affordable price. The Mi Note 10 is looking like it won’t fail the brand’s reputation. At the price, stand-out features include the premium-looking aesthetics with its curved AMOLED display, the front and back glass build, and the in-screen fingerprint sensor.

Combined with a Snapdragon 730G chipset, a quad-camera setup, and a 5,260 mAh battery, the Mi Note 10 Lite offers something compelling in its price range – although the competition this year may make it less clear-cut as to who can put out the cheapest, most attractive package, inside and out. 

Here are the specs: 

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB storage
  • Rear quad camera: 64MP main + 8MP ultra-wide + 5MP depth sensor + 2MP macro
  • 16MP front camera
  • 6.47-inch full HD curved AMOLED display
  • In-screen fingerprint unlocking

The phone will be available starting June 4, 2020.
