Well, it looks like the two are indeed pretty similar. The only main difference here is the inclusion of an 8-megapixel periscope telephoto lens on the Mi 10 Youth. This is a camera feature we saw on high-end devices like the Huawei P40 Pro and the OPPO Find X2 Pro, making it the first midrange to have it.

This lens provides 5x of optical zoom and 50x of digital magnification. It’s also equipped with optical image stabilization so you can frame images easily while you’re zoomed all the way in.

Other than that, the rest of the specs of these Xiaomi phones are the same. They both share the same 48-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens.

On the front, we have the 16-megapixel selfie camera sitting in a waterdrop notch, instead of a more appealing punch-hole cutout. That’s on top of a 6.57-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen, with HDR10 support and a 180Hz sampling rate for improved responsiveness.

Under the hood, they are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, which also enables their 5G connectivity feature.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth and Mi 10 Lite also has the same 4,160mAh battery, although the former has a slightly faster 22.5W charging support.

They will ship with Android 10-based MIUI 11 OS, but they should be updated to the new MIUI 12 soon. You can check the MIUI 12 update schedule for more details.

So, which between the two should you get? Well, the choice might not be yours to make. We expect only one of the two will reach each market to avoid redundancy. However, that shouldn’t matter unless having extreme zooming capabilities really matter to you. Either way, you’re going to get value for your money.
