New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…

Original story (published on May 31, 2021) follows:

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite, codenamed ‘monet’, was launched as the least expensive 5G phone in Europe. The 5G support comes courtesy of the Snapdragon 765G processor – a fairly powerful upper-midrange processor.

This has been encased in a beautiful Gorilla Glass 5 sandwich design, although the frame is still plastic.

And on the software end, the device came with Android 10-based MIUI 12, which was the latest available software at the time of its launch back in March 2020.


Since then, the device bagged the Android 11 update, which meant that the wait was on for MIUI 12.5.

The update brings along improved performance, an all new Notes app, UI tweaks, new animations, enhanced privacy, and much more.

The wait has finally come to an end as the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite has now bagged the global stable MIUI 12.5 update for which the complete official changelog and download link has been given below:

New: Response to gestures is now instant.
New: With 20 times more rendering power, there are now few limits to what you can see on your screen.
New: With custom device model adjustments, any phone becomes faster after the upgrade.
Optimization: MIUI became lighter, faster, and more durable.

New: Dynamic layouts bring the typography in Notes to a new level.
New: Compose mind maps with complex structures.
