Software support ends for Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom

launched the Mi 10 Lite Zoom in China in late April. The smartphone officially went by Mi 10 Youth in its home country. It never made its way to global markets.

As the name suggests, the main highlight of this device was its zoom camera. It was one of the few mid-rangers with a zoom camera. It features an 8MP 5x telephoto camera.

Exactly three years after its release, the company has now dropped software support for this phone.

For the unaware, Xiaomi maintains an EOS (End of Support) list on its official website. The 3-year-old Mi 10 Lite Zoom was recently added to the list confirming the end of its official software updates from the brand.

The handset debuted with MIUI 11 based on 10. Currently, it boots MIUI 13 based on Android 12. Its last software update was rolled out in November 2022.

We were hoping that Xiaomi would release MIUI 14 update for this smartphone without an Android upgrade. But unfortunately, that won't be happening.

Though this exact device was not launched outside mainland China, Xiaomi did release a tweaked variant without the zoom camera in May 2020. That phone simply went by Mi 10 Lite 5G. It should also get added to the EOS list as soon as next month.

On the other hand, the original two Mi 10 series models, namely Mi 10 5G and Mi 10 Pro 5G have started receiving MIUI 14 based on Android 13 as their final major software update.
