The camera of the Mi 10 Youth 5G gained an all new 8MP telephoto camera with a periscope lens that allows up to 5x optical zoom and 50x hybrid zoom. There is also OIS, but Xiaomi is withholding details on the aperture.

Videos are done in 4K @ 30 fps, but the software will also offer slow-mo videos in 720p at 960 fps.
There 16MP camera on the front is tucked in a waterdrop notch.
The battery is 4,160 mAh and comes with 22.5W fast-charging support over PD. Xiaomi hasn’t officially confirmed whether it is including a matching fast-charging power brick in the retail box, though.
