Last year, Xiaomi launched the Blazing Soul gaming peripheral brand, which focuses on developing gaming products for esports. It launched the YU Y720 gaming mouse for a price of RMB 499 (approximately Rs 5,100) in China. Now, the company has followed it up with a version of the mouse called YU Y720 Lite, which has been added to the Millet products line. While a few features have been cut down on, Blazing Soul has also reduced the price of the mouse to RMB 349 (approximately 3,600).
Xiaomi YU Y720 Lite carries a round ergonomic design, which makes it easy to hold. The gaming mouse features a 7-button setup and also has a non-slip surface that allows for long gaming sessions. Xiaomi claims the exterior of the mouse to be stain-resistant and easily cleanable through wet wipes. It’s also equipped with RGB lighting, which supports up to 16.8 million colors.
While the first YU Y720 featured a DPI of 12,000, Xiaomi has dropped the DPI to 7,200 on the YU Y720 Lite. It’s still good enough for a gaming mouse. Additionally, it also comes with 5 preset DPI modes for easy switching. The mouse is equipped with micro-motion 2000W click life, and a PMW3360 optical engine with 48MHz 32bit master chip, to deliver a smooth gaming performance.
