Xiaomi Launches Yu Y720 Lite Gaming Mouse With PMW 3360 Optical Engine


Xiaomi has expanded its offerings in the gaming line with the introduction of the Yu Y720 Lite, a gaming mouse. The gaming mouse isn’t a direct product of the Chinese tech giant as it has been launched by Blazing Soul, better known as Yu, where Xiaomi is a co-investor. Unlike most products that come from Xiaomi, which are cost effective, the gaming mouse is priced at CNY 349 (which is approximately Rs. 3,600). However, the price is understandable considering the specifications that the mouse has on offer.

Xiaomi Yu Y720 Lite: Features and Specifications

The Xiaomi Yu Y720 Lite is built with an ergonomic design for better grip and is made with a non-slip surface, which features a BabyFace coating that is also stain resistant. The body of the mouse is designed and created using TRP + ABS injection moulding technique. The high price of the mouse is mostly owing to the fact that it comes with 7200dpi sensitivity to cut any possible lags while playing. Apart from this, the device comes with panoramic lighting effect that can generate up to 16.8 million colours in the RGB spectrum. This is made from 5 different zones on the mouse and has a 360 degree illumination built-in.

The mouse also features seven different buttons that can be programmed to give a complex range of commands during gaming sessions. Other features in the mouse include micro-motion 2000 W click life, support for 5 DPI present files that is ideal for quick switching and a PMW 3360 optical engine coupled with a 32 bit master chip that can clock speeds up to 48MHz. The gaming mouse is designed to provide quick responses with good grip and multiple commands to help improve gaming experience.

In terms of looks and specifications, the mouse will certainly draw comparisons with Xiaomi’s own MI Gaming Mouse. The device, which can be purchased from Xiaomi’s e-commerce site, YouPin, is a lower end gaming mouse and doesn’t have the same specifications as the Yu Y720 Lite mouse. This is also reflected in the price as this is priced at only CNY 249 (which is approximately Rs. 2,600).
