Xiaomi first launched the Blasoul Y720 gaming mouse in December last year with an attractive design including a changing light colour effect. The company has now launched a new lite version of the same mouse with a cheaper price tag. The Blasoul Y720 Lite, as it is called, comes with slightly trimmed down feature but the quality is consistent with that of all known Xiaomi products.
The new gaming mouse comes in at just 349 yuan ($52) as compared to the 499 yuan ($74) price tag which the Y20 is offered. The main highlight is the panoramic lightning effect which comes when the mouse is in use. The major difference is that the DPI is reduced from 12,000 to 7200 on this new gaming mouse. In addition, the new mouse has a more rounded shape and is designed based on the right-hand ergonomics. It comes with seven buttons, a side design that prevents the hands from slipping away from the mouse easily even when the hand is sweaty. Thus, it is suitable for use during long gaming session or competition.
In terms of the build quality, the mouse is crafted using TPR+ABS injection moulding process, while the surface uses a proprietary BabyFace coating giving it a skin-like feel and making it stain-resistant. Stains can be removed easily with a gentle wiping of the surface. I addition, the gaming mouse is equipped with a micro-motion 2000W click life, PMW3360 optical engine, 48MHz 32bit master chip, preset 5 files DPI fast switching.
However, the most distinctive feature is its panoramic light effect design. The entire mouse has up to five 16.8 million color RGB lighting areas, achieving 360° bright lights with no dead ends. As stated earlier, it is priced at 349 yuan and is available presently in China via Xiaomi Youpin.
