Days ago we had the first confirmation that Xiaomi was preparing two new terminals within its Mi 8 family. One of them was very similar to the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition while another was clearly inspired by the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE.
Xiaomi prepares two new Xiaomi Mi 8: one cheap and one with a fingerprint sensor on the screen
The latest leaks suggest that Xiaomi prepares two new Xiaomi Mi 8, one economical for young people and another with a fingerprint sensor on the screen.
Today we have new data of this second model, which will be known as Xiaomi MI 8 Youth.
A slightly different design
This model as we have said is inspired by the Xiaomi Mi 8 although if we see its images, filtered from the TENAA, we appreciate some differences, especially in the shape of the rear camera.
In the front part it is not much appreciated, since that whole area is glass, but it seems that the notch will be either smaller or non-existent, leaving a small frame similar to the lower one. This would be a noticeable change of Xiaomi in the high range, a mobile more similar to the Xiaomi Mi A2 than the rest of the Mi 8.
In benefits, a Mi 8 SE
As for the characteristics, it was speculated that it would be a mixture between the Mi 8 and the Mi 8 SE but now the figures suggest that it would be much more similar to insurance than the first.
The processor would be the Snapdragon 710, it would have a front camera of 24 Mpx and a double rear, with a main sensor of 12 Mpx, although it is not known how the second one will be.
There will be 32, 64 and 128 GB versions with 4, 6 and 8 GB of RAM respectively. All will use the same battery, 3250 mAh, and the same screen, of 6.26 ″ with 2280 x 1080 px resolution. This panel, with LCD technology, will be the biggest difference compared to other models.
The device is codenamed M1808D2TE and although the name Mi 8 Youth has not been official, everything points in that direction. Even a teaser of the event that will announce it has been published, with a drawing of this terminal at the bottom, although in that case without a fingerprint sensor behind it, will it be a variant with on-screen sensor and mid-range features?
