The Mi 8 series already has three members – the Snapdragon 710-powered Mi 8 SE and the Snapdragon 845-powered Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition. New reports have revealed Xiaomi may be adding two more members. According to Mysmartprice, the two new Mi 8 variants are the Mi 8 Youth and the Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition. Think of the latter as a sort of Mi 8 UD.
Apart from the names of the two new models, the color variants and memory configuration for both phones have also surfaced. The Mi 8 Youth will come in three variants and three memory configurations while the Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition will have two color variants and two memory configurations.
The Mi 8 Youth Edition will launch in 4GB + 64GB, 6GB + 64GB, and 6GB + 128GB variants. Available color variants are Space Gray, Gold, and Blue. The Mi 8 with an in-display fingerprint sensor will be available in 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 128GB while available color variants are listed as black and gold.
Chinese leaker @Ice Universe believes the Mi 8 Youth Edition may be the ¥1999 (~$292/€252) phone scheduled to launch in mid-September. However, the rumored processor is more of upper mid-range (Snapdragon 670/Snapdragon 710) than high-end.
