Xiaomi is very aggressive when it comes to product launches and almost every month we see something new from this Chinese company. Now Xiaomi has confirmed yet another event in China, to be held in the famous city of Chengdu. In case you don’t know, this city is famous for its giant pandas, thanks to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base where tourist can get access and interact with these cute creatures.

The company released a new poster an hour ago via its weibo handle to confirm the event at Chengdu but failed to give out any specific details. However, the teaser poster kind of confirms that the event is for the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition. If you look closely at the picture, there’s a smartphone in the pot down below. We can see that the phone has dual cameras arranged horizontally, which is identical to the design of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth edition that we saw in TENAA images a couple of days back.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth edition is said to come with a 6.26-inch 2280 x 1080 pixel resolution display and Snapdragon 710 chipset inside. There should be 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage along with a 3350mAh battery on board. As for the cameras, there should be a 12+5MP sensor at the back and a large 24MP sensor up front for selfies.

 

 

These specs are very similar to the Mi 8 SE. So, it would be interesting to see how Xiaomi places this new model alongside the existing Mi 8 SE with SD710 onboard.

Expect more details in the coming days.
