Xiaomi is all set to join the likes of Huawei and OPPO by releasing a gradient version of its latest smartphone. The company will release the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth edition, a striped down version of the flagship Mi 8 targeted at young generation. The phone will be cheaper (~1999 Yuan which comes to ~$290) and more attractive than the flagship versions thanks to its special gradient color options. The company has already teased the two graident color options to be available at launch: Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Fantasy Blue and Twilight Gold. However, just a few minutes ago, Xiaomi‘s co-founder and president, Lin Bin shared a couple of quality renders of the two gradient versions. Check them out down below.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Gradient colors
The Mi 8 Youth Twilight Gold gradient version is an interesting color shade, starting from a pink hue at the top, slowly blending into a gold hue moving to the bottom. We have seen a lot of blue and purple gradient shades before, so this is really a refreshing color option for the new model.
The Mi 8 Youth has a Fantasy Blue gradient option as well, featuring strong shades of blue and purple unlike the subtle appearance of the Twilight Gold edition. From the render, it looks like we could see slightly different shades of blue and purple at different angles, something like that on the Honor 10 Phantom Blue edition.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Specs
We have already covered Mi 8 Youth’s specs before, but to recap, these are the expected features of the device.
The phone will feature a SD710 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (via TENAA). There should be a large 6.26-inch 2280 x 1080p display on board with a notched 19:9 aspect ratio. Other features include 3250mAh battery with QC 3.0 support, AI features, and a competitive 1999 Yuan ($~290) price tag.
