Xiaomi scored big in the just concluded 11-11 Singles Sales, recording a total of 5.75 billion Yuan in sales. Just a few hours after that announcement, the manufacturer has released a new poster for a phone launching tomorrow.
The poster shows a train and has some text which when translated includes the words “Youth” and “Tomorrow”. It doesn’t say much but comments on the Weibo post hint at a new phone targeted at the younger generation.
Some say it is a new variant (color/RAM + storage) of the Mi 8 Lite while others think it may be a Lite version of the Mi MIX 3, probably a Snapdragon 710-powered version that can take on the Lenovo Z5 Pro.
The Mi 8 Lite was well received and according to Xiaomi, it was one of the best selling phones on Tmall during the 11-11 sales promotion and was awarded the best-selling phone in the ¥1000 to ¥2000 category.
