Chinese mobile phone major Xiaomi is reportedly working on one more variant of the Xiaomi Mi 8 series phones, the Mi 8 Youth. This is possibly the fourth variant after Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Mi 8 SE.
As per reports, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth, which is what it is expected to be called, is still a smartphone that is work in progress and the Youth suggestion comes from some of the features like the 24MP selfie camera while the earlier versions have a 20MP camera and the music feature is also being stressed.
The rumoured specifications of the new phone comprise a 6.26-inch full HD+ display and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The renders indicate a notch on the display, as with most smartphones today. The screen resolution is 1080x2280pixels. A solid Qualcomm Snapdragon 710Soc processor and 6GB RAM provide a good report on the specifications of the phone. The internal storage will be 64GB.
The rear camera has a setup of 2 sensors, one of which is 12MP and the other could be 2 or 5MP. The front camera, as mentioned above, will be 24MP.
According to the Chinese site Weibo, which publishes such advance details about phones yet to be launched, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth will come with a 3350mAh battery which will receive support from a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. The provision of a more powerful battery on this phone is also being cited as an example of positioning this model for the youth since they prefer to listen to music and watch videos for longer periods.
According to the listing of the smartphone on TENAA, the Mi 8 Youth is likely to have dimensions of 156.4mmx75.8mmx7.5mm and the colours in which the phone will be made are Black, Rose Gold, White, Blue, Red, Pink, Gray, Silver, and Green.
