Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi announced its flagship Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorers Edition a few months ago in China to celebrate its anniversary. In the event, they had also announced the Mi 8 SE which is a smaller device and the first handset to feature the Snapdragon 710. All the three devices were received well in the market and the company claims that it managed to sell over 1 million units in just 18 days.

Ever since the launch of the Mi 8 SE, there were rumors that the company is working on yet another device featuring the Snapdragon 710. There were leaks about the phone featuring vertically stacked dual rear cameras with LED flash on the middle of the two sensors as seen on the iPhone X. Today, an anonymous tipster has hinted about the existence of the Mi 8 Youth and Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition.

According to the sources, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth is expected to come in three variants. The first variant will have 4 GB of RAM coupled with 64 GB of internal storage. The other two devices are 6 GB RAM variants with 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage respectively. The Mi 8 Youth will be available in Space Gray, Gold, and Blue color variants.

Coming to the Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition, as the name hints, is expected to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. It will be available in two variants – 6 GB of RAM with 128 GB internal storage and 8 GB RAM with 128 GB internal storage. If this device is priced aggressively, it could be a serious competitor to Xiaomi’s own Poco F1.

There will be Black and Gold color options to choose from. The rest of the key specifications are expected to be the same as the Mi 8. The Mi 8 features 6.21 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 2240 x 1080 pixel resolution, 18.7:9 aspect ratio, Snapdragon 845 processor, dual 12 MP rear cameras, 20 MP front camera, and 3400 mAh battery.
