Xiaomi launched the Mi 8 with three variants back in May this year. Now according to multiple reports, there will be another variant called Xiaomi Mi 8X. A couple of hands-on image of the device along with a list of specifications was leaked today. Another leaked image also show company’s CEO Lei Jun holding a similar smartphone of white variant.
The image from Weibo show two live images of the upcoming Mi 8X in Blue and White color variants with a glossy finish likely to be a glass back. There is dual camera setup on the rear with a LED flash in middle stacked in a vertical arrangement on the top left. The image reveals no standard fingerprint sensor on the back which leaves us with two options: a 3D face scanner or an in-display fingerprint sensor. The leak claims that the smartphone will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner like the Mi 8 Explorers Edition, as there is no fingerprint scanner to be found on the back of the phone.
As for the specifications, the Xiaomi MI 8X will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, the same one that powers the MI 8 SE. A report from four months ago claimed that Xiaomi is developing two smartphones with SD 710 which we have seen only one so far. This chipset combination with the under display fingerprint scanner hints that the Chinese electronics giant is looking bring premium features at an even affordable price than the Mi 8.
This strategy was also recently seen on another Chinese manufacturer Huawei. The company recently launched the gaming centric Honor Play smartphone, where it cut down on other specs like camera for a better chipset. Other details regarding the smartphone is very scarce but we expect it to get certified or benchmarked in the upcoming weeks.

We can expect some more memory configurations and the possibility of shipping with the latest Android 9.0 Pie. Overall, the device managed to score 876 and 4299 on single-core and multi-core tests respectively.
If rumours are to be believed, the Lenovo owned company will ditch the ZUI 4.0 interface for a pure stock Android Experience, launching as a part of Google One smartphones.

Alleged Vivo V11 Hands on Images & Specs Leaked!
We recently saw the leaked Vivo X23 hands on images and now, we have yet another similar looking smartphone leak from the Chinese giant Vivo. It is the Vivo V11 that has leaked in its full glory, revealing all its specifications and design.
Firstly, coming to the leaked images, the Vivo V11 comes with an edge to edge display with a minor chin at the bottom and a tear drop shaped notch on the top that we recently saw with the OPPO F9 and OPPO R17. Moreover, the phone comes with rounded corners and a glass back that houses a vertically stacked dual cameras and LED flash on the left.
There is no physical fingerprint scanner on the device and like the Vivo X23 and X21, the Vivo 11 too will rely on an in-display solution for unlocking the device. Looking at the top carefully, you can spot the earpiece grill located on the top bezel.
Now, talking about the specifications, the Vivo V11 will come with a 6.41-inch Super AMOLED display having a resolution of Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.

In the optics department, the phone gets a dual camera setup at the rear, featuring a 12-megapixel primary shooter along with a 5-megapixel secondary shooter. At the front, we have a 25-megapixel snapper for selfies. As of now, only the megapixel count is known.
The V11 will run on Android 8.1 Oreo, backed by a 3400mAh battery. The phone measures 157.91 x 75.0 x 7.9mm and is quite lightweight at 156g. Except for this, there is no other information regarding the device. Vivo might launch it soon, alongside the X23. Stay tuned for more updates.
Huawei Mate 20 series with Kirin 980 confirmed to Launch in October
The Chinese giant Huawei was supposed to launch three contenders in its upcoming Mate series, including the Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro and the Mate 20 Lite that was recently leaked in press renders. We might also see a Mate 20 Porsche edition with some unique features like the last year’s Mate RS Porsche edition that came with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Today, Huawei’s Consumer Business Group (CBG) CEO Richard Yu has affirmed that the Mate 20 series will be launched in October, in his press release.
The press release sent by Huawei to the African media states that the Huawei Mate 20 will be coming in October with Kirin 980 SoC built at its core, and is claimed to be the worlds first 7nm chipset in the same, which will boost performance by 20 per cent while improving battery efficiency by 40 per cent.
Furthermore, the new chipset will be touting eight CPU cores out of which four are powerful A76 cores with maximum clock speeds of 2.8GHz and four are power efficient A55 cores. The chipset seems really promising given that it scored impressive 3,50,000+points on Antutu Benchmark, as per the initial leaks.
Also, Huawei recently teased that the Mate 20 will pack a larger capacity battery than Huawei Mate 10 and P20, hinting towards a slightly larger 4,200mAh battery.
As seen in the P20 Pro, we expect either just the Pro or else both of them to sport triple cameras at the back. Moreover, the rumours hint at 8GB RAM variants too. The Mate 20 is expected to come with a 6.3-inch display with a Notch while the Mate 20 Pro may have a larger 6.9-inch Notched display, both with QuadHD+ resolution. A 3D Facial recognition based unlock system is what we look forward to.
We also have the Mate 20 Lite in the lineup which comes with dual cameras and is expected to have the Kirin 710 SoC on its board.
Evidently, Apple and Qualcomm will be soon coming with their own 7nm based chipsets manufactured by TSMC, namely Apple A12 and Snapdragon 855.
