Xiaomi launched its flagship Mi 8 lineup earlier in the year, with a trio of devices—the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, and Mi 8 Explorer being unveiled. The company is set to add a number of devices to that exotic lineup soon, if reports are to be believed.

According to word on the grapevine, the company will release a Mi 8 Youth Edition soon. The device was teased on a physical poster in China a few days ago, and has now apparently been confirmed for launch. It’s said to sport a 6.2-inch FHD+ LCD display, a Snapdragon 710, a 12 MP + 5 MP dual rear camera setup, a 24 MP selfie camera, and a 3400 mAh battery. It’s also said to come with a CNY 1,999 price tag, equivalent to about US$295.

What makes the existence of this device a tad hard to explain is the fact that its positioned so similarly to the Mi 8 SE. The SE shares an identical specifications sheet, albeit with some differences including an AMOLED display, smaller selfie camera, and a smaller battery. The Mi 8 SE is also about US$15 cheaper at the moment. 

The second device to be launched soon is the Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint, a flagship that appears to be identical to the Mi 8, albeit with an in-display fingerprint reader, just like on the Mi 8 Explorer Edition.

Speaking of the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Xiaomi is said to be set to sell that device as the Mi 8 Pro outside China.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
