This morning, we reported that the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition appeared on TENAA as well as on a leak on Weibo. These two appearances revealed much of its specifications but not its price. However, we have initially connected some dots to speculate that the Mi 8 Youth Edition will be sold for 1999 Yuan ($293). Now, a new offline poster seems to support our initial claim. Xiaomi is expected to hold a huge product launch in mid-September. This offline reservation information further strengthens the credibility of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition. The offline poster is hand-written and it shows that the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition will sell for 1999 Yuan ($293).

At this price tag, it is now most likely that this smartphone will be powered by the recently released Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC further popularizing this chip. The likes of Smartisan Nut Pro 2S, Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, 360 N7 Pro, and others use SD710 and they are all in the same price range. However, we have seen super cheap SD845 devices like the Meizu 16 and Xiaomi Pocophoone F1 thus we cannot rule out the possibility of the chip coming out from nowhere to take the driving seat of this device. Presently, a new Xiaomi device dubbed M1808D2TE/T/C has obtained radio transmission model approval and 3C certification. It is produced by Fuzhikang Precision Electronics (Langfang) Co., Ltd., and this could as well be the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition.
According to a recent leak on Weibo and its TENAA appearance, it appears that this name of this smartphone is Xiaomi Mi 8X. It comes with a 6.26-inch notched screen with a display resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9 ratio. As earlier speculated, this smartphone will be powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. In the camera department, we have a dual rear 12MP primary snapper with an unspecified secondary shooter. Up front, its got a massive 24MP camera for selfies. The battery will be 3350 mAh or 3250 mAh but there is no information on the operating system.
