Earlier today, a Xiaomi device dubbed M1808D2TE appeared on TENAA. Just before we could speculate that the listed specs point to the rumored Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition, another leak of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition specs appeared on Weibo. These appearances are consistent with a few discrepancies. Officially, Xiaomi has confirmed that it will soon launch a flagship device for 1999 Yuan ($293). Subsequently, reports indicated that the company is working on two smartphones in the Mi 8 series – Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition and Xiaomi Mi 8 on-screen fingerprint version. Filling the gap, we have speculated that the 1999 Yuan ($293) flagship is most likely the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition. Now, we have more details about this upcoming smartphone.
From the Weibo leak, it appears that this name of this smartphone is Xiaomi Mi 8X and 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.

According to the leak, the lights of this device will be kept on by a modest 3,350 mAh battery but the TENAA listing places the battery as a 3250 mAh battery. As of now, there is no information on the operating system. Just yesterday, Xiaomi released the MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie beta for the Xiaomi Mi 8. This software might just be too young for the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition thus MIUI 9 based on Android Oreo is most probable. The colour options on the TENAA listing include black, rose gold, gold, white, blue, red, pink, gray, silver, green, gradient, blue-violet gradient, and purple gold gradient.
