Only recently,  Xiaomi’s spokesperson, Wu Yifan, was seen flaunting a device that appears to be the Mi 8 Youth edition, and from we gleaned from the blurred image, the Mi 8 Youth edition could feature a horizontal dual rear camera, with no visible fingerprint scanner -an indication that it might use an on-screen fingerprint scanner, while it may come in a gradient design which now appears to be gaining popularity.

Expected to come stuffed with some not so advanced internals, the Mi 8 Youth edition’s major selling point is tipped to be its asking price. Rumors have it that the device will sell in China for 1999 Yuan ($293).
