Yesterday, Xiaomi released a preheating poster which suggests that the company will unveil a youth version of a smartphone today. Now, it turns out that it is not a “new” youth version but a variant of a pre-existing youth version. Yesterday, the company announced that the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite 4GB+128GB version will be available on Xiaomi Mall from November 16 but it did not state the price. Now, it has been confirmed that this smartphone will sell for 1799 Yuan ($259). Until now, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite has three variants, 4GB+64GB, 6GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB. The official price of these versions is 1399 Yuan ($204), 1699 Yuan ($248) and 1999 Yuan ($292) respectively.
Many phone users believe that 4GB of RAM is just enough for a smartphone. However, the internal memory cannot be too much. This will be a good device for those who needs a low-cost phone with high storage. On September 19, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite (or Mi 8 Youth Edition) was officially released. The design is inspired by the Matster of Impressionism Claude Monet, and the mirror gradient rear uses the top-notch vacuum nano-sputtering process as the flagship smartphone, Huawei P20.
The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite is packed with a 6.26-inch full-screen, a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, 3350mAh battery supporting QC3.0 fast charging, and a 12MP rear camera (1.4μm pixel size, dual-core focus, f/1.9 aperture), which is accompanied by a 5MP secondary sensor. The latter is identical to the original Mi 8. It has a 12-to-0 advantage for the Huawei P20 in the AI scene recognition. Of course, this handset supports Xiao AI voice assistant but this is only relevant for Chinese speakers.
This smartphone features a high face value and self-timer. This is also the first smartphone of Xiaomi coming with a gradient back panel. In comparison to the newly announced Apple iPhone XR, which has a 35.2mm bangs area, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition’s notch part is 19.4mm, while the frame is narrower, only 1.95mm, and the body is slimmer, 7.5mm.
