31 May during the conference Xiaomi presented its latest flagship Mi 8. Three models were available, Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer Edition. The most powerful Explorer Edition model went on sale a dozen or so days ago, unfortunately, the possibility of obtaining it is still minimal due to demand. Meanwhile, Xiaomi is preparing to present two further variants from the Mi 8 series. According to rumors, the Chinese giant will present Mi 8 Youth Edition and Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition.
Two new models of the Xiaomi Mi 8 flagship are expected to sell
The information leaked by the Youth model will have 4 or 6 GB RAM and 64 or 128 GB internal memory. It will be available in three color options: Space gray, Gold and Blue. There is no information about the processor, but I would not count on Snapdragon 845, or bet on Snapdragon 710, if it is going to be a budget edition of Mi 8. Only what is the point? If such a model already exists and has the name Mi 8 SE? It only knows Xiaomi.
Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition
Just as the name suggests this variant is to be equipped with a fingerprint reader built into the display. As it has the top Mi 8 Explorer Edition. There is no information about the processor, I suppose it will remain the same as in the normal version of Mi 8. It will be available in two configurations: 6 GB RAM + 128 GB ROM and 8 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM. What colours? According to leaks, black and gold.
Is this information and rumors true? It will turn out in the coming weeks. In my opinion, Xiaomi has too many smartphone models on offer and I'm getting lost, let alone Kowalski. Five Mi 8 variants are, in my opinion, a definite exaggeration.
Probable release date of the new 18 / 19 models from September.
