Mi 8 has another variant, a leak suggests


A sudden leak from China has emerged around the internet. This new leak suggests that Xiaomi Mi 8 will have a fourth variant. This latest variant will sport a different CPU underneath.

The leak came from China, where a Weibo user uploaded the images for the same device. This new device looks quite similar to the Mi 8 Explorer Edition device. The series includes the original device, Mi 8SE, and the Explorer Edition. The device, according to the uploader is Mi 8X.

However, there is a small change underneath. Instead of Snapdragon 845, the device will come with Snapdragon 710 onboard. Also, the device will come with the in-display fingerprint scanner.

However, none of the Mi 8 series, other than the Explorer Edtion, include the in-display fingerprint scanner, suggesting that the device will be on more premium side.

We cannot tell about the price since it is just a leak. And regarding the launch and availability, since it is a leak, we don’t know either.
