Xiaomi MI 8 family isn’t of the past, and is for those who want fancy to go with functionality. The family ranges from the likes of the Mi 8 SE to the more premium Mi 8 Explorer edition. While the fanciness of these phones is not doubt above all horizons, the amount of money you’ll have to be spending to acquire these are above all horizons as well. So what about it then? Well, a new phone from Xiaomi has most recently appeared on China’s TENAA website, and this device just might end up being the one for you!

The TENAA listing doesn’t provide us with any photos as of yet, however, the model number does give us a clue, because it lines up with the very recent ‘Mi 8X reports’. Also, there have been reports about a ‘Mi 8 Youth Edition’, however, taking into consideration both the scenarios, the new phone which is rumored to be on its way seems to be a Mi 8 variant.

So how about it? What is expected of the phone? Well, not much is revealed till now, however, there’s an unnamed 2.2 GHz processor we’ve been hearing about, which can probably reach the speeds that we would get from the Snapdragon 670, or the Snapdragon 710. On the other hand, it is expected that the phone will come in two variants, with the choice at hand being between a 4GB variant and an 8GB variant. We’ll probably have the option of 32GB to 128GB of expandable storage, while a 3250mAh battery go along with the whole process.

While the processing speeds and the RAM might have impressed you, the camera setup would enhance your interest even further. There are rumors that there will be a dual camera setup, with an at least one 12MP shooter, a 24MP selfie snapper. While the camera seems to be quite great, the display by the looks of it wouldn’t be far off. It seems the unknown phone will have a 6.26-inch full HD+ TFT screen. One flaw which you might dislike to a great extent is that there are strong rumors that much like the Mi 8 series, the upcoming phone will not have a headphone jack.

Based on the specs and other rumors, you’d want to be excited about the upcoming phone. As I stated earlier, this particular phone will be a rather budget phone, not hurting you wallet much, however, not sacrificing on the specs much either.
