Xiaomi Mi Eight Youth Teaser Picture Confirms China Launch, Mi Eight Explorer Appears Set for World Launch

Chinese phone maker Xiaomi on Monday teased the launch of yet another smartphone in the Chinese city of Chengdu; however, the exact launch date has not yet been revealed. The teaser shows the render of a smartphone that looks like the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition that leaked on Chinese certification portal TENAA last week. As per the renders, the smartphone is expected to sport a horizontally stacked dual rear camera setup at the back. The renders do not reveal whether there is a display notch on the Mi 8 Youth's front.

The teaser image was posted on the company's official Weibo account. It shows a panda trying to jump a well, considering Chengdu is the home of the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base. A smartphone is kept at the bottom in a pot, suggesting that the alleged Mi 8 Youth is coming to China in the next few days or weeks.

The phone is also expected to sport the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC under the hood.

Separately, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition has reportedly been spotted on a Singaporean certification portal.
