Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite debut - GSMArena.com news

But, that's not the only phone Xiaomi announced. Everything else remains the same as the regular Mi 8.

The phone features the same specifications as those found on the Mi 8 Explorer edition including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and a 3,000 mAh battery. The Mi 8 Youth 6GB RAM variant is priced at 1699 Yuan and 1999 Yuan for the 64GB and 128GB storage options.

Now that the Mi 8 Pro is around to fill the gap between the standard Mi 8 and the Explorer Edition, there are some spec choices to be made as well.

On the front is the 6.26-inch notch display with Full HD+ resolution (2280×1080 pixels) resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. Key of which being the in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Mi 8 Pro will start at 3,199 yuan (~$467) for the 6GB/128GB model and 3,599 yuan (~$525) for the 8GB/128GB variant. The company is focusing on the phone's selfie credentials though, offering a 24MP front-facing shooter (IMX576), compared to the Mi 8's 20MP snapper.

Talking about the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth aka Mi 8 Lite, it is scheduled for launch today at an event in Chengdu.

After waiting for so long, finally, Xiaomi is going to launch Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth/Lite, while Meizu is coming to launch the Meizu M16X.

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition announced in May comes with 3D Face Unlock, but the Mi 8 Pro announced today doesn't. Xiaomi has thrown in Infrared Face Unlock instead. The fingerprint scanner on this variant is embedded inside the display, and it's rated to be 29% faster than the one we saw on the Mi 8 Explorer Edition. But wait, that's not it.

- The Mi 8 Lite comes sans a headphone jack which means the same USB Type-C port has to be used for charging, data syncing and music playback (using USB Type-C headphones).

That said, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro is offered in three colors - Blue, Gold and a Transparent version that has a back panel showing off the innards of the phone, like the Snapdragon 845 SoC.

Availability:Goes on sale in China from September 21.
