Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition officially unveiled, comes in vibrant colours and starting price of RMB1399

After a series of leaks and teasers, Xiaomi has finally unveiled the latest addition to the Mi 8 family, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition.

In an event in Chengdu China, this budget-oriented version of Mi 8 is announced alongside a slew of other Xiaomi tech gadgets. As the company announced, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition has three highlights – a more trendy appearance, a close-to-flagship configuration, and a higher price-/performance ratio.

In comparison to the newly announced Apple iPhone XR, which has a 35.2mm bangs area, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition’s notch part is 19.4mm, while the frame is narrower, only 1.95mm, and the body is slimmer, 7.5mm.

This is also the first smartphone of Xiaomi coming with a gradient back panel. Its design is inspired by the works of an impressionist, Claude Monet. There are two color options of dream blue and twilight gold. However, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition also comes in deep gray (monotone) variant.

The smartphone also uses the same vacuum nano-sputtering process as the flagship phones such as the Huawei P20. It produces a mirror effect on the glass.

On the front, the phone carries a 24MP camera (Sony IMX576), which is the highest front-facing camera supporting AI. The latter includes multiple options, such as AI portrait mode, AI scene camera, AI makeup beauty, AI video beauty, and automatic HDR.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition is packed with a 6.26-inch full-screen, a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, 3350mAh battery supporting QC3.0 fast charging, and a 12MP rear camera (1.4μm pixel size, dual-core focus, f/1.9 aperture), which is accompanied by a 5MP secondary sensor. The latter is identical to the original Mi 8. It has a 12-to-0 advantage for the Huawei P20 in the AI scene recognition. Of course, this handset supports Xiao AI voice assistant.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition 4+64GB is priced at 1399 yuan (RM845), the 6+64GB costs 1699 yuan (RM1,026), and the 6+128GB is available at 1999 yuan (RM1,208). It will be available for purchase in China starting September 25.

Malaysian availability will have to wait and we are confident Xiaomi will not disappoint us in this.
