There are several photos on the network that show the mysterious Xiaomi smartphone, referred to as the Xiaomi Mi 8X. The phone resembles Xiaomi Mi 8, but there is no biometric sensor on the back panel. It is said that this may be a medium with a fingerprint reader in the screen and Snapdragon 710.
Xiaomi Mi 8, Xiaomi Mi 8 SE and Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition were presented on the same day, a little over 2 months ago. It would seem that the Mi 8 family will not be expanded with a new model in the near future, but in reality Xiaomi may prepare another premiere.
The new Xiaomi in the pictures
On Chinese Weibo there are pictures presenting quite a mysterious Xiaomi model: On each photo we see the back panel of the smartphone, which is very similar to the Xiaomi Mi 8. The shape of the solid is similar and the location of a dual camera. Nowhere, however, can you see the fingerprint reader, which in the flagship we find just on the backs . Leaky claims that the biometric sensor will be integrated into the screen , but Xiaomi could also give it up by putting on the face recognition system. The phone visible in the pictures is called Xiaomi Mi 8X , but we do not know if it's the right name. The smartphone is supposed to work under the control of the Snapdragon 710 chip , which we know from Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. This raises suspicions that we are dealing with the Comet model, the existence of which was once reported by XDA. He is to offer the SD710 as well as the OLED screen with Always On Display, a 3100 mAh battery , an infrared diode, Dual SIM and Android Oreo. NFC will not be like the microSD slot . Interestingly, Comet will not get the screen with Notch, only standard. This can be a really interesting alternative for those who do not like the screen cuts.
Substitute for the Mi Note series?
There are suggestions that the Xiaomi Mi 8X is supposed to be a replacement for Xiaomi Mi Note 4 / Mi Note 5 , which probably means the final end of this series. All in all, I will not be surprised at such a turn of events, because Xiaomi Mi Note 3 has already announced the degradation of the Mi Note family, which now seems to be unnecessary. In the end, almost every smartphone now has a screen in the region of 5.5-6.2 inches. Source: Weibo ( 1 , 2 )
