Xiaomi has announced that it will release a new Mi 8 Youth Edition variant in China on November 16th. This new Mi 8 Youth Edition variant will come with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while the remaining specifications will remain the same. The Mi 8 Youth Edition is the China variant of the Mi 8 Lite and was launched in September this year. It has a 6.26-inch display, Snapdragon 660 SoC, and dual rear cameras.
The new Mi 8 Youth Edition variant with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage will cost RMB 1,699 (~Rs 17,700). This is the same price as the handset’s 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant.
