This latest leak that comes via Techienize, claims to reveal a bunch of specifications about the Xiaomi Mi 8. Pretty much in line with the previous leaks, the new report claims that the upcoming Xiaomi flagship will feature a 6.2-inch Full HD (1080x2280) display with 19:9 aspect ratio, which contradicts previous rumors of a 6.01-inch display.

This leaks also claims that the Mi 8 will finally feature the in-display fingerprint scanner. Fingers crossed for that.

Further, under the hood, the Mi 8 is believed to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC, which is hardly any surprise. The SoC is reported to be equipped with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. Though there have also been reports of 8 GB RAM variant of the device, this leak, however, has no mention of that.

In terms of optics, the Mi 8 will reportedly sport a dual-camera setup at the back, which will be a combination of a 20 MP (f/1.7) and 16 MP (f/2.0) sensor. Up front, will apparently be 16 MP (f/2.0) camera.

Running the Xiaomi Mi 8 will be the latest MIUI, which is supposed to debut alongside the Mi 8. The new MIUI will be based on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. Fuelling the smartphone will be a 3,300 mAh battery.

Separately, there is another leak, which was reported by GizmoChina, according to which, the Xiaomi Mi 8 will come in two variants. There will be a 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage variant that will be priced at CNY 2,799 (approximately Rs 30,000), and the 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage model that will cost CNY 3,199 (approximately Rs 34,000).

Additionally, according to the leak, the launch of the Mi 8 can be anticipated sometime this week, as it claims that the device will be available for pre-order starting 31 May in China.
