Back in May, Xiaomi introduced the Mi 8 lineup. The lineup came with three phones including the Vanilla Mi 8 with a fingerprint scanner at its back. There was a Mi 8 Explorer with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a transparent back showing the internals of the phone. The third variant was the Mi 8 SE with a fingerprint scanner at the back and powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 CPU. The 4th phone, that leaked today, is rumored to be a mixture of all the previous three Mi 8 phones.

According to the source who published the images, the phone will have an in-display fingerprint scanner. The leaked Mi 8X will also run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 CPU. The outlook and build of the phone will remain the same as that of the previous Xiaomi Mi 8 phones.Xiaomi Mi 8X
