Xiaomi will release a Special Edition Mi 8 on May 31

Ivan, 29 May 2018

You can't possibly have missed the fact that Xiaomi has an event in two days - May 31 - at which it's going to unveil the Mi 8, the Mi Band 3 and MIUI 10. But it may also launch a surprise Xiaomi Mi 8 SE (probably Special Edition), as evidenced by a special CNY 50 coupon Xiaomi will give lucky buyers and a leaked retail sticker from the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE's display.

The coupon - or voucher - lists the items eligible for receiving CNY50 discount with and one of those is a Mi 8 SE.

What the screen sticker from the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE's retail box reveals is that it will be a lower-spec version of the Mi 8. It will replace the Mi 8's Snapdragon 845 with a Snapdragon 710 and it will have either 4GB or 6GB of RAM.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 SE will share the notch of the Mi 8 but it will likely lack the Face ID-like tech the flagship Mi 8 is expected to premiere.

The selfie camera will be a 20MP unit - higher-res than the Mi 8's 16MP front camera.

Meanwhile, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 has appeared on Geekbench sporting Android 8.1, an unnamed octa-core chipset and 3GB of RAM.

Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Y2 on June 7 in India and it's believed it is a rebranded Redmi S2.

If that turns out true then the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 will have a 5.99-inch 1440x720px screen, a Snapdragon 625 chipset, dual 12MP+5MP camera and a metal body.
