Update: Along with the TENAA certification, we have also discovered that the Mi 8X has been certified by MIIT as well. The device carries the same model number which was mentioned in its TENAA certification: M1808D2TE. No new information about the upcoming phone has been revealed through the MIIT certification document, except for the presence of its connectivity options, including its compatible mobile radio frequencies and Bluetooth.
We already know that Xiaomi has debuted the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, and the Mi 8 Explorer Edition smartphones in China, back in May. Additionally, we were aware of the fact that the sequel to these handsets, i.e the Mi 8X, is on the way. The smartphone even received the required 3C certification in China a few weeks ago, that had revealed its model as: M1808D2TE, M1808D2TT and M1808D2TC. Today, the Mi 8X (M1808D2TE) has achieved the TENAA certification in China. Let’s see what the TENAA listing reveals.

A 3250mAh battery will fuel the device, that may have fast charging support. We will see the conventional connectivity options such as dual-SIM support, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. That’s all the information we can infer from the TENAA listing for now. Unfortunately, there are no images, and nor any detailed specs revealed by the certification authority.
