The rumor claiming that the Xiaomi Mi Note 4 will be launched in China in August could be true, after all. A Xiaomi smartphone with the model number M1807E8A, believed to be the Mi Note 3‘s successor, has been spotted on the site of China certification body TENAA. That same device was given a 3C Certification — or China Compulsory Certification — in June.

Based on the images, the Mi Note 4 will feature a transparent back panel, reminiscent of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition that was announced on June 1 in China.

That specific design choice has not been without controversy. There were accusations that the see-through backing might not be showing working innards, as Xiaomi had claimed. A teardown of the handset should settle the issue.

The front of the Xiaomi Mi Note 4 is similar to the flagship Mi 8 series as well. It’s rocking another love-it-or-hate-it feature: the notch, where the front camera and other sensors will most likely be housed.

Unfortunately, no specifications can be found on TENAA yet. Only the phone’s support for TD-LTE, LTE-FDD, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA2000, CDMA 1X, and GSM standards has been revealed.

But there are rumors that the Mi Note 4 will share almost the same internals as the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 that debuted on the SE? Check. Always-on AMOLED screen, 3,100mAh battery, MIUI on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, and IR blaster? Check. Lack of NFC support and a microSD card slot for memory expansion? None of those, too.

If everything here turns out to be true, then the Xiaomi Mi Note 4 could be a Mi 8 SE in a Mi 8 Explorer Edition’s clothing.
