Xiaomi’s new flagship phone MI 8 is here

MI 8

The MI 8 is Xiaomi’s new flagship smartphone. It’s the company’s first smartphone with a notch. The MI 8 has a 6.21-inch OLED screen from Samsung, wrapping around a genuinely extensive notch.

The smartphone has a four-way bended glass back panel and an aluminium frame. Inside, there’s Qualcomm’s high-end Snapdragon 845 processor. The new 12-megapixel double camera setup obviously scores 105 on DxOMark with a 20-megapixel selfie camera.

In the company’s flagship phones list, it is also launching MI 8 Explorer Edition. The Explorer Edition has an in-display fingerprint sensor that, for the first time in a phone, uses pressure sensitivity. Xiaomi also claims that the Explorer Edition is the first Android phone in the world to use 3D face recognition technology, like the iPhone X’s Face ID. It also has an Animoji equivalent on board. The Explorer Edition has a transparent black panel which makes it look awesome.

The final entry in the MI 8 lineup is the MI 8 SE, a smaller, slower, and cheaper version of the MI 8 that clearly takes naming cues from Apple’s own fun-sized model. It’s the first phone to use Qualcomm’s brand-new midrange Snapdragon 710 processor, and it has a 5.88-inch OLED screen.

The MI 8 is evaluated from 2,699 yuan (~$421) in China, with the Explorer Edition beginning from 3,699 yuan ($577) and the SE accessible for 1,799 yuan ($281). As ever from Xiaomi, these costs are to a great degree aggressive.


The MI 8 will be accessible in China from June 05, with the SE following on the eighth and the Explorer Edition coming at a later date. No word on estimating and accessibility for India or some other markets at this time.
