Xiaomi Mi 8 is official: Everything you need to know

Xiaomi Mi 8 SE Xiaomi Mi 8: Release date, specs, features and price
| 01 June, 2018, 20:57

The notch on the Mi 8 is larger than what we have seen on other recently launched Android smartphones. The Snapdragon 710 is the first in Qualcomm's 700-series and offers performance values slightly weaker than last year's flagship Snapdragon 835.

Unveiled at a press event echoing Apple's keynotes, the latest flagship smartphone from Xiaomi has nothing - or at least very little - to envy of the iPhone X, with top-end design and performance, 3D facial recognition and a dual camera. The company didn't have anything to say on the subject of water resistance or headphone jacks for all three handsets, so we assume neither feature is present. It has similar specs to the regular Mi 8 but a translucent rear, 3D face sensing IR sensor in the notch at the front and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Xiaomi Mi VR Standalone has been designed in collaboration with Facebook-owned Oculus and is identical to Oculus Go that went on sale in the United States early this month.

Xiaomi says the Mi 8 is the first phone to use dual-frequency Global Positioning System.

The Mi 8 has a pair of 12-megapixel cameras on the back side and a 20-MP snapper on the front.

The Mi 8 SE is a step further down the ladder, packing a mid-tier processor (a Snapdragon 710), smaller AMOLED display (5.88-inch), and 12MP and 5MP rear cameras.


The list of phones includes Mi Note 3, Mi 5X, Mi 5c, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 4, Mi 4c, Mi 4S, Mi Max 2, Mi Max, Redmi 5, Redmi 5A, Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi 4, Redmi 4A, Redmi 4X, Redmi 3S/Redmi 3X, Redmi Pro, Redmi Note 5A, Redmi Note 4 Qualcomm/Redmi Note 4X, Redmi Note 4 MTK, and Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm. The selfie camera supports AI portrait mode and AI beautify. The front-facing camera is a 16-megapixel lens with f/2.0 aperture, 1-micron pixels, gyro EIS, Auto HDR and is capable of shooting videos in Full HD resolution.

Xiaomi Mi 8 comes with NFC, USBType-C, dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, and Bluetooth 5.0. Honor 10 also has face unlock with a home button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor. It also reduces signal delays, making navigation super fast.

OnePlus 6 starts at Rs 34,999 for the base variant and Rs 39,999 for the model with 128GB storage. OnePlus 6 is available online via Amazon India and the company's e-store and across authorised retailers including Croma.

Available in 4GB RAM/64GB memory and 6GBRAM/64GB memory variants, they come at a price of CNY 1,799 (about Rs 19,000) and CNY 1,999 (about Rs. 21,100) respectively. Mi 8 makes use of Corning Gorilla Glass for protection.

The device is now available only in China and the company is yet to announce details about its global launch.
