The glass-clad Xiaomi Mi 8 sports a 6.21in 2248x1080 OLED screen complete with a large Apple-esque notch at the top that accommodates an in-house infrared solution for 3D Face Unlock. In terms of storage, Mi 8 comes with. Today's event witnessed the launch of Mi 8 SE (Special Edition), Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Mi VRStandalone headset, Mi Band 3 and MIUI 10.

Connectivity options on the Xiaomi Mi 8 include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi (dual-band, 2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, dual-band Global Positioning System (with L1/ L5 signal support, said to be the world's first phone with this feature), and USB Type-C.

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.

Xiaomi said the phone will go on sale in China 5 and 8 June with three different versions offered.

Xiaomi is on a product launching spree as part of its 8th Anniversary celebrations and the company has just launched the Mi Band 3 in China. Coinciding with the launch of the device, DxOMark, the camera benchmarking website also released its in-depth analysis of the camera on the Mi 8. The Mi 8 SE is the first phone to come with this chip, which is supposed to deliver a 30 percent battery consumption improvement compared to the Snapdragon 660.


The Chinese tech titan announced a trio of new phones on Thursday, including the new Mi 8. This list includes Mi 5X, Mi 5c, Mi5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 4, Mi 4c, Mi 4S, Mi Note 3, Mi Max 2, Mi Max, Redmi 5, Redmi 5A, Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi 4, Redmi 4A, Redmi 4x, Redmi 3S/3X, Redmi Pro, Redmi Note5A, Redmi Note 4, Redmi Note 4X and Redmi Note 3.

The MIUI 10, which should be based on Android Oreo (Xiaomi does not have a log yet), is largely focused on artificial intelligence. Older members of the Mi family lack microSD card slots, and Xiaomi didn't mention one, so buyers should probably pick their storage option with an eye toward the future. The display has a resolution of 2248×1080 pixels, 18.7:9 aspect ratio.

As always, the worldwide prices of the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, and Mi 8 Explorer Edition will be slightly higher than their prices in China, but we don't have any details on that front for now. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 845 platform with Artificial Intelligence Engine (AIE) and Adreno 630 graphics, achieving an AnTuTu score over 300,000. It also bears a smaller battery, at 3000mAh.

The dual camera setup consists of a 12MP main sensor with f/1.8, 1.4µm pixel size, OIS and dual pixel PDAF coupled with a secondary 12MP f/2.4 unit capable of 2x optical zoom and also supports dual pixel PDAF.
