From a thiết kế perspective sầu, the Xiaomày Mi 8 series has a great build with all the premium feel you can expect from a company that rides on the baông xã of Apple’s success. Speaking of which, the entire Mi 8 series is a blatant copycát of the điện thoại iPhone X as far as looks are concerned. Although Xiaongươi missed a few design cues here & there, the result is a trio of phones that look almost similar lớn the Apple flagship, but it comes at a price half that of the iPhone X.

Before looking at the markets that will be getting the new Xiaomi Mi 8, here are some highlights about the new Mi 8 series.

What you didn’t know about Xiaomi Mi 8 series

As pointed out, the new Mi 8 series consists of three phones – the entry-cấp độ Mi 8 SE, the middle-of-the-paông chồng Mi 8, và the high-over Mi 8 Explorer Edition. To help you better understand the trio, here are a few pointers:

The Mi 8 SE is the first lớn roông chồng the Snaprồng 710 processor

*

Never had we seen a device powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 chipset until Xiaomi announced the Mi 8 SE. This chipmix is the direct successor to lớn the SnapLong 600 series that has been a huge success over the years and with it comes a flurry of new features và capabilities that were previously exclusive to lớn the high-end Snapdragon 800 series.

Xiaomi finally made the switch khổng lồ OLED panels

For years, Xiaomi’s smartphones have relied on LCD panels – panels that have sầu on numerous occasions been labeled inferior khổng lồ the Samsung-made Super AMOLED screens we see on the Galaxy phones of this world. However, with the Xiaomày Mi 8 series, the company has finally made the switch lớn the best there is – Samsung AMOLED, a move that should for sure be welcomed by many fans out there.

Only the Mi 8 EE has 3D facial recognition

*

All three phones in the Mi 8 series are equipped with facial recognition, however, there are varied descriptions for the feature. Where the Mi 8 SE will simply tư vấn facial recognition via the selfie shooter, Xiaomi says the standard Mi 8 comes with an infrared facial recognition system that promises better performance và is more secure.

Things get even better when it comes to lớn the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, where you get iPhone X-lượt thích 3 chiều Face ID, making it the first Android device to adopt this type of giải pháp công nghệ.

The Mi 8 EE also comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner

*

In addition lớn being the first lớn add tư vấn for 3D facial recognition, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition also happens to lớn be the second device in the world lớn roông chồng in-display fingerprint scanning giải pháp công nghệ. Samsung was highly expected to lớn lead the way but it was beaten khổng lồ this giải pháp công nghệ earlier this year by yet another Chinese OEM, Vivo.

The Vivo X21 UD has since been followed up by the Vivo Nex that also supports in-display fingerprint scanning giải pháp công nghệ, but this handset came out after the Mi 8 EE’s launch.

As for the other two Mi 8 variants, you still have to lớn giảm giá khuyến mãi with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is still a likable feature and placement as well.

The Mi 8 EE is transparent

*

Smartphone HTC launched the HTC U11+ in late 2017 & one of the major highlights was the change to lớn the trending 18:9 aspect ratio. However, one thing that perhaps didn’t get the hype it deserved was the introduction of a transparent variant that gave users a view of the phone’s inside from the rear panel.

Apparently, Xiaomi has taken down this path with the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, where the phone’s bachồng panel is similarly transparent and it even shows what looks like the Snaprồng chipphối & other stuff, but then again, this is just a kiến thiết triông chồng. Even if what you are seeing isn’t the real internal design of the phone, this is a cool triông chồng.

The Mi 8 EE has a smaller battery

By opting for the premium Xiaongươi Mi 8 Explorer Edition và all of its transparent glory alongside 8GB of RAM and 3D facial recognition, you will also be foregoing one of the most important aspects in every smartphone users’ life – battery life.

Given that the Mi 8 and Mi 8 EE are identical phones with only a few tweaks here và there, we expect that the pair’s battery consumption rate will be at par. However, you are getting a smaller 3000mAh unit on the transparent model that could mean you get a shorter period of use on a single charge when compared to lớn the standard Mi 8.

On the brighter side, even if the battery does deplete fast, getting back on the road shouldn’t take long thanks to lớn the included support for Qualcomm’s Quiông xã Charge 4.0+ công nghệ. It’s also worth noting that the standard Mi 8 & Mi 8 EE, which both support QC4+, are also compatible with the slightly older Quiông chồng Charge 3.0 công nghệ.

Price and availability

Xiaongươi has been spreading its love khổng lồ more markets across the globe. We recently saw it open stores in France & Italy khổng lồ follow up on late last year’s launch in Spain & while we expect the Chinese OEM to bring the newly launched Mi 8 series to these markets, there’s no official word on the same.

Still, we are of the belief that Xiaomày Mi 8 will lead the way in the company’s push inlớn these markets & others that it has already established some presence. So far, we think the Mi 8 series – or at least the standard edition – will be sold in the following markets:
