The Xiaomi Mi 8 was the center of unstoppable rumors in the past few weeks and not so surprisingly, the manufacturer has confirmed most rumors to be true. The phone got launched today in a grant event and it’s impressive design combined with the iPhone inspired top notch could definitely make it a fan favorite yet again.
The Mi 8 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and has 3D Face Unlock as well as the top notch. Both these features are borrowed from Apple iPhone X but everyone is doing the top notch these days. So, it shouldn’t be a huge thing to notice.
The Xiaomi Mi 8 sports a dual camera and a dual GPS setup. The phone houses a 12mp rear camera with 1.8 aperture and another 12mp telephoto lens with 2.4 aperture. The primary camera uses Sony’s IMX363 sensor and the phone’s camera has acquired a massive 99 points from DxOMark for its camera quality. That’s quite high and even higher than the Google Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X.
A large 6.21-inch Samsung AMOLED display should favor media lovers. It sports a 2248×1080 panel but the only disturbing part is that this amazing phone doesn’t have an audio jack. Based on the announcement and conversion rates, the Xiaomi Mi 8 with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage will cost around $420.
The Mi 8 Explorer Edition with a transparent design and on-screen fingerprint scanner will be more expensive at $500. The phone is expected to eventually be rolled out to other markets outside China in June.
