Mi 8 & Mi 8 Explorers Edition Launched. Comes with Face ID & Under Display Fingerprint!

Published

Xiaomi has officially launched its latest flagship phone in the Mi series, the Mi 8 today. The company has skipped the Mi 7 to match with its anniversary. Xiaomi is competing with other flagship devices like the iPhone X, Galaxy S9+ and the OnePlus 6 with their latest Mi 8.

The device equips the notch as seen on the iPhone X, but with a difference. Other OEMs used to feature the notch in their devices for reducing the screen size and making more screen to body ratio. But Xiaomi has implemented the infrared face unlock similar to the iPhone X. The infrared face unlock claims to unlock the device even in the dark.

The notch also equips the front camera, proximity sensor, and the earpiece. In terms of the display used, the company has finally decided to use OLED. The smartphone sports a bright 6.21-inch FHD+ OLED display and has an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The front camera used in the device is a 20 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The sensor has a 1.8μm pixel size which allows more light intake.mi8_front_camera

At the rear side, there is a vertically stacked dual camera setup. Xiaomi has gone with dual 12 MP sensors this time. The cameras feature 4 axis Optical Image Stabilization. The device makes use of AI for scene detection and video editing.

The phone is also the first phone to use a Dual GPS, which uses the traditional L1 frequency and also the L5 frequency (which is used by mostly aeronautical industry) for GPS. This makes it the most accurate GPS on a phone ever!

The processor used in the device is Snapdragon 845. It is coupled with 6 GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device runs on MIUI 10 based on Android Oreo. The Xiaomi Mi 8 prices start at 2699 Yuan, approximately Rs.28,500 for 6/64GB variant, 2999 Yuan (approximately Rs. 31,500) for the 6/128 variant and 3200 Yuan (approximately Rs. 33,500) for the 6/256GB variant.

There is a special edition of Mi 8 which the company calls Explorer Edition. We heard rumors in the past that Xiaomi has been working on the Mi 8 with an in-display fingerprint sensor. This has just turned out to be true with this edition. The company claims that this new in-display fingerprint sensor unlocks faster than the Vivo X21. The rear side is translucent and shows off it’s SoC. This edition is priced at 3699 Yuan which roughly translates to Rs.39,000.
