Mi 8 SE to Launch in India as Mi 8i in July, to come with Mi Band 3

Published

on

Earlier this month, Xiaomi had launched its latest flagship, the Mi 8 and also introduced Mi 8 SE, alongside a special Mi 8 Explorer Edition. apart from the ‘Geeky Looking’ Mi 8 Explorer Edition, the Mi 8 SE is somewhat special due to the fact that it is being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, the first phone to have a chipset from the new Snapdragon 700 Series.

Now, a new report from Beebom claims that Xiaomi is going to launch the Mi 8 SE in India next month as the Mi 8i. As per the website, they got this piece of info from their sources in Xiaomi’s retailer network. The website also claimed that they know the reason why the phone is a being named like this, as their source in Xiaomi told them that ‘i’ in the name denotes ‘India’.

The claim seems bold and clear as even on Xiaomi’s official website, the product page of Mi 8 SE has the URL mentioning ‘mi8i’, instead of Mi 8 SE. There are claims about pricing saying that the phone will be priced between Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 20,000 in India, this price range is similar to the pricing of Mi 8 SE in China. The website also says that Xiaomi may possibly launch the Mi Band 3 in India, alongside the phone.

Xiaomi had named phones like this earlier as well. Back in 2015, the first ‘Made for India’ smartphone was launched by Xiaomi in India, the Mi 4i and now, after three years, when Xiaomi is holding a strong position in the Indian smartphone market, probably the company is reconsidering a refresh. It is now being expected that the Mi 8i and Mi Band 3 may arrive in India by the end of next month or in August. The Mi Band 3 is priced at Rs. 1,800 (approx.), and the variant of Mi Band 3 with NFC is priced at Rs. 2,100.

Now, sources claim that the brand has plans to make the device available in India in the upcoming weeks. On the display front, the brand has placed a waterdrop shaped notch to house the camera which brings the screen-to-body ratio to 87%.

Right before the launch of the device, it was listed on Vmall, a Chinese e-commerce website which helped to get a hint of the specifications.
