A 24-megapixel selfie camera, a 6.3-inch display and... a Snapdragon 660 processor. That last bit may have disappointed a few wishlist writers.
It has aspects of the Mi 8 SE and supposedly has a big feature grabbed right from the Mi 8 Explorer Edition. How much will it be?
The OnePlus 6 notched a million sales in 22 days. The Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Mi 8 SE ran up that number in 18. It's competitive.
The Explorer Edition and the Mi 8 SE don't seem to be coming immediately, but even the standard Mi 8 variants will take several weeks to come.
There's probably a Snapdragon 1000 on the way and you might want to stick around and see where it will appear. Also, the Pixel 3 will be made by Google... for reals... sorta.
To celebrate the company's eight anniversary, Xiaomi has officially taken the wraps off the highly anticipated Mi 8, as well as the truly remarkable Mi 8 Explorer Edition and slightly lower-end Mi 8 SE.
It looks like that oft-rumored Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone will be joined to market by a smaller, slightly lower-end Mi 8 SE with an iPhone X-style notch of its own and a Snapdragon 710 processor. The Mi Band 3 is also coming.
