The Mi 8 is the new flagship phone from Xiaomi, and it carries on the excellent work of its predecessors.
The Xiaomi Mi 8 is a trendsetter in many ways, including navigation. This is the first ever smart phone equipped with dual-frequency GPS, making for unerring accuracy when you need it. And don't forget the world's first pressure sensitive in-screen fingerprint sensor!
Xiaomi phones are renowned for their good looks and the Mi 8 is no exception. The ultra-thin four-sided curved body makes a great first impression, and the rounded design also makes it nice to hold on to, with a lightweight and comfortable hand-feel.
Those first impressions are enhanced further when the display springs into life. The6.21” AMOLED Full Screen Display goes right to the edge while the sharper contrast and wide colour palette really stands out.
Xiaomi's reputation for producing phones with high-quality cameras remains intact thanks to the AI dual camera with optical zoom. Studio lighting effects and 206 detectable scenes only add to the magic, while the AI short video editing is another snappy feature.
A convenient blend of ease and security; IR face unlock works instantly, even when it's dark.
Powering all of these features is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Flagship processor with AIE 845. The 3400 mAh battery gives ongoing charge and supports Quick Charge 4+ for added convenience.
A newer model Xiaomi Mi 9 6GB 128GB was released in December 2018.
