Xiaomi to celebrate its 8th birthday with Anniversary phone

Peter, 17 May 2018

Has it really been 8 years? Xiaomi was founded in 2010 and has become one of the leading smartphone makers since then. To mark the occasion, the company may be preparing a Xiaomi Mi 8 Anniversary edition phone.

This hasn’t been confirmed officially, but a few tantalizing images have started circulating on Weibo. There’s the giant eight, allegedly a teaser for a Snapdragon 845-powered phone with an under display fingerprint reader and 3D face scanning. The image on the right seems to announce that some lucky fans will win one of 100 Mi 8 phones.

And this (supposedly) will be its retail box:

In case you’ve missed it, rumor has it that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be rebranded Mi 8 to honor Xiaomi’s anniversary (8 being a lucky number and all). Or the new name could be limited to the Anniversary edition. It should be unveiled on May 23 and go on pre-order on May 27.
