Xiaomi Mi 8 to cost around €400, leak reveals

Yordan, 22 May 2018

Xiaomi is celebrating 8 years since its foundation and its upcoming flagship is likely to be the anniversary phone called Mi 8, instead of the previously anticipated Mi 7. According to a leaked photo, the device will come in two versions with different price tags - a version with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage for CNY2,799 (around €370/$440) and a high-end version with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage for CNY3,199 or about €420/$500.

The image also reveals the phone will have a 6.01” screen and 3D face recognition, similar to the Face ID implemented by Apple in the iPhone X. The chipset will be Snapdragon 845, which was already confirmed back in December by the Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun at a Qualcomm conference.

The manufacturer is jumping on the AI bandwagon with its flagship as well and will equip the Mi 8's dual camera with the tech that recognizes over 200 scenes, including 12 different portrait modes that we saw initially in the Xiaomi Mi 6X' debut last month. An alleged video also suggested the phone might come with an under-display fingerprint scanner.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 was initially expected to arrive tomorrow in Shenzhen, China, but latest sources point to May 31 as a launch date.

No, Apple didn't start it. Apple made it fancy and trendy. So, yes, they are copying Apple.
