Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite goes global, arrives first in France, Ukraine

Yordan, 29 October 2018

Last month Xiaomi announced the Mi 8 Lite as a more affordable option of its flagship series, but the phone was introduced only on the Chinese market. It eventually made its way to Ukraine and now Donovan Sung, global spokesperson of the company, said on Twitter France is also getting the Lite variant of the Mi 8 and other markets will follow soon.

The device was initially introduced in a gradient Twilight Gold, Dream Blue, and a more clean Deep Space Gray colors. It looks like all three options will hit the global scene since Sung is preparing us for “some colorful mixes”.

The device arrived initially in three memory configurations - 4/64 GB, 6/64 GB, and 6/128 GB. Prices were respectively CNY1,399, CNY1,699, and CNY1,999. This translates from $205/€175 to $290/€250, but we expected slightly higher price in Europe and other markets after taxes and import duites are levied.

You should check the specs again. Radio bands good enough for you but not others. Check out what radio bands Moto X4 or Oneplus 5 have.
