After a few weeks of gossip, Xiaomi presented new models of the flagship Mi 8 yesterday. For the last few days, the Chinese giant presented posters inviting to the conference. According to the rumors that circulated the network, one of the new models was to be called Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition, but it will not. Two new smartphones are Mi 8 Lite and Mi 8 Pro. Five different Mi 8 models have been available since yesterday, in my opinion it is too large.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro
Let me start with a stronger version of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro. It has indent dimensions as the standard Mi 8, but the word Pro indicates that we are dealing with a more powerful model. The processor is the same, because it is the most efficient unit on the market - it is Snapdragon 845 clocked at 2.8 GHz. It will be available in the 6 or 8 GB version of RAM, and the internal memory is 128 GB in both models. The graphics processor has also not changed, it will be Adreno 630 that can handle any game. The 6,21 diagonal screen with the 1080 x 2248 resolution has a notch at the top, so-called Notch.
The biggest novelty in the Mi 8 Pro is the fingerprint reader located under the display. The same reader is in the Mi 8 Explorer Edition. The smartphone will be available for sale from tomorrow and two brand new colors will be offered: Twilight Gold and Dream Blue.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro has been priced in China on 3199 yuan, or about 470 $ for the version with 6 GB RAM and about 525 $ for the version with 8 GB RAM. As for me, refreshing the Mi 8 line is unnecessary, it's better if Xiaomi focused on the promotion of the Mi Mix 3 which will premiere in October. I am waiting for a new frameless. I already had Mi 8, now it's time for a new trend, i.e. a smartphone with a slider, and this is how it should be Mi Mix 3. The new Mi 8 Pro smartphone will be the international Mi 8 Explorer Edition.
