Xiaomi built its mobile empire with iPhone knockoffs, and it looks the company hasn’t outgrown the habit.
The infamous forehead, that little bulge, or notch, at the top of the iPhone’s display that scoops into the screen, upsetting the pristine lines of the iPhone X’s greatly reduced bezel, received very mixed reactions when the device was first unveiled in September.
Xiaomi also claims the phone is the first to have “dual Global Positioning System”.
The Mi 8 price has been set at CNY 2,699 (roughly Rs. 28,600) for the 6GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage variant, CNY 2,999 (about Rs. 31,600) for the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant, and CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 34,800) for the 6GB RAM/ 256GB inbuilt storage model. The Mi Band 3 sports a somewhat different design to the Mi Band 3, as it’s considerably more curved than the Mi Band 2, while a capacitive key is included here as well, though it blends into the design of the Mi Band 3 far more than it was the case with the Mi Band 2.
“The Mi Band 3 features a 0.78” OLED panel with 128 x 80-pixel resolution and connects to devices through Bluetooth 4.2. In terms of storage, Mi 8 comes with.

The MIUI 10, which should be based on Android Oreo (Xiaomi does not have a log yet), is largely focused on artificial intelligence.

The processor is the new Snapdragon 710, Qualcomm’s chip for upper-mid-range devices that was just introduced the other week. The Explorer Edition will retail for $577, the SE for $281.
Xiaomi Mi 8 comes packed with top end specifications in addition with quite a few interesting features.
