  • Xiaomi Mi8 SE

The downside is that like most limited edition Xiaomi phones, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is unlikely to make its way outside of China.

The Mi 8 boasts the latest Snapdragon 845 processor, an FHD+ (2248 x 1080 pixels) AMOLED display, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with AI-powered features for improving your pictures, and a 20-megapixel snapper in the front.

The manufacturer provided less detail about the smaller Mi 8 SE.

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition is a step-up from the regular Mi 8 in a number of ways.

Xiaomi follows a pretty basic recipe when designing a new high-end smartphone: it has to give consumers lots more bang for the buck than the competition.

If you're still searching for something even better than the Xiaomi Mi 8, you need not look too far.

The Mi 8 has a 6.21-inch OLED screen from Samsung.

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition features similar specs to the Mi 8, but comes with several special features, including a couple of industry firsts.

Just like the Mi 8, the Mi 8 SE also has a dual camera setup with a 12 MP primary camera with an f/1.7 aperture and a 5 MP secondary depth sensor. But Xiaomi claims the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is the first to actually do it in 3D, which adds more security. The notch houses a 20 MP f/2.0 1.8-micron pixel selfie camera with AI features, a proximity sensor, an IR lighting module and lens, and the earpiece. The Mi 8 "is the first ever smartphone in the world to use pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint technology, meaning it has a dedicated pressure sensor that activates unlocking more quickly". The RAM and storage options are similar to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The Mi 8 will run Xiaomi's custom MIUI 10 skin on top of Android (Xiaomi didn't say which version, but it's likely Oreo), and the new updated skin will feature gesture controls and a driving mode that uses Xiaomi's own Xiao Ai voice assistant. The fingerprint sensor is now located right below the camera module.

We are not sure who's providing the Dual-frequency Global Positioning System chip to Xiaomi, but we know Broadcom, who has bee a world leader with Global Positioning System tech has been working on the exact solution for a while now.

The Mi 8 carries a price tag of CNY 2,699 (approximately Rs 28,600) for the 6GB RAM/64GB variant, CNY 2,999 (approximately Rs 31,600) for the 6GB/128GB variant, and CNY 3,299 (approximately Rs 34,800) for the 6GB RAM/256GB variant. And all that for a starting price of 2,699 yuan (US$421).
