Xiaomi Mi 8: Release date, specs, features and price

If you liked the look of the Xiaomi Mi Band 2, it's nearly certain you'll like the design of the Mi Band 3 as the design is remarkably similar.

The Mi 8's 6.21-inch display has a large notch cut out of the top for its front camera and sensors, and the dual camera system is stacked vertically - just like Apple's flagship from past year. The Chinese company has also unveiled a Mi 8 Explorer Edition that comes with exclusive features such as an in-display fingerprint sensor, 3D face recognition and a transparent back. It has a pair of cameras on its rear that are arranged vertically (both are 12 megapixel), and the front of the Explorer Edition of the phone features a 20MP camera equipped with infrared face unlocking technology (which sounds a lot like Apple's Face ID to us). The Snapdragon 710 is aimed to provide flagship features to devices but with a smaller price tag so the Mi 8 SE is considerably cheaper as opposed to the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition, as you'll soon find out if you read the pricing differences below. The Mi Band 3 features a 0.78-inch (128 x 80) OLED display, and unlike the Mi Band 2's panel, this display is actually touch-sensitive.

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition (EE) is the first Xiaomi phone to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Hopefully, these devices will be available outside China eventually; Xiaomi recently began selling its phones in Europe and is quickly gaining on rival hardware brands.
