On May 31, Xiaomi held an annual conference in Shenzhen and released a variety of products including the Xiaomi Mi 8, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Transparent Exploration Edition, the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, the Xiaomi Mi Band 3, the Xiaomi Mi VR Standalone, and MIUI 10. Obviously, the Xiaomi Mi 8 was in the spotlight. It is an ideal handset coming with tons of improvements including a better camera, dual-GPS, top-level configuration and new color options. So we are offering you to take a look at the most extraordinary variant, the blue.
On the front, the Mi 8 uses a notch screen. The corners are rounded a lot. The screen diagonal is 6.21 inches. It uses Samsung’s AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution, DCI-P3 wide color gamut, contrast ratio of 60000:1, and brightness of up to 600nit. The bangs area of the fuselage carries a 20MP front camera that can combine four pixels into one large 1.8-um pixel.
As we said, there are four color options including black, white, champagne gold and blue. The back carries a 12MP dual-camera using a Sony IMX363 sensor. As you remember, this is the same camera used in the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. It supports 2x optical zoom. There is also a fingerprint scanner placed on the back.
Not surprisingly, the manufacturer has removed the 3.5mm audio jack from the Xiaomi Mi 8.
We have already talked about its hardware in the previous article. So it’s senseless to recall them again.
At last, the Xiaomi Mi 8 runs on MIUI 10, which comes with tons of new features. Of course, it supports on-screen gestures.
