The Xiaomi Mi 8 uses a quad-curved glass body + a 7-series aluminum middle frame design. On the front, it is packed with the Samsung’s 6.21-inch AMOLED wide color gamut full-screen. Actually, the bangs screen of the Mi 8 is one of the highlighted features. It also comes with a resolution of 2248×1080, an aspect ratio of 18.7:9, a screen share of 86.68%, a contrast ratio of 60000:1, a high brightness of 600nit, a sunscreen, an eye protection mode, a step-less color temperature adjustment, etc.
As expected, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is equipped with a Snapdragon 845 AIE chip. Thanks to it, the phone scores 301,472 points at AnTuTu. Thus, it’s the most powerful phone around the globe, even outrunning the OnePlus 6 that scores over 280.000. It’s mainly done due to the system-level optimization of MIUI 10. There is a 3400mAh battery supporting Quick Charge 4.0+.
Our protagonist also sports a 12MP+12MP dual-camera with an aperture of f/1.8, 1.4-micron large pixels, dual-core focus, four-axis image stabilization, AI scene recognition supporting up to 206 kinds of unique AI studio lighting effects, AI short video clips support, and many more. All these features come our way from the Sony IMX363 sensor. That’s why it is capable of scoring up to 105 points at DxOMark. The front-facing camera uses a 20MP sensor, which is the world’s first camera supporting AI micro plastic beauty. It also supports infrared unlocking. Thus the phone can identify your face in a completely dark environment.
At last, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is the world’s first dual-frequency dual GPS phone. To solve all the problems related to the GPS positioning and navigation errors, the Mi 8 supports L1+L5 dual-frequency dual-precision positioning. Generally, there are two factors affecting the accurate positioning – the ionosphere delay (1) and the reflection of buildings (2). Our protagonist uses the L1+L5 dual-frequency dual-channel positioning, which can effectively correct the ionosphere delay. At the same time, the error of the L1 band is 300 meters, while it is 30 meters for the L5. The latter is 10 times more accurate than L1, which effectively solves the reflection interference of urban buildings.
