Days ago, Xiaomi held a conference in Shenzhen and launched 7 different products in succession. And the product that thrilled everyone was the new flagship, Xiaomi Mi 8. This is the best Android smartphone you and I have ever seen, as it comes with all the features one can think about. It comes in three variants, the 6+64GB variant, 6+128GB and 6+256GB variant. Let’s get to meet the world best smartphone in details
Xiaomi Mi 8: World Best Smartphone
Design & Appearance
The Xiaomi Mi 8 inherited lots of features from the Mi family but not only inherited but improved on him. Just like its junior ones, It has a certain arc on all 4 sides and a smooth transition to the metal middle frame but it was improved in that its curvature in the top and bottom sides of the Smartphone is made more “deep”, making the past design like water droplets more 3-dimensional. The smartphone sport a notch on the top, while the chin is narrowed slightly. Behind the phone, the back panel is made of glass. Compared with the traditional matte metal, the glass material feels softer. Thanks to the four-curved surface curvature processing, the phone brings quite a good touch and grip. It has dual camera projections which are smaller than other Mi series and within an acceptable range. It comes in 4 different colors, black, white, blue and gold
Hardware & Performance
The Xiaomi Mi 8 comes with nothing but the best CPU you can think about, the Snapdragon 845 AIE chip. To this respect, the smartphone scored 301,472 points at AnTuTu which is far ahead of OnePlus 6 that scored over 280.000 and was claimed to be one of the most powerful phones. This clearly shows that if you get this device, you are going to be holding the most powerful phone around the globe. This chipset is coupled with 6GB + 64GB/128GB/256GB memory combinations, support fingerprint unlock, infrared face recognition with support for QC4 + fast charge (standard 18W fast charge QC3. 0 Charger), it has a 3400mAh battery and supports NFC function. This is done due to the system-level optimization of MIUI 10.
Camera & Display
The Xiaomi Mi 8 rear camera uses a dual 12MP combination, the main camera uses the Sony IMX363 sensor, supports Dual PD focusing technology, using wide-angle + telephoto shooting. It sports AI intelligent scene recognition which is capable of identifying 206 kinds of scenes including 25 kinds of labels including blue sky, flowers, figures, and animals. These features come our way from the Sony IMX363 sensor. It sports 20MP as the front-facing camera, 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.

This feature is worth writing a separate paragraph for, as the Xiaomi Mi 8 is “the world’s first dual-band GPS mobile phone. Prior to Mi 8, all phones used only single GPS frequency band for positioning. At least 4 satellites were required for successful positioning. Taking into account the effects of Earth-ionosphere delay or building reflection, the theoretical error of the L1 band was 300 meters. Of course, the general navigation software has the base station positioning and fault tolerance mechanism of phone signals, and the error will not be so great.However, in the face of complex road conditions, there will still be navigation software that does not know which layer of the multi-level overpass it is or whether it is driving on the main road or the auxiliary road.
The innovation of Xiaomi Mi 8 is to support the 1571.42MHz L1 band and the 1165.45MHz L5 frequency band for positioning. The L5 band signal has a narrow waveform, which can avoid the problem of building blockage reflections; dual-frequency ionosphere delays are not the same for each other. The correction can eliminate the influence of the ionosphere on the delay of the electromagnetic wave signal, and the result is nothing more than accurate positioning.
Where To Buy The Xiaomi Mi 8
