Alongside the two new flagships, Xiaomi has pulled the wrap of the new Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. The SE variant of the phone is also one the first phone to come with a Snapdragon 710 mid-range chipset in the market.
While the Mi 8 and its Explorer Edition are definitely powerful on its own, the SE version is something most of the users in Nepal would look on to. The reason being is its price point.
The Snapdragon 710 chipset is latest in the lineup from Qualcomm which is expected to deliver flagship like performance for less money. The chipset comes with 4×4 (eight) Kyro cores. Out of which the first four performance core can clock up to 2.2GHz, while the remaining [four] cores are for power efficiency with a clock speed of 1.7GHz. Interestingly enough, the chipset is also capable of offering AI abilities similar to the 845. This should open the whole new door for AI implementation even in mid-tier devices.
Besides the chipset, the Mi 8 SE has a 5.8-inch AMOLED display, a dual 12+5MP rear camera, 20MP selfie snapper, and a 3,120mAh battery inside. The whole phone boots on Android 8.0 Oreo on top of the company’s new MIUI 10.
The Mi 8 SE will go on sale from next month in China for $280. As for Nepal, expect it to launch within a month or two after the international launch.
