Xiaomi has diversified its smartphone lineup, thanks to the launch of the new Mi 8 Pro. The new flagship from the Chinese company comes with some useful and exciting quirks.
Reportedly known as the Mi 8 Explorer Edition in China, the new Mi 8 Pro has a similar pressure sensitive fingerprint scanner but replaces the 3D face unlock with an IR scanner for facial unlock. Powering this thing is Snapdragon 845 chipset accompanied by either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Shifting the focus, the phone has a 6.21-inch display with a notch at the top. The display is Super AMOLED and is assured to offer vibrant colors and pure black. At the back, for cameras, the Mi 8 Pro has a pair of 12MP (f/1.8) + 12MP (f/2.4) sensors, whilst the front is taken care by a 20MP selfie camera.
As far as pricing is concerned, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro will go on sale for CNY 3,200 (approx. $466) for the 6GB/128GB variant and CNY 3,600 (approx. $525) for the 8GB/128GB variant. As for the availability outside China, there’s no word from the company. However, we expect the phone to hit the floor within a month or two in Nepal.
