Xiaomi Mi8 out, showing DXoMark is better than an iPhone

Xiaomi Mi8 out, showing DXoMark is better than an iPhone”

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun stated that the Mi 8 achieved 99 points overall and 105 points in the photo category in DxOMark tests beating the Mi Mix 2S and the iPhone X. The cameras support AI enhancement for more than 200 scenes and can take high quality low-lights shots thanks to 4-in-1 pixel binning. The phone copied both the rounded corners and notch on the front of the device, along with the vertical camera bump on the rear.

Xiaomi is going all-out with the Mi 8 Explorer Edition which has an in-display fingerprint sensor for the first time in a phone.

OnePlus 6 sports a dual-camera setup of 16-megapixel Sony IMX 519 sensor, and a 20-megapixel Sony IMX 376K sensor.

The smartphone will be available in China from and retails for 2699 Yuan (Rs 28,000) for the 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage variant, which makes the Xiaomi Mi 8, the most affordable smartphone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

Xiaomi Mi 8 "Explorer Edition" and Mi 8 SE have also been launched, along with the Mi 8 flagship smartphone at the company's annual product unveiling event in Shenzhen.

Explorer edition is the only Mi8 that supports an in display fingerprint reader and comes with transparent back.

If you liked the look of the Xiaomi Mi Band 2, it's nearly certain you'll like the design of the Mi Band 3 as the design is remarkably similar.

MIUI 10 update for Xiaomi phones has been revealed with new software features.

The smartphone and connected device maker is looking to rev up excitement levels with its fans - and potential investors - ahead of the Hong Kong listing that could come as soon as June, as it looks to justify a sky-high expected valuation. All three devices feature a 20MP front-facing camera.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 will be released in China first, but you can bet it will only be a matter of time before it hits the third party sites. This helps the phone to use the traditional L1 frequency used by most smartphones along with the L5 frequency used by the aeronautical industry thereby, helping in more precise navigation.

In terms of storage, Xiaomi Mi 8 comes with 6GB of RAM with storage options of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. The smartphone also features dual-channel Global Positioning System and this is one of the first smartphones to offer this feature, eliminates interference from buildings and reduces signal delays, increasing the accuracy of navigation. But that all changes with the Mi 8, which - design-wise - is pretty clearly focused on the iPhone X.

With the launch of the Mi 8 series, Xiaomi is trying do an Apple in more ways than one.

Sure, there have been plenty of iPhone copycats in the Android world in the past - and Xiaomi's guilty of this with previous models, too - but this is about as similar a design as we've ever seen from a mainstream brand. It will also come with infrared cameras located at the notch for face unlocking, a feature also available on the iPhone X.
