Let us grab some information about the Mi 8 first.

Mi 8 Killer Camera
Now the new flagship killer mi 8 is amazing and has each and everything in it which a user demands. It has the Apple’s iPhone X type features and looks. But the most amazing feature is the camera of this device. On the back, we get a vertical alignment of dual rear cameras (12MP + 12MP). The camera features 1.4-micron pixels, OIS, dual-pixel autofocus and AI-powered portrait mode. After specifications like these, the camera is surely going to kill all other devices (even oppo and vivo) I believe. During the launch of the mi 8 in China, Xiaomi announced that Mi 8 got a score of 105 DxOmark’s rankings, which is insane. It was even compared with some camera samples of the iPhone X and the Huawei P20 Pro and the mi 8 overtook them very easily. It also has 2x optical zoom. So, in terms of the camera, this phone is disastrous.
Why Mi 8?
Now the question comes that if I have to purchase a flagship then why should go for the mi 8. If I say I am not too much interested in the camera. Then also folks this phone is what you want. It has got Qualcomm’s fastest processor due to which there are no lags or heating issue in the phone. You can use this phone all day long due to its massive 3400mAh battery which will take you for a full day even after heavy use. Now if you say no I’ll use it for more than anyone else, then also we have Quick charge 3.0, which would charge your phone rapidly. Though it does not have the 3.5mm headphone jack it has many other features which would force you to ignore just one drawback.
Now let’s move on to the mi 8’s big brother.
The Mi8 Explorer
So, the mi 8 comes in 5 different variants, the white, gold, blue, black and an explorer edition. The Explorer edition has a transparent back so through which you can see through the inside of the phone. Sounds interesting right? The mi 8 explorer has the same specifications as the normal mi 8 but with just 2 major massive changes. As the back is fully transparent so you wouldn’t want to destroy its beauty by putting in a fingerprint scanner at the rear.
So, guess what did Xiaomi go for; it embedded the fingerprint scanner within the screen. Yes, it’s true we get an in-display fingerprint scanner in the mi 8 explorer edition. The scanner is pressure sensitive, which means you don’t have to press hard to unlock your device. Mi 8 explorer is the first one to get this feature.
The second big thing is 3d face recognition after the iPhone X mi 8 explorer is again the first one to get 3d face recognition due to which face lock becomes more secure and works well even in low light. It comes with 6GB ram and 128GB of storage.
MI 8 SE
Alright, so the youngest of all we have is the mi 8 SE, sounds like the iPhone SE right? But can’t do anything this is the name it got in China. In, India we might get some different name. But as of now, this is it. It has got a pinch of changes;
- Display – 5.88 inch AMOLED Full HD+ Screen
- Camera – Dual rear cameras (12MP + 5MP) with a secondary 20MP shooter
- Processor – Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor
