Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro Announced; Essentially Mi 8 Explorer Without Translucent Skin

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition in twilight gold

It is essentially the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, just without the translucent skin, and a 6GB RAM option. This is an AMOLED panel from Samsung, and it comes with our beloved Always-On Display feature.

After waiting for so long, finally, Xiaomi is going to launch Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth/Lite, while Meizu is coming to launch the Meizu M16X.

The Mi 8 Youth Edition is shod by a 6.26-inch LCD display at the front and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE SoC.

The Mi 8 Lite comes in Aurora Blue, Sunset Gold and Midnight Black colours and is available for order from today. In the new Pro model, Xiaomi has only repositioned the fingerprint scanner from the back of the phone to the front - under the display, just like the Mi 8's Explorer Edition. The Mi 8 Youth is the most affordable smartphone in the Mi 8 series. While the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition comes in different colour options, the Mi 8 In-Display Fingerprint edition comes in a single Gold colour option, but with different gradients on the rear side. In the camera department, the phone sports a 12MP+5MP dual rear camera setup coupled with f/1.8 aperture, PDAF and AI capabilities.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro Announced; Essentially Mi 8 Explorer Without Translucent Skin

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition announced in May comes with 3D Face Unlock, but the Mi 8 Pro announced today doesn't.

Battery: The Mi 8 Lite has a 3,350mAh battery and supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0.

The device boots Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 9.6 out of the box, but expected to receive MIUI 10 update very soon. The fingerprint scanner on this variant is embedded inside the display, and it's rated to be 29% faster than the one we saw on the Mi 8 Explorer Edition.

Read: Is there a thing like too many Redmi phones? There's also a variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage that will be available for RMB 1,699 (roughly Rs 18,024). The smartphone is priced at 3,199 yuan (about Rs 34,000) for the 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage variant while the 8GB RAM/128GB internal storage variant will sell for 3,599 yuan (about Rs 38,000).
