TODO alt text

Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus, Xiaomi Mi Max, Xiaomi Mi 4, Xiaomi Mi Max Prime, Xiaomi Redmi 5A, Xiaomi Redmi 4, Xiaomi Redmi 4A, Xiaomi Redmi 4x, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Qualcomm version, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 MediaTek version, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X, Xiaomi Mi Note 3, Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus and Xiaomi Redmi Pro.

As you can see above, the design of the phone features a clear glass element that shows you the internals of the device.

There are red accents to the design around the camera and on the power button too.

The phone features a 6.21-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with screen resolution of 2248 x 1080 pixels. There's one storage version at 128GB, and it's now unclear if you'll be able to use microSD cards with the phone. It also has a 13MP rear camera that includes phase detection autofocus and a 5MP front-facing selfie camera.

The battery is 3,000mAh, which is less than that on the OnePlus 6T.

Xiaomi is rolling out MIUI 10 stable update to more than 20 smartphones.

No Agreement on Digital Tax
The plan is similar to the UK's recent proposal to put into place a 2 percent digital services tax in 2020 if no OECD solution materialises.

The star attraction is the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro will be priced at £499 in Blighty and will also be available to pick up via Three priced from £19 on a £22 per month contract. The company has also brought the Mi 8 to the United Kingdom too, and that offers similar spec but there are a couple of missing features as it doesn't include the in-display fingerprint scanner. The budget fitness tracker, which sold one million units in 17 days in China earlier this year, goes on sale on 9 November for just £26.99.

Pre-orders for the Redmi 6A from Three start tomorrow for delivery on November 21.

There's also an NFC model with contactless payments, though having spoken to Xiaomi representatives, there's no news on when that model will come to the UK.It's unlikely to be 2018 from the sounds of it.

Those include a toothbrush, smart scales, a kettle and more. The Beijing OEM also reaffirmed its plans to open the first Mi store in the region in London's enormous Westfield shopping center on November 18.
