Mi 8, MIUI 10 and 5 other products Xiaomi launched today

Xiaomi Mi8 SE

The Chinese company today unveiled its new Mi 8 smartphone series powered by MIUI 10, plus the new and ultra-affordable Mi Band 3.

Leaked images have indicated that Mi 8 will sport a blend of metal-and-glass cover on the back and a 6.01-inch FullView display with a notch on the top with Apple iPhone X-like 3D face scanner to enable FaceID and Animoji features.

The manufacturer provided less detail about the smaller Mi 8 SE.

The Mi Band 3 will come with an improved battery that will last you up to 20 days on a single charge. Xiaomi Mi 8 also offers "Dual GPS" which the company says gives more accurate location by eliminating radio disturbances from buildings.

Xiaomi has announced a trio of phones under the Mi 8 name.

Having said all that, if you look past the brazen plagiarism, the Mi 8 is, as usual with Xiaomi devices, a really good deal.

In result of this war, 15 lac people have permanent disabilities and eight six thousand people have lost their limbs. Terrorists attacked Syrian and Russian troops, and the latter was forced to respond, according to the MoD.

Memorial Day weekend gas prices highest in four years
The American cities that have seen the steepest price increases at the pump are also speckled across the Midwest. As average gas prices nationally edged toward $ 3 a gallon on Friday, there was some mitigating news.

Woman Claims Alexa Recorded Private Conversation and Sent it to People
Amazon told KIRO that it "takes privacy very seriously" and is investigating what it called an "extremely rare occurrence ". She stated that the company representative did not answer why Alexa recorded her conversation, or if it is a common issue.

It has a larger OLED display than the Mi Band 2 did, at 0.78in compared with the 0.42in of its predecessor, and comes in black, orange or blue.

Vivo X21 takes a slight lead with a 3200mAh battery, but the Xiaomi Mi 8 premium variant does not fall behind with its 3000mAh battery.

DxOMark released its extensive camera review of the fresh Xiaomi Mi 8 flagship. We reported about the purported specs of the Mi 8 and a possible Mi 8 SE variant yesterday and most of that info has come true. The aspect ratio is 18.7:9, which is the same as the Mi 8. There will also be the Mi 8 SE which will be a cheaper version of the Mi 8. However, this comparison isn't based on prolonged usage of the two smartphones, so we can not ascertain true sustainability of any of them. For snapping photos, there are two cameras on the backside, including a 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 shooter with an f/1.8 aperture and a 12-megapixel Samsung S5K3m3 telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture. Powering the television is a 64-bit ARM-A53 quad-core processor, which is accompanied with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The smartphone has a glass build, comes with a Super AMOLED display with a notch, is powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset and packs AI dual cameras. The standard Mi 8 has a face unlock feature as well, but it misses out on the 3D tech. In China, the special under display fingerprint sensor-equipped 128GB variant - the Vivo X21 UD - has been priced at CNY 3,598 (roughly Rs. 37,100) and its already available to buy in the Chinese market. Older members of the Mi family lack microSD card slots, and Xiaomi didn't mention one, so buyers should probably pick their storage option with an eye toward the future.

The Mi 8 will be available on June and start at 2,699 yuan (about $421) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB of storage.

It is priced at 1,799 yuan (£210).
