Xiaomi Mi 8 SE with Snapdragon 710 SoC & 20MP Selfie Camera Launched

Xiaomi's mega launch event took place in Shenzen, China where the company launched the Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Mi 8 SE, MIUI 10, Mi Band 3, a standalone VR headset, and a 75-inch Mi TV 4.

There's also a special edition of the Mi 8 called the Explorer Edition, which bumps up the RAM and storage to 8GB and 128GB respectively and adds an in-display fingerprint sensor as well as something Xiaomi calls 3D face unlock.

The Mi 8 is also Xiaomi's first phone to feature dual-frequency Global Positioning System, which uses a combination of two satellite frequencies instead of one to compute its position.

Under-the-hood, it is said to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage, AI-powered dual camera and a full day's battery.

Rumours are rife that the company might unveil a low-end model Mi 8 SE with watered down specifications. It is worth noting that the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is the first-ever smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm's new mid-range chipset.

Xiaomi unveiled Mi 8 SE at the annual launch event held in Shenzhen, China on May 31.

In addition to the usual step tracking features you'd expect, the Mi Band 3 can also show messages, caller ID, the weather forecast, alarms and more. Up until a few days ago, there was hardly any chatter of Xiaomi launching two version of the Mi 8.

Xiaomi MIUI 10 is the new OS from the company.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition comes with a price tag of CNY 3,699 (roughly Rs. 39,000).

Still down four points with almost seven minutes left in the game, Tatum made a decision to take things into his own hands. I think about the teams that I've played over this run and the players that I've played over this run, slightly.

The Mi Band 3 while still retaining the looks of its predecessor is designed in such a way that the tracker unit doesn't slip away from the watch band, which was being criticized about in the Mi Band 2.

The phone in the front is the Mi 8 SE. The smartphone has a 20 MP front-facing selfie camera which also supports face unlock using the selfie camera. It is to be seen, however, how the Snapdragon 710 performs in the real world since no other smartphone has been launched with this SoC before.

On the imaging front, the Mi 8 sports a vertical orientation of dual 12 MP cameras with an LED flash in the middle.

Another pretty major feature that MIUI 10 is set to introduce is a dedicated portrait modes, which would reportedly be available on all eligible single- and dual-lens phones.

"The Mi 8 SE is the third "budget" offering in the line up, with the primary advantage to consumers coming in the form of an overall smaller form factor, sporting a 5.88" Samsung-made AMOLED screen.

For security, OnePlus 6 comes with face unlock along with a rear fingerprint sensor.

We expect Geekbuying's price to be very slightly higher than that, probably closer to the £30/$40 mark.

It is priced at 1,799 yuan (£210).
