After the launch of the Mi8 flagship by the Chinese smart-phone maker Xiaomi, a new rumour surfaced up that Mi8se will be launched in India, re branded as Mi8i. And will be available in India soon with a price tag of 18-20K.
This new Xiaomi smart-phone will be available in 4 colours Black/Grey, Gold, Blue and Red. With aluminium frame and glass back which will give it a classy look.
It is supposed to possess a 5.88 inch FHD super amoled screen for better experience. The resolutions would be 2248*1080p.
Mi8i will be powered by Snapdragon 710 processor. It will run on MIUI 10 based Android 8.1 (Oreo) OS and it will be supported by 2.2GHz processor.
It will come with a dual camera option at the back 12MP+5MP. The 5MP sensor is attached for the depth sensing which will enhance the photography experience. It also features gyro-EIS and comes with dual pixel phase detection auto-focus. Whereas the selfie camera will be of 20MP provided with AI-portrait support.
This device will be available in two different variants 4GB and 6GB RAM. But the storage will be same 64GB.
Fuelling the device is a 3120Mah non-removable battery providing a long lasting backup. It will also support quick charging 3.0 features. Type-C USB will be used for Mi8i replacing the micro USB trend.
Mi8i will be a dual SIM (4G+4G) smart-phone consisting all the basic connectivity features (such as WIFI 802.11, Bluetooth 5.0) and sensors (like Proximity, Gyro). It will also have a rear mounted finger print unlocking option. But it is lacking the IR face unlock feature.
Mi8i also lacks behind when it comes to storage capacity, it only provides 64GB and no other option is available. This smart-phone is also lacking a 3.5mm jack.
With all these drawbacks and a high pricing of 18-20K it would be worth to spectate how the Mi8i will perform in the Indian markets.
