The downside is that like most limited edition Xiaomi phones, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is unlikely to make its way outside of China.

For security this phone has fingerprint sensor on the back and infrared face unlock feature.

The Xiaomi Mi 8, which incidentally skips the 7 in favor of the number 8 to mark the company's eighth year, shares a similar notch design and vertical rear cameras. The phone is made up of an aluminum frame form the 7000 series that will be fitted between the slimmed width of the phone. We are yet to see when the UI comes to Xiaomi smartphone users in India. The device received a transparent back and the characteristics of Mi 8. No launch date has been announced for the Explorer Edition. There's a regular fingerprint sensor nested at the back of the device, and that's perfectly fine. This is the first smartphone from stable of Xiaomi which comes with Notch display.

Jun confirmed that the novelty will receive the aspect ratio of 18:9. Up front is a 20-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, also with its own set of AI tricks. It is the first smartphone to adopt dual-frequency Global Positioning System, supporting both L1 and L5 bands, for more accurate navigation. The chipset of the devices are coupled with Octa-core 4x2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 385 Silver processor.

One argument is that the Snapdragon 845 processor can't be in that position. Is this your new phone? It sports a 5.88-inch FHD+ OLED display. The rear comes with the features like 2x Zoom dual pixel phase detection autofocus and has a dual LED flash. However, the brand has revealed that it will be a selfie-centric smartphone with a 16-megapixel artificial intelligence-powered camera.
