Xiaomi Mi8

Xiaomi also announced three new smartphones during the Shenzhen event which are the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer Edition. The base model of Xiaomi Mi 8 is priced at CNY 2,999 which roughly translates to Rs 31,600. It has similar specs to the regular Mi 8 but a translucent rear, 3D face sensing IR sensor in the notch at the front and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE will go on sale in China June 5 and June 8 respectively.

Xiaomi Mi 8 is fuelled by a 4,000mAh battery, while OnePlus 6 uses a 3,300mAh battery, and Honor 10 has a 3,400mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 is awfully familiar. The Xiaomi Mi 8 is successor to the Mi 6 that was launched past year.

But the characteristic notch is now proliferating to new devices shipping soon or on their way, including the Mi 8.

When it comes to video recording, the Xiaomi Mi 8 delivers generally low levels of noise, vivid and pleasant-looking color, good focus tracking, super-fast and accurate autofocus, as well as, a wide dynamic range.

For perspective, the 55-inch Xiaomi Mi TV 4, which was launched in India earlier this year, is priced at Rs 39,999.

There's also MIUI 10 - the latest version of Xiaomi's Android skin - to look forward to, though numerous new features this update will bring are intended for users in China.

Everything you could ever want in playoff basketball! "That's a dirty shot", Smart said of Smith's play after the game. Smith was assessed a flagrant-one foul for his shove, and then a technical for shoving and jawing with Marcus Smart .

Xiaomi showed us a quick demo of this technology during the launch event today in Shenzhen, China, where a auto with completely blacked out windows is driven through a closed path with the driver using nothing, but just Xiaomi's Mi 8 smartphone with dual Global Positioning System receivers to navigate his way, and still manages to make sure the vehicle is within the stipulated bounds. Other features of the AI-enabled camera include HDR adjustment, facial recognition, EIS, etc. MIUI 10 will support 16:9, 18:9 and 19:9 aspect ratios and make use of the taller displays with newer gestures. There will also be the Mi 8 SE which will be a cheaper version of the Mi 8. Now instead of showing the recent apps like a deck of cards, the MIUI 10 will show them side by side, making it possible for the users to see as much as six recent apps in a single view.

On a more unique note, the device is one of the first in the world to ship with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 845 chipset which gives it some pzazz and (likely impressive) speed.

There's also a 12-megapixel dual camera setup on the back, with iPhone X-style AI-powered portrait mode and "Studio Lighting" effects.

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

It comes in 4GB and 6GB RAM variant with 64GB of internal storage. The Mi 8 Explorer Edition comes with 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage only.

"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.

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