The Xiaomi Mi 8, flagship of the Xiaomi brand can be found at a more tempting price and we find it in Aliexpress.com for only $399.98 (€351.27) in its global version, its minimum price. A smartphone with a very careful design with an excellent price-quality ratio that leaves in evidence some reference terminals of other well-known brands.
Processor, RAM and storage
Xiaomi Mi 8 includes as engine the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, an Octa Core manufactured in 10nm with Kyro processors from Qualcomm itself and an Adreno 630 GPU, of course the specific IA functions can not be missing in this system. In this offer we have 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64 GB UFS storage memory, so it seems we will not have a microSD card reader integrated with which we will have to choose wisely the storage size that interests us.
Screen and other features
The screen of the Xiaomi Mi 8 is a 6.21-inch AMOLED with notch, with a resolution of 2248 x 1080 pixels that gives an aspect ratio of 18.7:9 and features Gorilla Glass protection. The frames of the perimeter are steel and the back is metallic, on the screen we have integrated fingerprint reader for unlocking although there is also a version with transparent back cover called Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition that does not have this sensor.
At the top under the notch we have the 20MP camera with aperture of f/2.0 with bokeh effect and video capture up to 1080p resolution. We also have proximity sensor, integrated earphone, infrared light and infrared lens for unlocking with Face ID in 3D. As we see a rather large notch that leaves little room for notifications.
In the back we have two cameras with Sony and Samsung sensors of 12 MP, one with aperture of f/1.8 and another of f/2.4 for optical zoom. We also have a 3300 mAh battery with fast charge, Wi-Fi ac Dual Band, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, LTE Cat.4 modem with support for Dual SIM. As for connectors we have a USB Type-C port and we do not have an audio jack. The operating system is MIUI 10 with all its innovations that is based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
