Xiaomi recently launched its flagship smartphone of the year — Xiaomi Mi 8. The device packs up to 6GB RAM but now the company is all set to launch a new variant of the Mi 8 that comes with 8GB RAM.
The company has released a poster of Mi 8 on Chinese microblogging platform Weibo which hints at the 8GB RAM model of the Mi 8 flagship phone from Xiaomi. While the Mi 8 doesn’t have 8GB RAM model yet, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition packs 8GB RAM.
The Xiaomi Mi 8, which is the successor of the Mi 6, comes with a 6.21-inch Full HD+ display with 2248 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and a notch on top of the display. The AMOLED display is equipped with features like support for DCI-P3 color gamut, 60000:1 contrast ratio, up to 600nits brightness, HDR support, Eye protection mode, and Always-On Display.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor, running at a maximum frequency of 2.8GHz. It packs up to 6GB RAM and up to 256GB internal storage. The handset receives power from 3,400mAh battery enabled with Quick Charge 4+ fast charging. The phone also comes pre-installed with Android 8.1 Oreo with the company’s own custom MIUI 10 on top.
For photography, the Xiaomi Mi 8 features a wide-angle Sony IMX363 12-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and 1.4micron pixel size and a secondary 12-megapixel S5K3M3 sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 1micron pixel size. The dual cameras offer features like 4-axis optical image stabilization, optical zoom, and dual pixel autofocus.
The notch present at the top of the display comprises a 20-megapixel front-facing camera, proximity sensor, earpiece, infrared lighting and infrared lens. The advanced facial recognition feature has been dubbed as Infrared Face Unlock. The phone also features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for added security.
Connectivity options on the device include dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and 3.5mm audio jack. It is also the world’s first smartphone to come with dual-frequency GPS.
