Hopefully, these devices will be available outside China eventually; Xiaomi recently began selling its phones in Europe and is quickly gaining on rival hardware brands. On overall scores, the Mi 8 loses out to the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, the Huawei P20, HTC's new U12+, and Huawei's four-camera P20 Pro.
In terms of additional features, the Mi Band 3 can now display your messages and answer your calls right off its display.
The company has recently expanded into Europe, so we may later see the Mi 8 on sale elsewhere. Other features of the AI-enabled camera include HDR adjustment, facial recognition, EIS, etc. It's an 18.7:9 aspect ratio panel with a great 88.5 percent screen-to-body ratio.
Xiaomi claims the Mi 8Explorer Edition is the first Android device to feature three-dimensional face unlock, using infrared light (the first device ever being the iPhone X, of course).
It's set to become available to buy in China on 5 June, and while it won't officially on sale in the United States or United Kingdom, you'll be able to buy it from the likes of Geekbuying.
The phone uses AI to identify scenes and apply the best settings, as well as for "Studio Lightning" portrait photography, obviously inspired by Apple. It has 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
The Mi 8 will run Xiaomi's custom MIUI 10 skin on top of Android (Xiaomi didn't say which version, but it's likely Oreo), and the new updated skin will feature gesture controls and a driving mode that uses Xiaomi's own Xiao Ai voice assistant. The Explorer Edition will retail for $577, the SE for $281.
The tech behind the face unlocking is also used for Xiaomi's version of Apple's animojis - so if you're looking for an Androidphone that can do Apple's animoji - well, here it is. In China, the special under display fingerprint sensor-equipped 128GB variant - the Vivo X21 UD - has been priced at CNY 3,598 (roughly Rs. 37,100) and its already available to buy in the Chinese market. All of which meant that the layout is probably fake; and that people were being fooled by Xiaomi. The Mi 8 comes in at 2,699 yuan ($421) in China.
There's also an NFC model of the Mi Band 3, which has a higher price tag of 199 yuan, which is still only £24/$31.
