Xiaomi Refutes Claim That See-Through Mi 8 Explorer Edition Has Fake Components

Xiaomi Mi 8 SE

Aside from the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, and the Mi 8 Explorer EditionXiaomi today announced the newest variation of its MIUI software, which will arrive on nearly all devices the company has unveiled in the past four years.

Along with the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition smartphones, the company also launched Mi 8 SE smartphone today at its annual launch event.

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition also comes with a 3D face unlock feature, which according to Xiaomi uses "advanced structured light technology" to accurately measure your facial details. Xiaomi's Mi 8 SE will ship slightly ahead of the standard model, on June 5 starting at 1799 RMB (~$280).

The battery inside the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is a 110mAh cell, which the company claims will last around 20 days from a single charge. It is worth noting that the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is the first-ever smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm's new mid-range chipset. The Xiaomi Mi 8 is successor to the Mi 6 that was launched previous year.

The Chinese tech titan announced a trio of new phones on Thursday, including the new Mi 8. Xiaomi's Mi 8 competes directly against the hot picks in the flagship department - OnePlus 6 and Honor 10.

The new MIUI 10 brings a lot of design changes in the latest ROM which seems to be inspired from the latest Android P update.

A Xiaomi spokesperson declined to comment when we asked if the company wanted to talk about the Mi 8's similarity to the iPhone X. It houses a 20-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture.

Other than that, the SE is every bit the same phone as the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer edition, with the same software, cameras, and dual-frequency Global Positioning System. Let's see what we can gleam from the info we have so far! Meanwhile the rear takes advantage of a dual-12 megapixel camera setup.

For users who prefer a smaller handset and are willing to sacrifice some processing performance, the Mi 8 uses a whittled down 5.88-inch display with a recently introduced Snapdragon 710 SoC. The Explorer version even boasts 3D face unlock and a pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint technology. At the heart of the handset is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC alongside 6GB of RAM and your choice of 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage. The Explorer Edition will retail for $577, the SE for $281.

We don't know what SE stands for and Xiaomi probably doesn't know either.

The Mi 8 carries a price tag of CNY 2,699 (approximately Rs 28,600) for the 6GB RAM/64GB variant, CNY 2,999 (approximately Rs 31,600) for the 6GB/128GB variant, and CNY 3,299 (approximately Rs 34,800) for the 6GB RAM/256GB variant.

The smartphone will be available with 4/6 GB RAM options along with 64 GB storage for the price of 1799 and 1999 Yuan, respectively.
