Xiaomi Mi 8 on DxOMark: joining the big leagues

Xiaomi Mi8 SE

Xiaomi has taken the wrappers of the Mi Band 3 at its event in Shenzen, China where it also unveiled the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer Edition, all of which run on the latest MIUI 10 interface.

After a series of flagship smartphone launches Xiaomi enters the scene with the Mi 8. There is no official news on when the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 will be arriving to the Malaysian market as well as the local price for it.

While it hasn't been officially confirmed, Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi S2 as the Redmi Y2 in India. According to an official MIUI forum post, Xiaomi will release a closed beta of MIUI 10 China Developer ROM for select smartphones starting June 1.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 came out around the world after a while of being on sale in China, so we have high hopes it'll come to the US, UK and Australia soon as the company has done that in the past. The 6/128 GB is CNY2,999, while the most expensive 6/256 GB version is CNY3,299.

In another Apple-like move, Xiaomi opted to hop straight from last year's Mi 6 to the Mi 8 to mark its eighth anniversary in the smartphone business.

Xiaomi Mi 8 features a6.21-inch AMOLEDdisplay, full HD+resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

U.S. to slap restrictions on some Chinese investments
Under that program, China aims to take a leading role in areas such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and electric cars. These steps include a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion in Chinese imports, many of which fall in the technology industry.

The exact dimensions of the tracker are 17.9 x 46.9 x 12mm and it should be light on your wrist as it only weighs 20g.

It has a larger OLED display than the Mi Band 2 did, at 0.78in compared with the 0.42in of its predecessor, and comes in black, orange or blue. The fitness tracker would also be resistant to dust and water to up to 50 meters, meaning the device could well be used for swimming.

You may be able to use NFC to make payments, but it's not now clear how that would work in other markets outside China. Xiaomi claims that it will offer you around 20 days of battery life on a single charge. The VR headset provides immersive sound experience without the need to bring separate audio device and features a 3.5mm headphone jack so you can connect your own headset while experiencing VR content. It also offers a heart rate monitor.

That works for running, cycling and walking too, but there's no connected Global Positioning System on this tracker so it won't be able to track your location or give you a totally accurate distance measurement.

The Mi Band 2 successor is another one of the additions which now comes in two new variants. The teaser page also lists some of the key features of the upcoming smartphone. It is ahead of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S which received a score of 97. It will also be able to show you weather info, notifications, caller ID, and so on. Xiomi has also announced a slim Mi 8 SE, designed for those who favor a smaller smartphone.
