To mark its 8th years of existence, the Chinese electronics and software company, Xiaomi, will reportedly launch a befitting smartphone, and as per latest rumblings, that phone will be made official in few days time. While we are not sure what the Chinese company might call its 8thAnniversary phone, reports have it that the company might have decided to scrap the long-rumored Xiaomi Mi 7 for the Xiaomi Mi 8.
Recently, a leaked video of the alleged Mi 8 surfaced on the web with a focus on the in-display fingerprint sensor. On that video, a user was seen unlocking the Mi 8 with his fingerprint, right on the display. While we expect the device to debut at the May end event, the device Now has popped up on the 3C Certification Site as well as on the FCC website.
