Xiaomi Mi 8 price leaked ahead of its official announcement

Xiaomi has scheduled a launch event for May 31 in Shenzhen, China, where it is widely tipped to debut a whole lot of products including the flagship  Xiaomi Mi 8.

The device is no stranger to rumors mill as it has been previously rumored to debut with an under-display fingerprint sensor. Now, just days ahead of the big event, a leaked image from China’s Weibo appears to have revealed the expected pricing of the unannounced smartphone.  Cementing previous reports, the Mi 8 will come in two versions based on RAM sizes and storage space. The base variant of the device will come with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, while the second variant will feature 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.

There is no mention of a third variant, and that makes us question the authenticity of some previous reports that suggested the Xiaomi Mi 8 would have a high-end variant with up to 512GB storage. The base variant will retail at CNY2,799 /€370/$440, while the variant with 128GB will go for CNY3,199/ €420/$500.

The In-display fingerprint technology and 3D  face recognition are the trending features now, and that might likely be some of the major highlights of the upcoming device. It is expected to come with a large 6.01-inch OLED edge-to-edge display with the Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with up to 8GB of RAM under the hood.

    also, it’s not expected to go with 6.01 inch and 8gb ram.

    I would be more interested if there was a 5.7 inch variant. Too many 6 inch phones crowding the market at the moment. OEM’s seem to think that there is no where to go but up – bigger is better everyone seems to feel, not me.

      There are rumors of an Mi 7 still floating around — maybe that will be 5.7 inches. If so, that would be the one for me.

      Not everyone. I think it’s completely stupid to carry a 6inch screen in a pocket. More screen real estate, less battery time, less practical, more likely to fall etc. Ridiculous. Will have to change clothes to get larger pockets. Why don’t they buy an ipad mini ffs. When you know most of the buyers will end up taking food pictures or dickpics for tinder… really ridiculous.
