The Xiaomi Mi 8 is all set to be unveiled tomorrow along with a bunch of other products. The most recent leak shows the alleged flagship in a couple of shoddy photos, confirming some previous allegations and rumours.
The display up front has a notch that we already know will be a part of the Mi 8. The dual camera setup sits on the back and so does the fingerprint scanner. What’s intriguing is the bump in the case on the left side of the phone. It looks like a bump for a physical button. The purpose of this button is not known. None of the previous reports speak of any such button. It might be present to either act as a dedicated AI assistant or a customizable shortcut button. There is a chance that this might be the dedicated camera button although the placement seems a bit off.
