However, as a flagship product, one of the main highlight of Xiaomi Mi 8 is its camera. Xiaomi Mi 8 uses the same rear camera module as the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S.

It supports Dual PD, dual-focus and the telephoto lens aperture is F/2.4. DxOMark rated Xiaomi Mi 8 rear camera very highly as it scored 105 points which is 4 points higher than iPhone X.

Another highlight of Xiaomi Mi 8 is its dual-frequency GPS which has attracted the attention of the world leaders in GPS technology. It is the world’s first smartphone equipped with dual-frequency GPS. It supports dual-frequency positioning using the L1 band of 1575.42 MHz and the L5 band of 1176.45 MHz, which can effectively avoid the problem of inaccurate measurements. Xiaomi Mi 8 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. It is equipped with a 6.21 inches Samsung OLED screen and its lights are kept on by a 3400mAh battery. Click HERE for more.

      From my search, this product is currently out of stock on mi.com and Xiaomi Youpin (two places I know you can get this at the launch price). Sales to commence on 15th June. These stores seem not to ship outside China.

      Thank you so much, I guess I’ll have to wait a bit longer to get it at gearbest or AliExpress for a good price
