Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition To Hit The Market On July 30th

On May 31st, Xiaomi released the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition in Shenzhen alongside other products. The stunning Xiaomi Mi 8 EE comes with a transparent back shell design, face recognition and pressure sensitive screen to mention a few. At the time of the launch, Xiaomi stated that the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition will be listed at the end of July and it took almost two months for us to get a confirmed date for its first official sales. Xiaomi officially announced that the Xiaomi 8 Explorer Edition will go on its first official sale on July 30th by 7:30 pm. It will be available on Xiaomi Mall with a 3699 Yuan ($545) price tag.

The company did not state the number of units available but we know that Xiaomi initially had a stocking issue with the Xiaomi Mi 8 thus we don’t expect the Mi 8 EE to be any different giving that it is a special edition.

In addition to the Snapdragon 845 processor and a dual-frequency GPS, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition also has three unique highlights. First, it comes with the world’s first pressure-sensitive on-screen fingerprint module. The introduction of a high-sensitivity pressure sensor means that the finger does not need to stay too much on the screen when unlocking. With a gentle press on the screen, you achieve a clear fingerprint image, with vibration feedback, so that the unlocking experience is smooth.

Thirdly, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition is the first Android phone that supports “Face ID” . Unlike the iPhone’s speckle structure light scheme, the coded structured light scheme uses 33,000 coded dot matrix projected by a dot matrix projector. It creates a millimeter-level 3D facial model that can be cracked down to a millionth of a probability.
