Earlier today, on August 8, Xiaomi Mall officially released the poster of a new Xiaomi Mi8, with a phrase of the big inside the master’, directly hinting that the 8GB variant of the annual flagship of Xiaomi is on the way. At present, the Xiaomi Mi 8 only provides a 6GB memory version. Of course, there is the Mi 8 Explorer Edition with an 8GB of RAM, but it’s not the same as the ordinary Mi 8. Actually, the 8GB version has also obtained the network access license previously. As for now, the phone is already available for purchase at a price tag of 3299 yuan ($482).
However, the rest of the features remain the same. This simply means the 8GB variant of the Xiaomi Mi 8 uses a quad-curved glass body + a 7-series aluminum middle frame design. It is packed with the Samsung’s 6.21-inch AMOLED wide color gamut full-screen. Actually, the bangs screen of the Mi 8 is one of the highlighted features. It also comes with a resolution of 2248×1080, an aspect ratio of 18.7:9, a screen share of 86.68%, a contrast ratio of 60000:1, a high brightness of 600nit, a sunscreen, an eye protection mode, a step-less color temperature adjustment, etc. The Xiaomi Mi 8 features a Snapdragon 845 AIE chip. There is a 3400mAh battery supporting Quick Charge 4.0+.
Our protagonist also sports a 12MP+12MP dual-camera with an aperture of f/1.8, 1.4-micron large pixels, dual-core focus, four-axis image stabilization, AI scene recognition supporting up to 206 kinds of unique AI studio lighting effects, AI short video clips support, and many more. All these features come our way from the Sony IMX363 sensor. That’s why it is capable of scoring up to 105 points at DxOMark. The front-facing camera uses a 20MP sensor, which is the world’s first camera supporting AI micro plastic beauty. It also supports infrared unlocking. Thus the phone can identify your face in a completely dark environment.
At last, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is the world’s first dual-frequency dual GPS phone. To solve all the problems related to the GPS positioning and navigation errors, the Mi 8 supports L1+L5 dual-frequency dual-precision positioning. Generally, there are two factors affecting the accurate positioning – the ionosphere delay (1) and the reflection of buildings (2). Our protagonist uses the L1+L5 dual-frequency dual-channel positioning, which can effectively correct the ionosphere delay. At the same time, the error of the L1 band is 300 meters, while it is 30 meters for the L5. The latter is 10 times more accurate than L1, which effectively solves the reflection interference of urban buildings.
