Xiaomi Mi 8 takes a price-cut as another major sale approaches

Xiaomi Mi 8

November is a sales season worldwide and if there is a good time to make a purchase, its got to be November. Pre-Double eleven, Double eleven, Post-Double eleven, Pre-Black Friday, Black Friday, and Post-Black Friday are some of the special sales that covers the entire November.  Manufacturers, as well as on-line stores globally, are cautious of these sales and if you don’t give a price cut, you will probably not make any sales. After a very successful 11/11 sales, Xiaomi has now reduced the price of the 8GB+128GB version of Xiaomi Mi 8. The Xiaomi Mi 8 8GB+128GB version price was reduced by 400 Yuan ($58) and it is currently selling for 2899 yuan ($418) at the Xiaomi Mall.

This smartphone is equipped with a notched 6.21-inch Samsung AMOLED display. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor while its battery capacity is 3400 mAh. In the camera department, it uses the same dual-camera module as Xiaomi MIX 2S. It adopts a 12MP wide-angle + 12MP telephoto sensors on the rear. The main lens is the Sony IMX363, which supports Dual DP dual-core focusing and four-axis optical anti-shake. On DxOMark, this smartphone rear camera scored 105 points which is 4 points higher than iPhone X’s 101 points. However, we have a 20MP selfie shooter. In addition, the Mi 8 is also the world’s first smartphone that supports dual-frequency GPS positioning. It supports L1+L5 dual-frequency positioning, which can effectively solve the problem of inaccurate positioning of single-frequency mobile phones.

More importantly, Xiaomi Mi 8 can now be upgraded with the handheld night scene feature which was first introduced with the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3. The principle is that when the shutter is pressed, the camera will take 8 photos with different exposure schemes at the same time. The key features of each image will be selected to get the final “perfect” image. In addition, the first development system which adds 960 fps super slow-motion videos to Xiaomi Mi 8 is also available.

      Lightinthebox was frozen out during the 11.11 sales. The 128GB model sold for $389.99 between 10th & 13th on Gearbest…so technically, Lightinthebox is just giving out reserved but unsold units from 11.11 sales. Now, it’s selling for $379.99
