We are just a few days away from Xiaomi official unveiling of new flagship device Mi 8 at a launch event in China on May 31. We have already seen alleged real images of the upcoming device including an alleged hands-on video & press render. Apart from these, we also have some leaks suggesting the price of base variant of Mi 8 starting at 2,999 Yuan. The latest leak came in the form of an alleged poster of the device which confirmed the notch at top of the display and the dual rear camera module of the phone.
Androidpure has accessed some case renders and renders of screen protector of Xiaomi Mi 8 which confirm some of the earlier rumours including the notch at top of the display and dual camera module. These case renders along with renders of screen protector reveal some additional information, first being there is no 3.5mm audio jack (which is understandable as Mi 7 only came with a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter as no 3.5mm audio jack was present) and second being, there is no fingerprint sensor at the rear. The absence of fingerprint sensor at rear indicate that Xiaomi Mi 8 may include the in-screen fingerprint sensor embedded under the display itself. You can also see the narrow bezels at bottom of the display.
Latest rumours indicate that Mi 8 sports a 6.2-inch Full HD (1080×2280) 19:9 display (Earlier reports suggested 6.01-inch display) powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with 6GB / 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage runningMIUI 10. In terms of camera, it features a dual camera module consisting of 20MP (f/1.7) and 16MP f/2.0 sensors, while on the front a 16MP f/2.0 shooter is there. It measures 7.8mm in thickness and weighs ~172g and is backed by a 3,300 mAh battery.
In terms of pricing, it is rumoured to be priced at CNY2,799 (around €370/$440) for the 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage variant while the high-end version with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage for CNY3,199 or about €420/$500.
