The Mi 8 is set to hit India next month
Xiaomi released the Mi 8 devices a long while ago. The Indian market may be Xiaomi's biggest sphere of influence, but the company usually takes its time in preparing devices for a launch in that region, and the Mi 8 is no different, as it’s only just about to make its way over to India. The Mi A2 was released in India two weeks ago, and the Mi 8 will follow suit in style, although we expect it to be quite annoying for Xiaomi fans in India, since the device has been on sale in China since May.
There’s not much novel about the Mi 8. It sports a 6.21-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, a 12 MP + 12 MP dual rear camera setup, a 20 MP selfie shooter, a 3400 mAh battery, and up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Most notable is the fact that it’s quite obviously inspired by the iPhone X, perhaps even to obnoxious levels.
The Mi 8 is expected to be launched with an MSRP under INR 30,000 (US$430), about par considering the variant with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage can be ordered on Aliexpress right now for about US$390. There are no exact dates right now but reputable sources have it penned down for a mid-September launch.
