Xiaomi is known for affordable phones, and the Mi 8 is no exception: It will retail for around $421 in China (but there's no word on the price in other markets, including the U.S.) yet. Both the smartphones sport on board storage of 128GB. The device will land in China on June 5th and, from the looks of it, those who can't afford the $1,000 iPhone X might want to consider this device.

Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is back with its all-new flagship smartphone. In comparison, the Mi 8 comes with the same amount of RAM, but it is available in the 64, 128 and 256GB storage models.

The second in the family is the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition.

The other device is the budget-oriented Mi 8 SE. The edge-to-edge screen still has room for improvement as there are some noticeable bezels, but overall, the Mi 8 certainly reminds you of the iPhone X, especially from the front.

On the other hand, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition comes in one variant of 8GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB storage with see through back panel. All three displays are protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top. It's a real shame they likely won't hit the US. It's also one of the first firms to use an in-display fingerprint sensor. The 12MP telephoto lens has a f/2.4 aperture. The hardware specifications are somewhat similar, but things go much deeper than that, and you'll guys get to know everything in our specifications, features and pricing comparison. The authoritative site DxOMark estimated the photo and video capabilities of the flagship in 99 points - the smartphone overtook Pixel 2 and the iPhone X. The poster further reveals that the front camera of the smartphone will be paired with an LED selfie light, meaning the Redmi Y2/S2 will be capable of capturing detailed and clear selfies in low-light situations.

The smartphone runs MIUI 10, which is based on Android Oreo and to power SoC there's a 3400 mAh battery. The device can be upgraded to MIUI 10. It is packed with 3000mAh battery with fast charge. The standard Mi 8 does away with this stylistic choice for a solid blue, white and black color scheme. This version has the same specs, but also includes a futuristic in-display fingerprint sensor that, unlike the Vivo X21's in display fingerprint scanner, actually registers pressure sensitivity. What are you getting for your money?
