If you’re looking for a new phone, then these past few weeks must have been a headache. All the manufacturers seems to have the same thing in mind: your holiday money. As such, devices have been popping up left and right. Xiaomi is no exception. Hot on the heels of their Mi Mix 3 launch, we’ve finally gotten word on local availability for the Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite.
The Mi 8 Lite is a Snapdragon 660-powered device with Qualcomm’s Artificial Intelligence Engine that makes it an ace at photography and gaming. A front-facing Sony IMX576 sensor gives you more detail than ever before, and AI Dual rear cameras with the Sony IMX363 lets you capture superb snapshots with less noise.
The Mi 8 Pro on the other hand lives up to the “Pro” moniker. Its pressure-sensitive under-display fingerprint scanner saves power by only pinging the display for fingerprint information once it senses an actual screen press. It packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and Adreno 630 for unparalleled performance, and 8 GB of RAM plus 128 GB of storage, so you’re never left hanging.
