March 31 was the confirmed launch date of Xiaomi Mi 8 which is not far now but a new picture has surfaced, once again confirming it to be iPhone X look alike. The rumoured handset is now leaked in its retail packaging showcasing the front wallpaper, the famous notched screen and vertically aligned dual-rear camera setup.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Leaked
The Chinese brand has been following Apple’s design in almost all of its products and it’s even been called the Apple of China. Once again, the company has repeated it with the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 8.
The rear part looks almost similar to the iPhone X, featuring a dual-camera setup on the rear side in a vertical alignment having LED flash at the centre of the two.
The screen is very 2018. Yes, it’s Notched! The notch is of similar size as of iPhone X, hinting towards presence of similar set of hardware to offer secured facial unlock feature. That means, 3D facial recognition feature is to be present for sure.
Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 SoC will be handling the CPU department with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage. MiUI 10 will be handling the software department which will be the skinned version of Android 8.1 Oreo OS.
$470 is going to be the price of Xiaomi Mi 8 which roughly converts to 32k INR. I’m sure Xiaomi will make the handset available for purchase in the first week of June 2018.
