Xiaomi Mi8 to launch May 31
2,799 Yuan, 370 or $440
It looks like the Xiaomi MI7 might end up being called Mi8 - after all. China based companies sometimes dont care about consistency as Huawei went from P9 to P20 as it appeared appropriate.
The Mi8 has the Snapdragon 845, comes with 6GB /64 GB storage in the base version, 6.01 inch screen, 3D face recognition and an in display fingerprint scanner. The spec looks rather great. An invitation has been sent for an event on May 31 in Shenzhen, China.
There will of course be a version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage and even the pricing leaked ahead of the launch. The 6GB/64GB version sells for 2,799 Yuan, 370 or $440. The 8GB/ 28GB storage Mi8 will sell for 3,199 Yuan, 420 or $500.
The Mi 2S will be on sale on May 25th for 3,299 Yuan, 438,70 or $518 for the 6GB/64 GB version while the 8GB/128GB version will start at 3,599 Yuan, 478,60 or $565,30.
Xiaomi is launching retail stores in France and Italy on the same day, with more countries in Europe to follow shortly. Vienna Austria is also getting a store, but Xiaomi declined to give us any official comments about it.
The OnePlus 6 with its 3199 Yuan/519 or $529 price tag looks competitive to Mi2S but it ends up being more expensive than the Xiaomi Mi8.
