Xiaomi Launched Mi Band For $26

Xiaomi Mi 8 SE

With its Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Xiaomi is showing the world that both can be done, blazing a trail for multimodal biometric authentication that still allows for full-size displays on smartphones.

In an event in Shenzhen in front of a packed-out stadium, Xiaomi's founder and CEO Lei Jun presented the flagship Mi 8, an anniversary smartphone strikingly similar to Apple's iPhone X, Reuters reports. We have already talked about the Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE in the previous articles but the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is probably one of the best looking phones from the company.

Xiaomi claims the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is the first Android device to feature three-dimensional face unlock, using infrared light (the first device ever being the iPhone X, of course). The latest version also comes with call answering capabilities.

12MP with Sony IMX363 sensor, f/1.8 aperture, 1.4 micron pixels, 4 axis OIS, dual pixel autofocus, 4K video recording, AI portraits, AI scene detection and secondary 12MP rear camera with Samsung S5K3M3 sensor, f/2.4 aperture, 1.0 micron pixels and 2X zoom. The front camera got a 16-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f / 2.0. It will also support portrait mode for single camera phones.

Stocks rebound as Italian risk fades slightly
Two-year bond yields fell below 1% in intraday trading, and Italian bank stocks have recovered some of their recent losses. The center-right coalition, including Lega, got 37 percent, while the Democratic Party won about 20 percent of the vote.

Meanwhile the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is due to be launched later, although Xiaomi has so far not announced an exact release date.

It's set to become available to buy in China on 5 June, and while it won't officially on sale in the United States or UK, you'll be able to buy it from the likes of Geekbuying. This phone is powered by 2.8GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 GPU. And for what you get with the phone, you can't really beat the value.

The Mi 8 doesn't just come with the most top notch hardware specs, it is also the first Xiaomi flagship to come fitted with an AMOLED panel measuring 6.21-inches and produces a FHD+ resolution.

The phone is powered by a 3400 mAh battery. The Snapdragon 710 is aimed to provide flagship features to devices but with a smaller price tag so the Mi 8 SE is considerably cheaper as opposed to the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition, as you'll soon find out if you read the pricing differences below.
