  • Xiaomi Mi 8: Release date, specs, features and price

The Xiaomi Mi 8 starts at ¥2699 (~$420) for the 6GB + 64GB while the beefier Explorer Edition will set you back ¥3699 (around $577).

We're still parsing all the Mi 8 information, but here's what we know so far about the new Xiaomi Mi 8 specifications. Phones like the Vivo X21 and the Huawei Mate RS have offered in-display fingerprint scanners before, but Xiaomi's version is pressure sensitive, which the company calls an industry first. Here, we talk you through the Mi Band 3's features and specs, and reveal its price and release date. But Xiaomi claims the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is the first to actually do it in 3D, which adds more security.

The dual-SIM 4G VoLTE smartphone supports Bluetooth 5.0, dual band Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headphone jack, Type-C USB connector, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, Face Unlock, gyro, proximity, compass and accelerometer among others.

That screen is a 0.78-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 128 x 80, which considering the size of this display and what you'll need from a fitness tracker should look great on your wrist. It has an 18.7:9 aspect ratio and an unmissable notch at the top for a 20-megapixel front facing selfie camera. Powering the Redmi Y2 will be Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 octa-core chipset, the same chip that powers the Redmi Note 5 and a few other Xiaomi smartphones now on sale in India. While the face unlock on the OnePlus 6 is blazing fast, it is not as secure as others.

Up front, there's a 20MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture that uses pixel binning to create larger virtual pixels, for improved photography.

Talks with Europe had "made some progress" but not enough for additional exemptions, he said in a conference call from Paris. Ross said the tariffs are based on national security concerns, which he said was an all encompassing category.

We expect Geekbuying's price to be very slightly higher than that, probably closer to the £30/$40 mark. It has a 5.88-inch Samsung AMOLED full screen display and a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 SoC. Pricing and Availability Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE will be available in China starting 5 and 8 June, starting at RMB 2699 ($421) and RMB 1799 ($281), respectively. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC with either 4/6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage without any micro SD card slot.

The China Developer ROM public beta will be available by late June and it can be accessed by Mi 8, Mi MIX 2S, Mi MIX 2, Mi MIX, Mi 6, Mi 5, Mi Note 2, Redmi S2 and Redmi Note 5.

It is priced at 1,799 yuan (£210).

The new Mi TV 4 is priced at CNY 8,999, which roughly translates to Rs 95,000. The Mi 8 Explorer Edition has design and hardware that's similar to the Mi 8, however, there are some differences.

You can swim with the Xiaomi Mi Band 3, but it's now unclear what stats it'll be able to show you.
