Did Xiaomi made a transparent iPhone knock-off that isn’t actually transparent?

Xiaomi went the extra mile with its Mi 8 Explorer Edition by showing alleged real parts on the logic board, and such fine details add a lot to this look.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 will be priced at 2,699 yuan (£317).

The company has confirmed to launch two products-Mi 8 and the Mi Band 3-on Thursday. While the Mi 8 Explorer Edition has the latest Snapdragon 845 SoC, the Vivo X21 is powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC.

EXPLORER EDITION. The Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition comes with extra bells and whistles for discerning phone lovers.

The new Xiaomi fitness band is the successor to the Mi Band 2 that was launched back in 2016.

When it comes to video recording, the Xiaomi Mi 8 delivers generally low levels of noise, vivid and pleasant-looking color, good focus tracking, super-fast and accurate autofocus, as well as, a wide dynamic range. Xiaomi's latest software boasts new AI camera features, as well as a redesigned recent app interface that maximizes screen space. Here's a detailed comparison between Mi 8, OnePlus 6 and Honor 10 keeping the specifications and features in mind.

The notch on the Mi 8 is larger than what we have seen on other recently launched Android smartphones. Unlike the Mi 8, the SE does not have the technology for 3D facial recognition.

Other than that, the SE is every bit the same phone as the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer edition, with the same software, cameras, and dual-frequency Global Positioning System.

Sure, there have been plenty of iPhone copycats in the Android world in the past - and Xiaomi's guilty of this with previous models, too - but this is about as similar a design as we've ever seen from a mainstream brand. The RAM and storage options are similar to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. The front camera has features such as AI-enabled bokeh mode, beautification features, etc. The Mi 8 Explorer Edition comes with 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage only. The Mi 8 SE features a smaller 5.88-inch AMOLED display, which is a different variant belonging to the series and comes with the same resolution. Well, that's because the notch on Mi 8 not only houses the 20 MP front camera, earpiece and proximity sensor, but, it is also home to infrared lens that is used for Infrared Face Unlock feature which makes it possible to unlock the smartphone using your face in the dark. Xiaomi disclosed a schedule, but it only applies to open and closed beta tests, so we are months away from the actual release of MIUI 10 for the majority of devices.

The Mi 8 starts off at 2,699 yuan (~$421) for the 6GB RAM/64GB variant.

Available in 4GB RAM/64GB memory and 6GBRAM/64GB memory variants, they come at a price of CNY 1,799 (about Rs 19,000) and CNY 1,999 (about Rs. 21,100) respectively.
