Xiaomi may unveil Mi 8 SE in India next month
As we had posted earlier Xiaomi had unveiled Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer Edition in China last month. It us likely that Xiaomi may unveil Mi 8 SE in India next month. Leaks point out that Xiaomi has so far continued with a strategy of launching only one flagship in India per year, and it does not look like the Mi 8 is coming so soon. The buzz is that the more budget friendly Mi 8 SE could make its way to India.
The tweet mentions Mi 4i, suggesting that Mi 8i will be a variant specifically designed for the Indian market. The new phone sells at Yuan 1799 (Rs 18,999) for the base model with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant costs Yuan 1999 (Rs 21,099). It has to be seen which variant Xiaomi decides to bring into Indian market.
Xiaomi had also announced the Mi 8 Explorer Edition with in-display fingerprint scanner, 3D face unlock feature and a transparent back. However, the exact date for Mi 8 SE India launch is not clear at this moment. Xiaomi has not officially confirmed anything so the information is just to be taken as an estimate.
Previously, it was speculated that the company will not bring Mi 8 to the Indian market given its predecessor Mi 6 never made it here. Though Mi 5 was launched in India, the phone was not as successful as the company’s budget devices in the country. Now, it looks like the Chinese company could announce the budget-friendly Mi 8 SE, which comes with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 710 platform, 5.88 AMOL Full Screen Display, 12MP + 5MP Al rear dual camera, 20MP front camera and enhanced low-light photography.
