Xiaomi sets up the Mi 8 for launch event
Xiaomi’s next flagship, the Mi 8, will be announced on May 31. On Tuesday the company started teasing the launch event coming up at the end of the month.
Expect the introduction of the Mi 8 to be grand as Xiaomi celebrates a milestone in 2018. It could be launched as the Mi 8 Anniversary Edition since the number is considered lucky in China.
There’s already some speculation as to what the phone will include, too. Aside from having a 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, the Mi 8 could ship with an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as facial recognition.
Other rumored specs are 8GB of memory, a 4000mAh battery, and fast-charge technology. Xiaomi will go all-in on premium components because, in addition to this being its latest flagship, the eight-year anniversary needs everything to generate buzz.
