Xiaomi Mi 8 vs OnePlus 6: Price, Specifications, and features compared

Aside from the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, and the Mi 8 Explorer EditionXiaomi today announced the newest variation of its MIUI software, which will arrive on nearly all devices the company has unveiled in the past four years.

The new Mi TV 4 is priced at CNY 8,999, which roughly translates to Rs 95,000.

The Mi 8 is also Xiaomi's first phone to feature dual-frequency Global Positioning System, which uses a combination of two satellite frequencies instead of one to compute its position. The Mi 8 SE will go for a mere 1,799 yuan ($281 USD).

Both the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition also have transparent glass back panels.

Xiaomi follows a pretty basic recipe when designing a new high-end smartphone: it has to give consumers lots more bang for the buck than the competition.

Senate bill would unify all United States volcano monitoring activity
Scientists said the molten rock there could start moving faster if fresher, hotter magma emerges from the ground. Officials have said they did not expect the explosion to be deadly as long as people remained out of the park.

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

Anyway, the Xiaomi Mi 8 captures vivid photos with a good dynamic range in various scenarios (including low-light) and delivers accurate exposure and white balance at the same time.

The lead handset, the Xiaomi Mi 8, has a mammoth 6.21-inch OELD display with an FHD+ resolution of 2448 x 1080. "It sports a 0.78" OLED screen, a marked jump in size from the Mi Band 2's 0.42" one. The affordable Mi Band 3 hasn't changed much from the Mi Band 2, apart from tweaks in design and added features. At the same event, the company also unveiled a special edition of the Mi 8, the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. Other features of the AI-enabled camera include HDR adjustment, facial recognition, EIS, etc. Now instead of showing the recent apps like a deck of cards, the MIUI 10 will show them side by side, making it possible for the users to see as much as six recent apps in a single view. In fact, this is the first smartphone, which runs on the Qualcomm's first 700 series chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Octa-core with Adreno 616 GPU.

OnePlus 6 also features a dual rear setup- 16-megapixel primary lens with f/1.7 aperture, 1.22-micron pixels, gyro-EIS and OIS + 20-megapixel secondary lens with f/1.7 aperture, 1-micron pixels. The standard Mi 8 has a face unlock feature as well, but it misses out on the 3D tech. The phone has 4GB and 6GB variants with 64GB storage. Other Android phones have offered infrared-based authentication before, the Vivo X21 being first to come to mind. The company also showed off the smaller Mi 8 SE, the first phone with Qualcomm's just-announced Snapdragon 710 upper-midrange SoC. 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. And if the Chinese pricing is anything to go by, the handset should prove an extremely competitive rival for the Apple flagship, with the Mi 8 starting at 2,699 CNY (RM1675.37). The TV will be going on sale in China at a price of Yuan 8,999.
