The Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer is mostly the same phone, except it has more advanced facial recognition hardware plus an under display fingerprint reader. It also has an attractive translucent back – you can see the Snapdragon 845 chip through the glass.
The Explorer will launch a month later than the other two and cost CNY 3,800 ($600/€500), that’s a bit more than the top-specced Mi 8. The Explorer has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage, the top Mi 8 model has 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage.
While the base Mi 8 is the first phone with dual GPS, the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is the first with Snapdragon 710. The AI-focused chip can’t match the S845 in GPU performance, but should be up there in CPU speed. And the chip is still capable of 2160p at 60fps video recording. Its high frame rate mode goes up to 1080p at 120 fps.
The SE model will cost CNY 1,800 ($280/€240) so that’s a surprising amount of bang for the buck. You get a slightly smaller Super AMOLED – 5.88” – but that also makes the phone more compact. It still has a notch, though the facial scanning hardware is gone.
