Xiaomi Mi 8 SE Goes on Sale Tomorrow – First Device to Be Fueled by a Snapdragon 710 With Very Competitive Pricing
On May 31, Xiaomi released three variants of the Mi 8. The standard version of the Mi 8 which started retailing on June 5 was sold out within 37 seconds, according to a Xiaomi official. The rising Chinese tech star is now gearing up to launch the Mi 8 SE on June 8 and in case you didn’t know, it is going to be the first smartphone to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710, a 10nm FinFET that you can get to know all about here.
Xiaomi Mi 8 SE to Be Available in Two Models, With the Cheapest One Costing as Low as $282 to Shake up the Market
Xiaomi is going to be releasing the affordable smartphone in two configurations. The first one will get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory for an affordable price of $282. There is also going to be a 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage model which will retail for $313 if currency conversions are taking place. In short, these variants are going to become a popular pick for consumers looking to snare an Android device that does not cost as much as the current-gen flagships.
Coming to the rest of the hardware, the Mi 8 SE will sport a 5.88-inch screen with an FHD+ resolution of 2,244 x 1,080. The display is an AMOLED panel, which is very surprising because of the price tag attached. The display panel also sports a notch, which won’t be to everyone’s liking. Both the variants will be accompanied by high-end front and rear cameras, while the 20MP selfie cam will complement the entire configuration. The AI features would be the same as those seen on Mi 8 and will be powered by software instead of a dedicated NPU.
The phone will also offer dual SIM support but does not get expandable storage, unfortunately. For security, the Mi 8 SE will have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3,120mAh battery and Quick Charge 3.0 support. The Mi 8 SE will go on sale at 10:00 AM on June 8 and to be honest, it will hardly be surprising to see the smartphone sell out. Given its price tag, it should sell out like hot cakes.
