Xiaomi's UK Launch Extravaganza Continues With £1 Smartphone Sales

Xiaomi announces big US event in New York

In addition to the smartphones, Xiaomi also sold over 400,000 Mi LED TVs and more than 2.1 million Mi Ecosystem products and accessories. Hence, we are looking at not only a Mi 8 with a transparent body but also with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

Unlocking the product has been made easy by the facial recognition technology present that is accompanied by a fingerprint reader underneath the display.

As per our report, the Mi 8 Pro is indeed the Mi 8 Explorer Edition that was launched in China on May this year as opposed to this similarly named variant that was released in China a few months later.

The rear glass panel is clear and Xiaomi claims it allows owners to see the "phone's intricacies" easily.

The smartphone has a dual camera setup with a 12 MP primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture and a 12 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom feature and 4K video recording capability.

Xiaomi claims its new flagship is capable of taking stunning shots in both bright and low-light conditions.

Finally, Xiaomi is pricing the Mi 8 Pro incredibly aggressively at £499.

The Mi 8 Pro is fitted with a 3,000mAh battery that supports fast wired charging.

Such a cost is the same as the baseline OnePlus 6T that recently debuted in New York City.

If you want to pick the Mi 8 Pro up for yourself, it'll be available on November 9 at Three, Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse, Currys PC World, Very, Gomobile, Mobile Phones Direct, Katana, and Mi.com.

Xiaomi will also open its first Mi store in the region on November 18.

The company has also brought the Redmi 6A to the United Kingdom which is a more affordable phone with a 5.45-inch HD display, powered by a Mediatek Helio A22 chipset and includes a 13MP rear camera. However, the brand is now officially coming to the United Kingdom and will hook up with tech distributors like Amazon, Three, CPW and John Lewis - as well as opening a flagship Mi Store in Westfield London. It is the highest number of smartphones Xiaomi has ever sold in the mentioned period.
