The Xiaomi Mi 8 and the strategy of inspiration

Xiaomi Mi 8: characteristics, price, availability ...

We have seen on many occasions this year "inspirations" of the iPhone X. Xiaomi, unlike other manufacturers, has never bothered to hide that it drinks from many competing designs, so this Xiaomi Mi 8 is no exception. The thing is, maybe They've been a little overdone.

The protagonist of the device is the large screen of 6.21 inch in 19: 9 format due to controversial notch than the crown. The panel technology is OLED (finally dare), and the first thing we see is that the notch it is most prominent than the competition, being much more similar than expected to the iPhone X.

Xiaomi claims that it has the volume of a 5.5-inch mobile, which explains why the battery stays at 3400 mAh.

In the back we have a double camera arranged in a vertical format, and a fingerprint reader in a good and accessible location. We have a finish premium that denotes the quality of construction of Xiaomi, as we were used to with the previous generation.

We lose on the way 3.5mm jack but we also have a USB-C at the bottom, a dual rear camera and a size according to the screen ratio similar to what we have seen with for example the OnePlus 6.

Dual rear camera, conventional

Is dual rear camera is 12 Mpx in both sensors, although it has a telephoto to zoom as in the Xiaomi Mi 6. However, in this case it has artificial intelligence, such as that of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, in addition to being optically stabilized.

The conventional sensor is a Sony IMX363 with f / 1.8 and a pixel size of 1.4 microns and the secondary sensor is a telephoto S5K3M3 with f / 2.4 and a pixel size of 1 micron.

Like the iPhone X or Huawei P20 Pro, it has a studio mode in which to edit light scenes and radically modify photos.

And how could it be otherwise, Xiaomi advances in the beauty mode that is so important for Asian users. Now apply a 3D scan of the face to improve our appearance more precisely.

Unlock with infrared, like iPhone X

If you have noticed, the notch of the Xiaomi Mi 8 is not exactly small. The reason is the same that makes the iPhone X great too: infrared unlocking system.

Unlike its rivals, Xiaomi opts for an advanced system much more secure than we see for the first time on Android. This option is only available in the Explorer Edition variant, the normal one uses technology already seen, by software using the front camera.
