Xiaomi bringing Mi 8 Lite, Mi 8 Pro to PH

Xiaomi's phones come to the UK with the Mi 8 Pro and Redmi 6A

Despite being the fourth-largest global smartphone brand, Xiaomi has yet to really crack the western market, with its popularity in Asia accounting for most of its market share.

Xiaomi's entry into the United Kingdom follows its arrival in France and Italy this May, and the official entry last November into Spain, its first Western European market, where it had already become the third largest smartphone vendor.

The Mi 8 Lite, last-gen Mi 6 flagship, Mi Max 3, Redmi Note 5, and Redmi Note 6 Pro, Mi Pad 4, and Mi Pad 4 Plus are all billed for a Q1 2019 rollout.

Xiaomi announced its United Kingdom product portfolio at an event held in London earlier today.

To recall, Xiaomi's latest MIUI 10 custom ROM was announced at the company's annual product launch event in June this year.

Xiaomi has confirmed that it will begin selling phones and smart home devices in the United Kingdom.

Governor's race in machine recount; Senate's, Ag Commissioner's in hand recount
Broward, Florida's second-largest county, is a Democratic stronghold, and the tally favored Democrats by a margin of two-to-one. As of 9 a.m., DeSantis' lead was just 42,948 votes out of 8,189,305 ballots cast - equal to 0.52 percent of the vote.

Specifically the Mi A2 and Mi 8 Lite are the ones going for the obscenely low price. In the UK, Xiaomi will also open a brick-and-mortar Mi Store in Westfield London on 18th November.

The most striking and unique aspect of the phone is undoubtedly the glass black.

The front of the phone is less striking, with a very familiar look - meaning a relatively wide notch and a small chin at the bottom of the phone, like nearly every other Android phone to launch this year.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the Mi 8 Pro comes packed with a 6.21-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 2248 x 1080 pixels resolution. It will use a 24 megapixel (MP) selfie camera and have rear 12MP + 5MP AI dual-cameras, all from Sony. A big part of the camera system, and a growing trend in the smartphone market, is also the AI scene recognition, which can detect up to 25 objects/scenarios and optimises the image accordingly.

The Chinese brand revealed the Redmi 6A, Mi 8 and Mi 8 Pro as the first phones that will hit the market. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, coupled with 6GB/ 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage.
