• Meet the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition

    Xiaomi announced a whack of new products yesterday, and here's the pick of the litter. Say hello to the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, featuring a see-through back, in-display fingerprint sensor, 3D face scanner and (unfortunately) a display notch. About the only thing missing is a 3.5 mm audio jack, but Xiaomi will at least include a USB-C to audio adapter in the box. Other specs are as follows:

    6.21 inch 1080 x 2248 pixel AMOLED display @ 402 ppi
    Snapdragon 845 processor
    8 GB RAM / 128 GB storage
    12 MP OIS + 12 MP 2x telephoto rear cameras
    20 MP selfie cam
    3,000 mAh battery
    Dual nano SIM (no microSD)
    MIUI 10 / Android 8.1

    The unlocked price for this beast is expected to be the equivalent of around $580 USD. Whether or not the Mi 8 will support North American LTE bands has yet to be confirmed. And here's the really bad news: this Explorer Edition will only see a limited production run, so it's going to be especially hard to find.
