Lightweight and curved

If you like phones that are ultra-thin with a gorgeous curved-edge glass body, the Mi 8 will be right up your street. Its 7000 series aluminium alloy frame was designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand.


More screen, high contrast

A phone this size would usually have a 5.5-inch display – but not the Mi 8. This beauty has a 6.21-inch Full HD AMOLED Full Screen display that shows all of your favourite content in undeniable quality. So you won’t be able to resist watching the next episode.



Brighter, more detailed shots

You name it, the AI dual lens camera on the Mi 8 does it. Get up close and detailed with optical zoom, brighten up dark settings with huge pixels and have your own studio session with the Portrait Mode’s 7 different lighting settings. Get ready for your close-up.


20MP up front

Be in control of your selfies with the 20MP front camera, which takes the clearest, brightest selfies around. The newly upgraded 3D Beautify feature enhances your features and even uses AI to blur backgrounds, giving you a studio canvas finish. Classy stuff.



The speed you need

The Xiaomi Mi 8 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, which is a massive leap forward when it comes to performance. You’ll be switching between apps in a flash – and don’t even get us started on gaming. Brace yourself for an absolute thrill fest.


Keep on keeping on

The huge 3,400mAh battery inside the Xiaomi Mi 8 will keep you going all day. And with Fast Charge, you can get a full day of battery power in just 30 minutes. Fast Charge even works while you’re using your phone, so you won’t even have to pause what you’re watching.


Safe and secure

The Mi 8 offers the latest security tech to keep it safe from prying eyes. The in-screen fingerprint sensor works together with other features like IR Face Unlock, to make sure the only person that uses your phone, is you.
