It is powered by a latest-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and 6GB RAM, and has a rear-facing dual camera (2x12MP) with integrated AI to recognize the kind of photo being taken and instantly optimize the results.

Among a bevy of product announcements during a press event in Senzhen, China today, Xiaomi unveiled its newest flagship Android phone line, the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE, and Mi 8 Explorer Edition. The premium Mi 8 Explorer Edition goes one step further with 3D facial recognition, just like Face ID. However, at least the Mi 8 is expected to be launched in select global markets, including India soon. Meanwhile the Mi 8 SE comes in at 1,799 yuan ($281). The Mi 8 Explore Edition variants come with more RAM, in-display fingerprint scanner and 3D face unlock while the Mi 8 SE comes with a smaller display and trimmed down specifications. The standard Mi 8 will be priced at 2699 Chinese yuan, which works out at around £316.

Sears closing stores in Springfield, Peabody
Earlier this year , the company shuttered locations in Wilmington and Asheville as well as five other stores in the state. Jeff Braun said he was reminded of that recently when he found and used his grandfather's 70-year-old Sears table vise.

We'll probably have to wait for the Mi 8 Explorer Edition's real-world release to see whether Xiaomi is telling the truth or not.

But that's not the only similarity the Mi 8 bears to the iPhone X.

Mega Man 11 may be coming this October
You'll be able to pick up Mega Man 11 when it launches October 2 for Xbox One , PlayStation 4 , Nintendo Switch , and PC. Wily with the aid of a new Double Gear system which can expand his abilities with new powers.

Elsewhere, the Mi 8 sports a USB-C port for charging and audio, the latest version of Xiaomi's Android skin and dual Global Positioning System - which make location-based services like navigation more precise. The Mi 8 comes in four colors - Black, White, Blue and Rose Gold - and, it ships with a 3400 mAh battery that keeps the entire package up and running. The downside is that like most limited edition Xiaomi phones, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is unlikely to make its way outside of China.

The lead handset, the Xiaomi Mi 8, has a mammoth 6.21-inch OELD display with an FHD+ resolution of 2448 x 1080.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Trump's decision left him "perplexed" and was "very regrettable". Any visit to the United States would indicate a waiver was granted.

Whereas Mi 8 comes with 6GB RAM and three other basic configurations of 64GB internal storage, 128GB internal storage, and 258GB internal storage. For those looking for a bargain, the Mi 8 SE is a great deal at the equivalent of around $311. The front camera is a 20MP sensor, same as the one on Redmi Note 5 and the Xiaomi Mi 6X. The Xiaomi Band 3 is priced at CNY 169 which is approximately Rs 1,745 and the NFC version costs CNY 199 that translates roughly to Rs 2,081. The company posted a new teaser video on its official Redmi India account to generate hype for the upcoming device. Let us know in the comments!
