Xiaomi officially enters United Kingdom market with major retailer backing

Xiaomi Redmi 6 64GB Storage Model Redmi 6 Pro Available on Open Sale in India

Chinese phonemaker Xiaomi is releasing its first handset in the United Kingdom, as the company seeks to expand its reach beyond Greater China.

Many UK dwellers have bought Xiaomi products before.

While Xiaomi's strength lies in the smartphone segment, the new pricing will be affecting only two smartphones.

Ferocious winds whip California fires as death toll rises to 31
Other volunteer opportunities related to the fires are posted on California Volunteers , including financial and other donations. According to fire officials, it has burned more than 109,000 acres (44,000 hectares) and destroyed hundreds of properties.

Xiaomi has a lot of fantastic phones, and they all offer great value.

Back in September, when Xiaomi introduced the Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite, the company confirmed the handsets for a launch in China but was tight-lipped about any other potential releases.

Xiaomi, the world's fourth ranked smartphone maker, entered Britain on Thursday with the worldwide debut of its flagship Mi 8 Pro, which it hopes will win fans in a market dominated by Samsung and Apple. Overall, during the festive sales, Xiaomi has sold around three devices every second.

Justice Ginsburg Released From Hospital
Ginsburg returned home Friday after falling Wednesday night in her court office and heading to the hospital Thursday. Ginsburg, who is a two-time survivor of cancer, has said she has no near-term plans of slowing down or retiring.

That is because the Mi 8 Pro is not only launching with the same £499 price tag as its Chinese rival, but it also comes with an array of similar technologies such as an in-display fingerprint reader. That's because it's actually transparent, giving you a direct look onto the internals of the device. Those are dummy components that you can see, but it gives the phone a different look to nearly any other phone on the market.

Also touted is the pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint lock mechanism on the Mi 8 Pro. 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 Mi Pro features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The 3000mAh battery does seem like a relatively small size for a modern-day phone, though, so it will be interesting to test how long this can actually last in a real-world environment.
