Xiaomi officially enters the UK with the Mi 8 Pro

Xiaomi has enjoyed significant growth in the European market in recent years, but it seems the Chinese brand is far from done.

In a bid to give the United Kingdom launch some momentum, Xiaomi also used the London event to unveil its new flagship phone, the Mi 8 Pro.

The list of devices that will be updated to MIUI 10 Stable build is Xiaomi Mi Max 2, Xiaomi Mi 4s, Mi 4c, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi Max, Mi 4, Mi Max Prime and more.

To recall, Xiaomi's latest MIUI 10 custom ROM was announced at the company's annual product launch event in June this year. The company is opening a Mi shop on 18 November in Westfield, west London.

The star attraction is the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro. That's because it's actually transparent, giving you a direct look onto the internals of the device.

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. "It features a 6.21" AMOLED display with a notch that pushes a Full HD+ resolution. As for the configurations, the Mi 8 Pro comes with a dual camera setup on the rear with a primary sensor of 12-megapixel for wide-angle shots and secondary sensor of also 12-megapixel. 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. Under the hood, it runs on a Snapdragon 660 processor and it comes in two spec options - 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. The Mi 8 Pro was previously launched in China, and soon after, which the company started teasing the global roll-out of the phone, and considering India is one of the most important countries for Xiaomi, we expect the phone will be coming to the country soon.
