Xiaomi Mi 8 on DxOMark: joining the big leagues

Xiaomi also announced three new smartphones during the Shenzhen event which are the Mi 8, Mi 8 SE and Mi 8 Explorer Edition.

The Mi 8 will be priced at around $421, the Explorer Edition priced at $577, while the Mi 8 SE will go for $281.

The Mi 8 packs a 6.21-inch AMOLED screen from Samsung which, within the notch, houses a 20-megapixel selfie camera and the infrared tech that unlocks the phone by scanning the user's face.

Rumours are rife that the company might unveil a low-end model Mi 8 SE with watered down specifications.

Victim's Body Found After Maryland Flash Flooding
As rescuers continue searching for Hermond, there were no reports of deaths or major injuries as of early Monday , Kittleman said. Authorities say Ellicott City, on the west bank of Maryland's Patapsco River, is prone to periodic flooding .

Perhaps the biggest difference between the Xiaomi Mi 8 and the iPhone X is the price. It is worth noting that the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is the first-ever smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm's new mid-range chipset.

All three Mi 8 phones will get Xiaomi's MIUI 10-skinned version of Google's Android mobile OS.

The Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is priced at 169 Yuan ($26) in China (199 Yuan for the NFC variant), which means that it's just a little bit more expensive than the Mi Band 2, which are great news for those of you who are planning to get it. Also, the Xiaomi variant isn't available yet in China or in India, so if you're looking at a purchase right away, the Vivo X21 is your only option. OnePlus 6 sports a 6.28-inch Full HD+ (1080x2280 pixels) Optic AMOLED display and 19:9 aspect ratio.

So this Xiaomi Mi 8 is better than the Mi Mix 2S. That said, the Mi 8 is also the first Xiaomi smartphone that comes with a notch. Other features of the AI-enabled camera include HDR adjustment, facial recognition, EIS, etc.

Nabil Fekir Says He's 'Not Close to the Reds'
The same report says that Liverpool FC are ready to pay a fee in the region of £60m to secure the signing of Fekir this summer. Fekir insists a move to Liverpool is " not close " as speculation mounts over the Lyon playmaker's future.

Aside from these, the Mi 8 will also come with a fingerprint sensor in the back and a shiny new dual-frequency Global Positioning System sensor that Xiaomi claims will boost accuracy and signal reception. Let's see what we can gleam from the info we have so far! At the heart of the handset is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC alongside 6GB of RAM and your choice of 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage. It has 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. That's Synaptics' own, coming here in the FS9500, inside the Xiaomi Mi8 Explorer Edition smartphone line. This new update will allow these phones with single camera setup to snap pictures with the depth of field effect.

The dual-SIM 4G VoLTE smartphone supports Bluetooth 5.0, dual band Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headphone jack, Type-C USB connector, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, Face Unlock, gyro, proximity, compass and accelerometer among others. The device comes with the glass back body and sports rear-facing fingerprint sensor.

This is a very affordable fitness tracker too with the price set at 179 Chinese yuan for the most basic version, which roughly translates as $30 / £20 / AU$36.
