The detailed specifications are different too-the Mi 8 sports a 6.21-inch AMOLED display sourced from Samsung, which is powered by Qualcomm's top-tier Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC). The brand not only announced one smartphone, but three new phones all at once - the Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition and the Mi 8 SE (Special Edition). According to the news, the Mi 8 will cost 2699 yuan, the Explorer edition will start from 3,99 yuan and the SE will cost 1,799 yuan. We expect the new Redmi Y2 to be Amazon India exclusive alongside Mi.com which is the company's online store in the country while it should be also available via the company's offline retail partners as well. They're set to launch first in China on June 5 and although a broader rollout is expected, no additional availability has been revealed yet. While the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition, smartphones features a 6.21-inch panel, the Mi 8 SE comes with a moderately compact 5.88-inch display. This makes the Mi 8 SE the first device to feature that processor.

Right off the bat as you can see in the image above, the Mi 8 is a very impressive looking handset in terms of design. Both the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer Edition features vertically stacked dual cameras at the back.
