Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition could go on sale on July 24, prices start at $550
at least two other Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition versions were spotted at TENAA, the Chinese regulatory agency, which will be cheaper than the model initially unveiled. With the addition of these two Mi 8 Explorer Edition variants, Xiaomi plans to cover all price ranges.
Today, we've learned that Xiaomi will make the Mi 8 Explorer Edition available for purchase in China on July 24. A leaked invite also reveals the price starting point – 3699 yuan ($550). Unfortunately, it's unclear whether or not the Mi 8 Explorer Edition will be available for purchase outside China, but we know for sure the regular Mi 8 flagship will be launched in Europe in August.
Besides from the fact that it comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal memory, one other thing that sets the Mi 8 Explorer Edition apart from its cheaper brothers is the transparent back panel, which really makes it stand out.
Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition boasts a very large 6.28-inch AMOLED display, a dual camera (12MP+12MP), a 20-megapixel front camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.
