Xiaomi Mi 8 leaked specs sheet looks mildly interesting
Xiaomi's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Mi 8 showed off its curves a few days ago, but little was known about what's under the hood until recently. In fact, the only thing that we're certain of is that the Xiaomi Mi 8 will be officially unveiled on May 31, since the information was already confirmed by the Chinese handset maker.

Although we're still one week away from the launch event, a specs sheet allegedly listing the hardware configuration of the Xiaomi Mi 8 has just popped up online. Apparently, the Mi 8 will offer similar specs as any other major flagship available on the market, so it's nothing out of the ordinary.

The important thing is Xiaomi's flagships are cheaper than the competition's, which is why they're more appealing in some markets. The Mi 8 is expected to come equipped with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM, and 128GB internal memory.

The massive 6.2-inch IPS display features FHD+ (2200 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Photographers will be happy to know the Mi 8 boasts a dual-camera setup on the back (20MP+16MP) and a no less impressive 16-megapixel secondary camera in the front.

Xiaomi Mi 8 will be powered by a 3,300 mAh battery and will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Design-wise, the leaked specs sheet claims the phone weighs 172g and that it's only 7.8mm thin.

Although the smartphone will be officially introduced in China, we expect Xiaomi to bring it to additional markets soon afterward.
