Xiaomi Mi 8 with display notch & dual camera setup appears in retail packaging
The retail packaging of Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 8 flagship has leaked online. The low-cost Chinese brand has already confirmed its plans to unveil the Xiaomi Mi 8 on May 31 and now, after a number of previous leaks, what appears to be the device’s retail packaging has shown up, revealing various design details in the process.

Overall, it appears Xiaomi’s next flagship will resemble Apple’s iPhone X quite closely, sporting what seems to be a bezel-less display complete with a notch up top. Additionally, this is rumored to house new hardware that will allow for Face ID-rivalling 3D facial recognition, making the Mi 8 the first smartphone to sport the tech. Unlike the iPhone X, though, Xiaomi’s new flagship is expected to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner too. Moving over to the rear of the smartphone, a vertical camera setup adorns the glass build in the top-left corner, with this including two sensors and what appears to be a dual-tone LED flash. Also, when looking at the frame, Xiaomi has equipped the smartphone with an elongated volume rocker and a small power button placed slightly below.

In regards to what hardware specifications the Xiaomi Mi 8 will offer, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will power the smartphone, coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Additionally, 128GB of internal storage will be on offer. On the software side of things, Android 8.1 Oreo will ship straight out of the box with the MIUI 10 custom overlay on top.

Lastly, in terms of a release date and pricing, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is expected to go on sale towards the beginning of June, with pricing rumored to start at roughly $470.

Notch is the new style. Even Android P utilize this features. Haters gonna deal with it, not a deal breaker for the average joe

I don't mind the notch I just don't want the chin that the Android phones come with.

I tested the p20 pro. I'm ok with the notch but the chin with the fps looked hideous af. Completely made me loose interest in the device

If you do not want the chin you certainly would not want the triple chin on most iPhones!

Something's fishy about it. The front of the phone looks EXACTLY like The iPhone X and the rear panel looks EXACTLY like the Oppo R3 hence I doubt the authenticity of this 'teaser'. Do I have great observation or what? Oh well, Whatever. G'Day!

Apple fans are frustrated it's easy to copy the notch.

Easy to copy the notch, but none has managed to do it without a chin like Apple ;)

Of all the chins I have seen, none are acceptable, but by far the worse is Apples, take it or leave it a monstrosity. At least others have done it better.

Just the notch. No tech, no quality but with extra chin.

Just goes to show how dumb phone fans are....first it's bezel, then notch, now it's chins. Wow next it would be demanding 4th dimensional tesseracts.
