We knew that Xiaomi had several novelties to announce today, but we did not imagine that all of them would be so important. After, and the expectedthe signature now announces the special version of its latest star device, loaded with news and that it arrives to occupy the gap of the medium-premium range that last year fell on the Mi Note 3.
Your name the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE , and despite sharing certain details with his older brother, it is a very different smartphone, which probably creeps into the pocket of more than one user in search of a powerful terminal, well designed and, above all, very cheap.
The Mi 8 SE could be defined as a mix between the iPhone X and the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S . Its construction in aluminum and glass, forms a somewhat more compact body than that of the Mi 8, thanks to a 5.8 inch Full HD + AMOLED screen , that in spite of reducing its margins to the minimum, does not forget the controversial notch in its upper part, housing the 3D facial recognition system.
The most interesting part of the terminal lies in its interior, as it is the first telephone in the market to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor , the last chip of the Californian destined to give life to the medium-premium range. It’s about a SoC of ten nanometers and eight cores, with artificial intelligence and, according to Xiaomi, much more powerful than the previous Snapdragon 660. Next to the new chip, there are 4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage and 3,120 mAh of battery that accompany it.
Another aspect that changes with respect to the Mi 8 is the photographic one. They are again two cameras that occupy the glass back of the phone, although this time 12 and 5 megapixels respectively . What is not missing is the help for artificial intelligence, which enables portrait mode both in the back, as in the 20 megapixel front camera.
