Xiaomi turns eight . The once start-up Most valued in the world is already a full-fledged candidate for the podium of the industry worldwide,and also makes it true to its principles,and keeping their mantras intact.
These strategic lines have led to the success of the popular Chinese manufacturer, and now, in, Xiaomi has dared to auto-regalar a new high-end smartphones — that will seek to take them to the forefront in a 2018 lack of hope.
It is not that the Chinese manufacturer has invented the wheel, but it has been bold enough for their Mi 8 to look for the inspiration among the ideas and successful concepts of other manufacturers , uniting all of them in a family of smartphones that, sincerely, seems to us called to the direct triumph:
He Xiaomi Mi 8 is everything we expected from the Chinese manufacturer, a high-performance telephone adapted to 2018, clonic to the iPhone X with its ‘Notch’ and all but without greater stridencies. Your biggest advantage? A price below the average …
That would come accompanied by a more “wealthy” version we also knew, but the My 8 Explorer Edition It is almost a surprise. We had seen his design, with a transparent back thatin the purest style HTC (but well done), although the novelty is in the integrated fingerprint reader under the panel and, as well as in a Approach to Face ID with face recognition in 3D …
The really amazing device was however the My 8 SE , a “special edition” that could well be, with more moderate features but premiering Snapdragon 710 by Qualcomm , and a price, really, of scandal. Will My A2 itself make sense now?
Pieces of the Xiaomi Mi7 and the Mi MIX 2S mixed with an iPhone X, and fried with the back of an HTC U11 Plus that passed unnoticed by the market in recent months, but that sat chair with its transparent back glass for.
All in three flavors to play in all leagues like Huawei, and seasoned by the courage of Vivo with the fingerprint reader under the AMOLED panel, and adopting for the Android platform the recognition of faces in three dimensions made in Apple . Well, hey, surely this was what the market expected, or not …?
Join the best to learn is more than lawful, take successful ideas to make a smartphone that paints a smash, too. And if that also allows you to differentiate yourself because nobody has been as brave as you when it comes to copying what triumphs , so much the better …
So, and except for the ‘Notch’ that I do not like it a pepper , for me The Xiaomi Mi 8 -or at least the Explorer Edition in particular- they have everything to assault the Android throne , and that even though, really, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is nothing more than an iPhone X copied indiscriminately , at least in concept.
He has not bothered Xiaomi even in vary the colors of the wallpaper As for Apple’s terminal, in fact, it has looked for similar ones, and it has not been too restrained when it comes to copy the graphic material of the iPhone X :
The truth is that Huawei’s strategy traced to the Xiaomi guys has occurred to them that the special edition of the Mi 8 is precisely the least prestacional , aimed at the mid-range and around 200-250 euros with specifications clearly above that average.
What the Chinese manufacturer does not dare is to adopt recognized signatures for cameras or sound, and will continue trusting that the price / performance ratio is sufficiently differentiating to convince the users. For now it works, but still this is bread for today and hunger for tomorrow.
He classic model offers features of the highest range and a trend design that we hope will be fleeting as the fashions. Yes, does not boast of anything in particular , and is content to imitate the iPhone X outside and inside the best smartphones in the Android catalog, offering what people are looking for at a more contained price .
Different is the case of the Explorer Edition , which in your case wants to attack them all in the conquest of the market throne. To do this, opt for a really nice design and to introduce two characteristics in which it will be a pioneer in the high-end , the fingerprint reader under the panel and a technology similar to Face ID. Xiaomi at the forefront? It looks like it is…

He biggest protagonist of the year on the Android platform It is not a phone nor a manufacturer, much less a Google service, because in Spain we still expect most of the news presented in.
Surely involuntarily, is the controversial ‘Notch’ the one that has made the most ink in these first weeks of the year, and really the only one who wins in this battle is an Apple that I had adopted it as an emergency solution to integrate components, and not as much as a differentiating aesthetic dressing.
On Android, everyone misunderstood, and thewill end up getting let’s end up accepting the notch as valid . In fact, LG itself stated in the G7 presentation thatand vote positive in surveys and market studies.
What it has achieved this year in the smartphone market is that on the outside we can not differentiate any, if any Samsung because it continues to maintain symmetries (for now), although important news the truth is that we are still waiting for them … You will have to try that integrated fingerprint reader!
