Xiaomi is bringing another high-end device here in the Philippines. This time, we have the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro, the most advanced sibling of the company’s current flagship line-up.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro packs some of the usual features that you can find on traditional flagship devices, plus a few extra more. This thing is powered by the trusty Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, with 8GB of memory, and 128GB of expandable storage.

On the front, we have a 6.21-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen, complete with the modern in-display fingerprint scanner that we see in most high-end devices today.

Since this is another flagship offering for the Chinese brand, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro boasts a really capable set of cameras. What we’re dealing here is a 20-megapixel selfie snapper on the front, and a 12-megapixel (wide) + 12-megapixel (telephoto) dual cameras on the back with optical image stabilizer.


The Mi 8 Pro will run on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with Xiaomi’s MIUI interface on top. It also has a 3,000mAh battery that’s partnered with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0+ technology.
