Today, not only Xiaomi has proudly announced its first ever authorised Mi Store in London opening soon but the Mi 8 Pro also made its global debut, which were already revealed in the East back a few weeks ago. The pricing for the 8GB + 128GB model is £499.99 (~RM2730). Anyway, if you haven't caught up all the buzz about the flagship before this, allow us to break down for you on the tech specs and features.

The Mi 8 Pro is exactly the same as it was first revealed back in September 2018, it holds the Snapdragon 845 processor, an 8GB of RAM is on board, a 6.21-inch Super AMOLED display with a notch and has an in-display fingerprint sensor. Although this is not the first time for the company, Xiaomi claimed that the in-display fingerprint sensor is 29% faster and 8.8% efficient than the previous model (the Mi 8 Explorer Edition). The body design also looks badass as it's designed with a transparent titanium colouring back cover. During the presentation, Xiaomi also claims that its Dual Pixel AutoFocus is much faster than other competitors in capturing the focus of a moving subject.
