Xiaomi has finally launched the first device with Snapdragon 888 in its home country, china. Xiaomi has gone full in with this device and it has some really interesting features up its sleeve.
To start off with, the device has dual stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon. It is the world’s first smartphone that can detect one’s heart rate with the help of the fingerprint scanner that is under the display. As said above, it is the first official device in the world to launch with Snapdragon 888.
Talking about the price, the device is priced at RMB 3,999 (approx Rs 45,000) for the 8GB + 128GB, while the 8GB + 256GB variant costs RMB 4,299 (approx Rs 48,400). The top-end 12GB + 256GB variant is priced at RMB 4,699 (approx Rs 52,900). It will be available in Blue, White, and Black colour options. There’s also a special leather edition that will be offered in orange and purple colours.
Before we talk about the specifications, we are addressing the charger situation here. Xiaomi already announced a couple of days back that it won’t be providing a charger with the Mi 11 in the box for environmental protection purposes.
Now the company has cleared up the situation by providing two retail boxes, one with the charger and one without the charger. This way, the consumer can decide if they want a charger or not. Secondly, both the retail boxes cost the same so it’s up to the buyer regarding which box they want.
