Last week, Xiaomi announced the Mi 8 Pro with a pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint sensor. The handset already went on sale in China a few days ago, but the company stayed mum as to whether the phone will be offered anywhere else in the world.
Well, Xiaomi’s Global spokesperson and Director of Product Management, Mister Donovan Sung has revealed on Twitter that the Mi 8 Pro will indeed be launching globally “soon”. Although he didn’t provide any specific details about which countries are actually going to get the device.
Of course, there are few likely candidates like France or Italy in Europe and India in Asia. But this is only speculation at this point, so you’d better take it with a grain of salt.
In case you have missed the news, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro has arrived with a 6.21-inch full HD display with 18:7:9 aspect ratio. The new device relies on a Snapdragon 845 processor that is backed up by either 6GB or 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.
Xiaomi has included a dual 12MP camera setup on the back featuring a main sensor with 26mm wide-angle lens and f/1.8 aperture. On the front lives a 20MP front-facing camera.
The phone also packs an IR Face unlock system and runs Android 8.1 Oreo with the company’s MIUI on top. It will quite possibly get the update to Android Pie quite soon.
