Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro Now Available In The UK & It Has A Transparent Design

Written by Gina Stephens


Xiaomi has well-known its UK debut by introducing the Mi 8 Pro smartphone, for the first time outside of China and the device has a transparent back, red detailing and a dual rear camera. 

Curved Gorilla Mirror 5 is used in the design to make it more comfortable to hold and a thin aluminium frame keeps everything in place. The screen is also constructed from Curved Gorilla Specs 5, measures 6.21-inch and has a resolution of 1080×2248. 

In-screen fingerprint sensors are proving to be popular and Xiaomi joins the groove ons of Huawei in introducing one on the Mi 8 Pro and you can also use infrared facial unlock. 

The dual-camera features a 12MP Samsung telephoto sensor as well as a 12MP Sony wide-angle sensor, dual-pixel autofocus which Xiaomi rumours makes focusing quicker and 4-axis OIS. On the front is a 20MP f/2.0 lens that will also capture video at 1080p. Video with the bottom camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or can be captured at 2160p and 1080p. 


Internal storage sits at 128GB with 6/8RAM and there's a 3000mAh battery shaped in.

As well as good hardware, Xiaomi has worked on its software to improve the photographer's experience when using the camera app.

There's also a Xiaomi Mi8 but we don't be versed if, as of yet, if this will be available in the UK.
