Wow! Just when you thought you had seen it all after the Oppo Find X and Nex, Xiaomi decides to come with a Mi 8 with a clear back side called the “Explorer Edition” and truth to be told, it is a lot better then the iPhone colors we have seen so far.
This baby will go on sale on the 30th Juli on the Xiaomi Mall and it will cost you 3600 Yuan or $545 US.
The company did not state the number of units available but we know that Xiaomi initially had a stocking issue with the Xiaomi Mi 8 thus we don’t expect the Mi 8 EE to be any different giving that it is a special edition.
In addition to the Snapdragon 845 processor and a dual-frequency GPS, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition also has three unique highlights. First, it comes with the world’s first pressure-sensitive on-screen fingerprint module. The introduction of a high-sensitivity pressure sensor means that the finger does not need to stay too much on the screen when unlocking. With a gentle press on the screen, you achieve a clear fingerprint image, with vibration feedback, so that the unlocking experience is smooth.
Secondly, the rear fuselage is completely transparent, so you can see the internal structure of the mobile phone from the back. It has a new design NFC coil, Kevlar textured battery decoration and high-precision components which shows its beauty from behind.
Thirdly, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition is the first Android phone that supports “Face ID” . Unlike the iPhone’s speckle structure light scheme, the coded structured light scheme uses 33,000 coded dot matrix projected by a dot matrix projector. It creates a millimeter-level 3D facial model that can be cracked down to a millionth of a probability.
