The Mi 8 Pro originally debuted in China this May, and it's easily the most exciting of the bunch.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the Mi 8 Pro comes packed with a 6.21-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 2248 x 1080 pixels resolution. According to the sources, devices like the Mi Mix 2 and Mi 8 phones are all set to receive the Pie update before the year runs out, while offerings like the Mi Note 3 will have to wait till Q3 2019 next year. On the camera front, the Mi 8 Pro packs an ultra light-sensitive AI camera on the rear panel.

For exmaple, the Redmi 6 with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of inbuilt storage and a dual-camera with 12MP and 5MP sensors will drop from £149 to £129.

Unlike the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, it doesn't come with 3D face unlock, however, it uses the same Infrared Face Unlock like the standard Mi 8. The Mi 8 Pro comes in a 8GB+128GB configuration and will come in transparent titanium for P32,990. You can get it starting tomorrow, 10 November at Authorised Mi Stores throughout Malaysia.
