The front of the phone is less striking, with a very familiar look - meaning a relatively wide notch and a small chin at the bottom of the phone, like nearly every other Android phone to launch this year.

Elsewhere, the 12MP+12MP (one wide-angle, one telephoto) camera configuration is the same as on the original Mi 8, with a Sony IMX363 primary sensor and Samsung S5K3M3 secondary sensor, and that phone scored 105 for photos according to DxOMark. It will use a 24 megapixel (MP) selfie camera and have rear 12MP + 5MP AI dual-cameras, all from Sony. It has 4-axis OIS as well as 2x optical zoom and a variety of artificial intelligence features to improve your image quality in auto mode. The Mi 8 Pro comes in a 8GB+128GB configuration and will come in transparent titanium for P32,990. There's one storage version at 128GB, and it's now unclear if you'll be able to use microSD cards with the phone. However, the Xiaomi Flagship Store on Lazada will begin offering it on 11 November instead. The new prices will help Xiaomi prevent incurring losses for the aforementioned products. This was achieved between October 9 and November 8, 2018.

The company also revealed you'll be able to buy the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 from a variety of third-party retailers.
