The only difference between the older Mi 8 and Mi Mix 2S, and the new Mi Mix 3 is the camera software.

Interestingly, in September 2018, Xiaomi rolled out MIUI update to Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, Mi MIX 2, Mi MIX, Xiaomi Mi 6X, Mi 6X, Mi 5, Mi Note 2, Redmi 6 Pro, Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, Redmi Note 5 and Redmi S2. Those are dummy components that you can see, but it gives the phone a different look to nearly any other phone on the market. It features a 6.21-inch AMOLED display with a notch at the top to give it a full-screen design.

Its phone chargers initially faced a relatively high defect rate because of India's power supply problems and required a redesign to increase voltage.

As for video, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro's dual-lens camera can shoot up to 4K resolution footage. The two new phones will become the latest addition to the Mi 8 family here alongside the titular model which was launched in Malaysia back in August.

It packs 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage but there's no microSD card slot for expanding storage. It comes in Transparent Titanium color and will be available through Three, Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse, Currys PC World, Very, Mobile Phones Direct, Katana and Mi.com. The company has also brought the Mi 8 to the United Kingdom too, and that offers similar spec but there are a couple of missing features as it doesn't include the in-display fingerprint scanner. We've also produced a tips and tricks guide to help you get started with your Mi 8 Pro. If you hurry, you'll be able to buy the band for £19.99 but that's only for the first 10,000 orders between November 12 and November 23.

As for Mi 8 Lite, the 4GB/64GB variant will be made available for RM 999 through Mi Official Store on Shopee starting from 10 November.

Those include a toothbrush, smart scales, a kettle and more.

These products will go on sale in a physical Xiaomi Mi store, which will open at the Westfield shopping centre in Shepherd's Bush, London, on November 18.
