Xiaomi to Launch the 8th Anniversary Edition Smartphone
Xiaomi, a promising startup back in 2010, has now become one of the industry pillars. Some sources state, to celebrate its 8th birthday, the company is launching a new Xiaomi Mi 8 Anniversary edition smartphone.
While no official presentation was held yet, some teasing images has appeared in the Chinese microblogging website Sina Weibo. Rumor is, a model with Snapdragon 845, a 3D face scanning, and an under-display fingerprint sensor will soon be unveiled. They say, it might be also raffled off.
Reportedly, the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be renamed to Xiaomi Mi 8 to mark the anniversary and because 8 is a lucky number in China (meaning wealth and prosperity). The new model is expected to be announced on May 23 and to become available for pre-orders starting from May 27.
