In fact, according to the score, the Mi 8 is probably one of the best value smartphones if you are looking for good camera performance.

The actual icing on the cake here would be the inclusion of not only a seemingly sophisticated infrared-based 3D-facial recognition system for unlocking the device (much like the iPhone X), but also the presence of a pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint sensor (completely unlike the iPhone X).

We're still parsing all the Mi 8 information, but here's what we know so far about the new Xiaomi Mi 8 specifications. The Mi 8 boasts the latest Snapdragon 845 processor, an FHD+ (2248 x 1080 pixels) AMOLED display, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with AI-powered features for improving your pictures, and a 20-megapixel snapper in the front.

Xiaomi Mi 8 "Explorer Edition" and Mi 8 SE have also been launched, along with the Mi 8 flagship smartphone at the company's annual product unveiling event in Shenzhen.

This means that on paper it should work similar to Apple's Face ID, although whether or not it will deliver as promised remains to be seen. The company also showed off the smaller Mi 8 SE, the first phone with Qualcomm's just-announced Snapdragon 710 upper-midrange SoC.

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition will be priced at RMB3799 ($600), but there's no word yet on its availability.

Separately, any of these features can make a new high-end device pretty attractive compared to what's already on the market, but, together, they make a strong case for getting the Mi 8 Explorer Edition.

The Mi 8 SE is the cheapest variant out of all of three devices and costs CNY1,799, or $281.

The Mi 8 technology "can rapidly match measurement points on a face while at the same time cutting down 3D data processing to save power", says Xiaomi. The Mi 8 SE will be available in two variants, one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and the other one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.

Mi 8 has a notch on top and an 18.7: 9 aspect ratio.

The phone, celebrating the 8th anniversary of the Chinese tech giant, comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, dual cameras and dual Global Positioning System.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 is awfully familiar.

A 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel dual camera is on the rear with AI functionality. The Mi 8 Explorer Edition has the same dimensions, but weighs slightly more at 177 grams.

The top of the range Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition will be available for 3,699 yuan (~$577) at a later date that Xiaomi hasn't specified.

Xiaomi also claims the same 20 days of battery life but we do have to see whether that's true when put to the test in everyday conditions.
