Xiaomi officially enters the United Kingdom with the Mi 8 Pro

TODO alt text

The company prides itself on replicating the technologies pioneered by its rivals in more affordable handsets, and has swiftly risen to become the fourth-largest smartphone maker globally.

Ahead of their launch in Malaysia tomorrow, Xiaomi has officially revealed the price of their two latest smartphones for our market, the Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite.

On the photography front, you'll find a single-lens 13MP camera on the rear of the device and a 5MP camera around the front, both of which support Xiaomi's AI-fuelled portrait mode. It will sell for £99 SIM-free. The carrier is offering a range of 24-month contracts, starting from £12 a month, with a one-off £19 upfront cost.

HDR results are especially impressive with the Mi 8 Pro, while Xiaomi has also added some bonus features including a Pro mode.

As per our report, the Mi 8 Pro is indeed the Mi 8 Explorer Edition that was launched in China on May this year as opposed to this similarly named variant that was released in China a few months later. 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. Xiaomi's United Kingdom launch signals the company's expansion to a new market, and a step toward being a more global brand. If you prefer a brick-and-mortar experience, there will also be a Mi store opening in Westfield White City, London, for those who want to get a new phone directly from Xiaomi.

Wang Xiang, Senior Vice President of Xiaomi Corporation, said: "Today we witness a new chapter in Xiaomi's global expansion journey, underpinned by our global ambitions".

That is now changing as today, Xiaomi held an event in London to celebrate the company's official launch in the UK.
