Xiaomi's phones come to the UK with the Mi 8 Pro and Redmi 6A

Xiaomi officially enters the UK with the Mi 8 Pro

Xiaomi's European expansion continues, with the wireless carrier Three handling the network coverage for the new Xiaomi smartphones in the UK.

The downside to that is United Kingdom customers would previously have had to import Xiaomi devices from China or other parts of Asia, potentially adding customs fees and VAT, reducing the overall value proposition.

While Xiaomi's strength lies in the smartphone segment, the new pricing will be affecting only two smartphones.

Redmi 6A, Redmi 6, Mi LED TV 4C Pro 32-inch, Mi LED TV 4A Pro 49-inch and the 10,000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i Black will also see a hike in prices.

"If you're looking for something more affordable, the Mi 8 Lite features a 6.26" Full HD+ LCD that comes with a notch.

The same variant of the Mi 8 Pro, which is launched in China, has come to the UK. Those are dummy components that you can see, but it gives the phone a different look to nearly any other phone on the market. This feature was originally introduced with the launch of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3.

The company's products will be sold both online and in store, including at an authorized Mi outlet due to open in London's Westfield mall on November 18. A big part of the camera system, and a growing trend in the smartphone market, is also the AI scene recognition, which can detect up to 25 objects/scenarios and optimises the image accordingly. The Mi 8 Pro was previously launched in China, and soon after, which the company started teasing the global roll-out of the phone, and considering India is one of the most important countries for Xiaomi, we expect the phone will be coming to the country soon.

Other core specs are pretty standard for a modern flagship, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
