updating: With a price that starts with NISNUMX in local stores (and even 2,000 new shekels only if you find yourself in Eilat), the Mi 1,700 officially becomes the new smartphone.Snapdragon 845, the cheapest in Israel, which is cheaper than the Mi Mix 2s of Xumi itself and also cheaper than a few hundred shekelsOnePlus 6.
It is worth remembering that this is the standard version of the Mi 8 that landed in the local market, without a transparent back and without an in-screen fingerprint scanner - while currently the Explorer version and the discounted SE version (with chip Snapdragon 710 instead) are not available in the local landscape. You should still follow and pay attention if and when this situation changes - especially when it comes to possible confusion between the SE version and the "original" and more advanced one.
Original article: The sophisticated and unique Explorer model of the Mi 8, which has received a lot of criticism from HTC When viewed, it can be purchased at Chinese online stores
Xiomi's Mi 8 produced quite a bit of interest when it was introduced in May in three sub-versions, among other things because it became the first model of anomalies with a top fault on the screen, one of the first to use the chip,Snapdragon 710 - and also because of its Explorer Edition version in which a semi-transparent back display showcased the advanced printed circuit board that is responsible for everything from the inside. Or not really.
While HTC has already launched Smartphones With a back that can be seen through some of the actual hardware components of the device, Shiomi decided to go for a more 'artistic' approach and added a dedicated cover that only looks like the main printed circuit of the smartphone - and position it so that it looks as prominent as possible through the back of the Mi 8, without Nothing. I did not really like this unusual approach that preferred a marketing gimmick over real capabilities (and even reduced the battery capacity of the Explorer model compared to the standard Mi 8). HTC And in the eyes of some consumers - mainly because Shiomi admitted it only in retrospect, instead of declaring it properly already at launch.
Still, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is a smart-looking smart device with a built-in fingerprint scanner on its Super AMOLED screen, chip Snapdragon 845, 8GB RAM, built-in 128GB storage and advanced face recognition technology called Face ID, which is very reminiscent of Dark - and is now available for official purchase in China, with a not inconsiderable single price tag of 3,700 yuan, or about $ 530, which is 1,000 yuan higher than the base price of the Mi 8.
The launch of the Explorer version coincides with the launch of the standard Mi 8 model in Israel by the official local representative, at a starting price of NIS 2,100 - when unfortunately the launch of the transparent back model in the Holy Land is currently not expected. Those who feel they have to get their hands on the most sophisticated model that Shiomi at Arsenal can do so through a direct purchase from abroad or relying on parallel importers here in the country, although it is likely to be a relatively expensive pleasure. So what do you think? -Mi 8 standard - or go for the whole box office and the most prestigious model? Let's share the comments.
