Multiple sources have revealed that there will be special edition Mi 8 smartphone that may hit the market with Xiaomi Mi 8 SE moniker. It was speculated that like the Mi 8 smartphone, the Mi 8 SE will also feature the Snapdragon 845. However, a leaked document has revealed that it will be fueled by the newly announced Snapdragon 710 mobile platform. The very same document has also revealed that the Mi 8 SE is equipped with AI dual camera with 1.4μm pixel size and LED flash enabled 20-megapixel front-facing camera. It seems that the Mi 8 SE will deliver stellar photography experience. A camera sample shot through the Mi 8 SE has leaked on Weibo. It reveals how good it is when it comes to low-light photography.
The watermark present on the image states that image has been snapped using the AI dual camera of Mi 8 SE. The overall quality of the photo is quite good as the buildings and surroundings have been captured with rich details. Since the smartphone is said to be powered by Snapdragon 710, it could be positioned under Xiaomi Mi 8. Hence, it may get introduced with a pricing of 2,000 Yuan.
There is no information available on the other specs of the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. In April, it was revealed that Comet and Sirius are the two codenames of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi series smartphones. Their leaked firmware files had revealed that they are fitted with OLED panels with Always on Display feature.
The Comet phone could be featuring a regular display, but the screen of the Sirius phone is expected to feature a notch. Since the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is speculated to feature a notched screen, there is a possibility that it could be the Sirius phone. Some of the features that have been revealed through the firmware files of the Sirius phone include 3,120mAh battery, Portrait mode for photography, Android 8.1 Oreo, dual-SIM support and IR blaster. This handset lacks support for microSD card and NFC.

The accurate details on Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE smartphones are still under the wraps. Hence, Xiaomi fans will have to wait until tomorrow to know everything about the Mi 8 duo.
