Xiaomi took the wraps off the Mi 8 models only recently and the Mi 8SE turned out to be an extremely popular model among the trio. The popularity of the Mi 8SE may not be unconnected with the affordable price tag it adopts. There are indications that the Mi 8SE will launch in India but with a different moniker.

According to Beebom, the Mi 8SE will be launched in India as Mi 8i and the launch will allegedly take place in July. The tipster didn’t reveal any further details. However, we expect the Mi 8SE or Mi 8i to hit India with an unchanged specs lineup with the Chinese version. Xiaomi Mi 8 SE
