At the time of launch, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro was announced in three color variants: Twilight Gold, Black, and one special variant, a transparent version similar to the Mi 8 EE edition. In many ways, the new model is a good replacement for the Explorer Edition, featuring a cheaper price without its 3D face unlock feature on board.

The screen fingerprint sensor found on the EE edition makes it way to this cheaper model, however, there are a few differences. According to the company, the Mi 8 Pro’s screen fingerprint is 29% faster than the EE edition. Further, the success rate increases by a solid 8.8%. Overall, when it comes to fingerprint, the Mi 8 Pro should offer a superior experience than the EE edition.



The mirror like finish is obtained by a vacuum nanometer splash plating technology. The end result is a highly reflective back surface with hues changing from the top to the bottom.
