The fourth Thursday of November is usually marked as Thanksgiving Day in the US and this year’s celebration fell on November 22. The Thanksgiving Day holiday isn’t celebrated in China but Xiaomi is trying to leverage on the publicity to sell its smartphones in China. The company is promoting the Mi 8 (8GB RAM + 128GB storage version) with a price cut of 400 yuan. Thus, the Mi 8 is now available for 2,899 yuan for the 8GB + 128GB version instead of 3299 yuan.
The new price cut may only be valid for only the Thanksgiving Day but we expect Xiaomi to effect further price cuts on this model as well as several others. The device is available on Xiaomi’s official Mi.com website. Apart from the 8GB +128GB version, all other memory variants also received price cuts ranging from 200 yuan to 400 yuan.
The Mi 8 was released in May this year bearing a mammoth 6.21-inch 2.5D Curved AMOLED screen, FHD+ display with 2248 x1080 pixels resolution for an unmatched viewing experience. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octa-core processor and it uses an Adreno 630 710MHz GPU, under the hood. The device comes with 6GB of RAM and a offers a hearty 128GB of onboard storage so that you can save your favorite content without worrying about running out of storage space. Moreover, it houses a 12MP+12MP dual camera module on the back and houses a 20MP front shooter for selfies. The Mi 8 equally runs on MIUI 10-based Android 8.1 Oreo OS and draws its juices from a 3400mAh battery. On top of that, the phone features a slew of useful sensors including Infrared face recognition, fingerprint (rear-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, NFC, barometer, and compass.
