Xiaomi's Mi 8 is the Chinese phone company's flagship for 2018 and like every other handset's flagship it too will feature an edge-to-edge display broken only by a "notch" on its upper edge. But that's not the only similarity the Mi 8 bears to the iPhone X. It has a pair of cameras on its rear that are arranged vertically (both are 12 megapixel), and the front of the Explorer Edition of the phone features a 20MP camera equipped with infrared face unlocking technology (which sounds a lot like Apple's Face ID to us). Elsewhere, the phone is every bit the flagship Android device we'd expect in 2018. It's got Qualcomm's top of the line Snapdragon 845 chip, and a 6.21-inch AMOLED display. In terms of software, the phone will run Xiaomi's MIUI 10 skin on top of Android (which we've got our fingers crossed is version Oreo, but Xiaomi wasn't able to officially confirm this) and Xiaomi is also packing in its own Xiao Ai voice assistant.
