Xiaomi today officially entered the United Kingdom market with the launch of its Mi 8 Pro flagship smartphone.

As you can see above, the design of the phone features a clear glass element that shows you the internals of the device. It has a 6.21-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor, IR face unlock system, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Taking yet more inspiration from Apple's flagship lineup, the Mi8's camera offers an AI-powered "Studio Lighting" feature, along with Huawei-esque scene and object recognition features.

On the rear of the device is a dual camera with two 12MP lenses working in tandem. Storage is expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB). There is a 3,000mAh battery under the hood, with support for 5W charging. The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo on top of MIUI 10.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro will be available in the United Kingdom from 9th November for an off-contract price of £499, which roughly converts to $654.

The Mi 8 Pro ships in a Transparent Titanium finish for £499.

It's set to cost £499.99 in the United Kingdom, and you'll be able to get it exclusively on Three or from a variety of third-party retailers including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse and Xiaomi's new store in London if you're happy to buy the phone outright. The budget fitness tracker, which sold one million units in 17 days in China earlier this year, goes on sale on 9 November for just £26.99.

Xiaomi's Redmi 6A is a lower-end offering; there no full-screen design on offer, with the handset instead packing a 5.45in HD LCD display with a sizable bezel both above and below.

You'll be able to buy the Redmi 6A and a Xiaomi Mi Band 3 for only £99.99 with pre-orders starting on November 9 exclusively at Three.

There's also an NFC model with contactless payments, though having spoken to Xiaomi representatives, there's no news on when that model will come to the UK.It's unlikely to be 2018 from the sounds of it. The Beijing OEM also reaffirmed its plans to open the first Mi store in the region in London's enormous Westfield shopping center on November 18.
