The company prides itself on replicating the technologies pioneered by its rivals in more affordable handsets, and has swiftly risen to become the fourth-largest smartphone maker globally.

Xiaomi has enjoyed significant growth in the European market in recent years, but it seems the Chinese brand is far from done.

Interestingly, in September 2018, Xiaomi rolled out MIUI update to Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, Mi MIX 2, Mi MIX, Xiaomi Mi 6X, Mi 6X, Mi 5, Mi Note 2, Redmi 6 Pro, Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, Redmi Note 5 and Redmi S2.

Xiaomi, which listed in July and has a market value of about $44 billion, initially targeted other Asian markets for overseas expansion, notably India, where it toppled Samsung as the top smartphone seller earlier this year.

"It features a 6.21" AMOLED display with a notch that pushes a Full HD+ resolution. I only had a small amount of time to use the phone at the launch event, but the display looks decent - if not mind-blowing - with relatively punchy colours and a good level of contrast.

HDR results are especially impressive with the Mi 8 Pro, while Xiaomi has also added some bonus features including a Pro mode.

For taking photos, it packs a 12MP f/1.8 + 12MP f/2.4 dual camera combo at the rear which offers 2X optical zoom and bokeh portrait effects.

Other core specs are pretty standard for a modern flagship, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
