  • Xiaomi Redmi 6 64GB Storage Model Redmi 6 Pro Available on Open Sale in India

The two new phones will become the latest addition to the Mi 8 family here alongside the titular model which was launched in Malaysia back in August.

Smartphones have remained at its core since its 2010 founding in Zhongguancun - China's Silicon Valley - and sales have skyrocketed, making Xiaomi the world's fourth-largest smartphone vendor at the end of past year, according to International Data Corp. That could soon be changing, however, as following a recent expansion into Spain and Italy, Xiaomi has now officially launched in the UK. You can also grab Full HD video at 120FPS.

As for Mi 8 Lite, the 4GB/64GB variant will be made available for RM 999 through Mi Official Store on Shopee starting from 10 November.

The Chinese brand revealed the Redmi 6A, Mi 8 and Mi 8 Pro as the first phones that will hit the market. It comes in Transparent Titanium color and will be available through Three, Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse, Currys PC World, Very, Mobile Phones Direct, Katana and Mi.com.

The Mi 8 Pro originally debuted in China this May, and it's easily the most exciting of the bunch. We've also produced a tips and tricks guide to help you get started with your Mi 8 Pro.

The gunman was tall and wearing all black with a hood and his face partly covered, witnesses told TV stations. Long's high school track coach said he physically assaulted her his senior year, but she never filed charges.


What we know about the California mass shooting
The hooded killer used a smoke bomb and a handgun, sending hundreds of people fleeing in terror. Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told reporters Thursday that Long had served in Afghanistan.


Still, unlike Huawei, Xiaomi was not founded by a veteran of China's armed forces and sells handsets instead of telecom infrastructure so there may be less cause for concern.

As for video, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro's dual-lens camera can shoot up to 4K resolution footage.

During the announcement, Xiaomi said there would be a "limited number" of people able to bag the £20 discount, however, it did not specify the exact numbers.

Xiaomi's entry into the United Kingdom follows its arrival in France and Italy this May, and the official entry last November into Spain, its first Western European market, where it had already become the third largest smartphone vendor.

'We are thrilled to make great strides by announcing our arrival in the UK. As of today, Xiaomi is now sold in 74 markets worldwide.
