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.
