Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone will be launched on May 31. With the confirmation on the upcoming launch, it is also presumed that the Chinese company has no plans to bring the Mi 7 as the successor to its last year’s Mi 6 – instead, it appears to be skipping an iteration by launching the Mi 8 to celebrate its eighth anniversary.

A box package and a screen protector tipping the launch of the smartphone had already surfaced on the Web.

The Beijing-headquartered company is also rumoured to be building its proprietary 3D facial sensing technology to take on Apple’s Face ID.

As confirmed by a teaser image posted on Weibo, the Xiaomi Mi 8 launch is taking place in Shenzhen, China.

Xiaomi Global spokesperson Donovan Sung, in a separate tweet on Tuesday, highlighted that the new launch is aimed to mark the company’s eighth anniversary. “To celebrate our 8th year anniversary, we’ll be launching Mi 8 at our annual flagship product launch in Shenzhen on May 31,

Considering the past rumours, the Xiaomi Mi 8 is speculated to come with a notch design and have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC along with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of onboard storage.
