Xiaomi Mi 8 Youth Edition and the Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition were made official by the Chinese phone maker on Wednesday at a launch event in China. The former is a toned down version of the flagship Mi 8 with a Snapdragon 660 SoC, downgraded rear camera setup, and almost half the price. The Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition, on the other hand, is similar to the Mi 8 in terms of specifications but has a pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint sensor instead of the rear-mounted one on the original Mi 8.
Lusting for those new, larger and spiffier iPhones? The time to move is now.
Wednesday's Apple announcement is sending iPhone fans scrambling to stores and their favorite online retail sites, hoping to be among the first to get their hands on the new products. The tech giant unveiled new versions of some of its most popular gadgets, including a new Apple watch and, of course, the iPhone XS. Apple CEO Tim Cook told the crowd in Cupertino that the company is "going to take iPhone X to the next level - I'm excited to show you what is by far the most advanced iPhone we have ever created.”
Apple was still selling 2015's iPhone 6s until last week. Then it announced three new phones and made the iPhone 7 its entry-level mobile device. There are likely tens of millions of iPhone 6s devices out there still, but last year's buggy iOS 11 update made the device, as well as other older iPhones, start showing their age.
The radical changes came with the iPhone X last year. So, while the elegant new iPhone XS Max that I’ve been testing since Wednesday (along with the XS) has, by far, the largest display and is the most expensive and best iPhone ever, Apple’s latest handsets, good as they are, don’t move the needle all that much.
