Now that Xiaomi Mi 8 is official, I am sure the Mi Fans are already thinking about laying out the red carpet on its arrival in India (if and when that happens). But there are a few handsets already available here that may not give it such a warm welcome. Here are the top five smartphones that we believe will give the new Xiaomi flagship a hard time in India.
Both Xiaomi Mi 8 and OnePlus 6 have certain similarities – a 19:9 Full HD+ screen with a notch and Corning Gorilla Glass protection, Android 8.1-based software and Snapdragon 845 SoC. As for the camera, the OnePlus 6 has a higher megapixel count of 16MP+20MP for the dual rear cameras as compared to the 12MP+12MP combination on the Mi 8. But that may not necessarily make it better than the Mi 8 when it comes to real-world performance. OnePlus 6 also has an 8GB RAM option, unlike the Mi 8. One big advantage, OnePlus 6 retains a 3.5mm audio jack, unlike the Mi 8.
