It appears that this won’t be the only thing in common between the Mi 8 and iPhone X.
A new image posted on the Chinese social media website, Weibo reveals an alleged prototype of the Xiaomi Mi 8. The image shows a smartphone in line with many rumours and renders, with an iPhone X style notch thin [...]
