During the launch, Xiaomi had hinted that the Mi 8 could be sold outside China as well. While the phone has been a sell out in China during multiple flash sales, it has made its way to France and Russia already.
Reports now suggest that the Mi 8 will be launched in Europe in August. There are rumors that Xiaomi will only introduce the 6GB RAM variant of Mi 8. It is said that Xiaomi will launch MI 8 with 64GB and 128GB internal storage options. The 8GB RAM variant may be introduced if there is enough demand of the device.
