Mi 8 SE is one of the first phones to run on a Snapdragon 710 chipset, which is aimed to fill the gap between premium and mid-range processors. Along with that, the phone also comes with either 4GB RAM or 6GB of RAM, tagged alongside 64GB of storage. It also carries a 5.88-inch Full HD+ AMOLED notched display at the front and a 3,120mAh battery underneath its hood.

The Mi 8 SE also features dual rear cameras with 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors. There is also a 20-megapixel selfie shooter at the front. The phone is likely to come in four colors (blue, red, gold and black) and will feature Android 8.1 layered with the latest MIUI 10 on top.
