Would somebody know when Xiaomi will launch the Global Version of the Mi8?
An indication could be how long it took from the initial launch of the Mi Mix 2S till they had the Global Version on the market.

So we cannot buy this version and after when it's released to install eu rom?
The hardware does not change.
So I think it is possible just to flash eu rom after. Don't you ugry?

I would assume you can buy the phone with the CN version and flash EU ROM once it is available.
I think the more elegant solution is to wait for the Global version and to enjoy seamless OTA updates. I am not sure if that works the same once you flashed the phone. But maybe I am wrong.

ok i had the same questions, i'm a french user ! Maybe it's safer to wait a global version. Unfortunately, the prices won't be the same !
Have you news about the explorer version sales in EU ? Thanx

Do you think the price will go under 450€ in the next weeks?
Or when global version released it will go higher?
Regarding the press there have been a few flash sales in China.
The Mi8 seems to be in stock with a handful retailers in China. It seems the supply has not met the demand yet.
I have not read about manufacturing/assembling constrains like Xiaomi had with the Redmi Note 5, when Qualcomm could not deliver sufficient SD chips.
In the past we have seen some price elasticity of supply (=> more supply = lower price). But the sharpest price drops usually happen once a better model is on the market.
