When it releases in Hong Kong market you will knowWould 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.
Regarding the press there have been a few flash sales in China.Do you think the price will go under 450€ in the next weeks?
Or when global version released it will go higher?
If phone not support this band ( not have) not possible unlock and dont matter what You flash china miui or global or xiaomi.eu will not support...
If having a phone in english with chinese apps, and if you know how to unlock a bootloader and flash a new ROM, you should definitely buy it. Otherwise, you should wait. And it's not the firmware that you should change, but the recovery and the rom.What would an expert suggest. Shall I wait for the release of the global version or I can go on and buy an MI8 with English-Chinese and change the firmware ?
Would the automatic update work with the new firmware or from this point always just manually ?
Yes because, they are using Chinese version to hack to global version ! Waiting for mine, hope it will come quickly !I bought Mi8 Global from Ali******* and to my surprise it came unlocked out of the box today when i recieved it. I Love the specs and thought for a 6.2 phone it would be larger than my Mix 2. I will have to get used to the notch, i now have 256 gigs to use up but the Mix2 is still the more beautiful phone.
