Dear MIUI Fans!


This tutorial is to guide you based on the official specs released by Xiaomi regarding the Mi 8 Pro and the Mi 8 Explorer Edition as many are confused with its striking similarity and confusing with each other. Many are mistaking one for the other, here is my complete guide on how to distinguish it from each other.

Here is the official specs sheet of the Mi 8 Pro Transparent Edition:

https://www.mi.com/mi8ud/specs/

While here is the complete specs sheet of the Mi 8 Explorer Edition:

https://www.mi.com/mi8te/specs/

While the physical phone itself is exactly the same as each other as this bluepirnt has shown us

The LTE bands, Camera Specs, SoC, Screen Size, RAM and Storage Config are all the same based on my careful checking.

There are some difference on how to spot the main determining factor:

1. The My Device Specs Sheet

6. Price
