"Also new in the Mi 8 Explorer Edition is an emoji function that allows users to create their own animated emojis based on their facial expressions", Xiaomi says. This one works just like the iPhone X's dual cameras: a main 12-megapixel shooter with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 2x optical zoom lens with f/2.4 aperture.
