Here is another iPhone X look alike smartphone with great specs and low cost. Xiaomi Mi 8 is designed having a dual rear camera with the LED flashlight in between them, it has a four sided curved glass body making it look awesome and pleasing to the eyes, well rounded corners with a customized water drop curve also. The design really looks great.

The display is protected using a Gorilla glass 5 which is scratch resistant but not 100% and 2.5D curved glass is adopted to give the front a good look that matches the notch design.

Both cameras are 12MP, the one above has a wide angle lens with four axis optical stabilizer and a f/1.8 aperture, while the camera below has a telephoto lens, a portrait camera lens and a f/2.4 wide aperture.
