Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer: Xiaomi says his about the transparent cover

Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition 2

Lo Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer, the "real" flagship presented during the event of the last 31 May, has resulted since the launch a quite controversial product. Beyond the notch, the Face ID and the sensor integrated into the display, one of the most talked about news - paradoxically - was the alleged back cover transparent.

An unprecedented aesthetic choice by the brand and that has generated a lot of discussion. While users and professionals are wondering if this cover is actually transparent or not, finally Xiaomi she came into play and decided to tell her about it.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer: the official position of the company about the back cover

The cover of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer really shows the components that are inside the smartphone? Or was a sticker (or perhaps another panel) applied that shows an untruthful configuration and serves only as an aesthetic element?

According to what was officially declared by the Chinese company, what we see below the transparent glass ... it is precisely the components of the flagship! Xiaomi reported that the internal structure was redesigned - and the components "decorated" - in order to obtain a pleasing visual pattern.

Moreover - even if it has not been explicitly mentioned - it is possible that some more delicate components - such as the processor - in addition to adding the aforementioned decoration, be covered with a further protective layer (perhaps against the sun's rays). What do you think of this "revelation"? Satisfied?
