Coming soon: FIMI X8SE 2020 4K drone

Xiaomi FIMI X8 SE 2020 edition

Wee Tsai, a social media representative of Xiaomi, just rumored few photos of the upcoming FIMI X8SE 2020. The pictures show pretty nice upgrades, most of them we hoped for!

Back in 2019, the FIMI X8SE was one of the best Mavic Pro alternatives, but now it has become quite outdated in most aspects. FiMI promises that the new 2020 edition will have longer flight time, extended range, and better image quality. Furthermore, the FIMI X8SE 2020 will feature improved optical flow positioning with up to 30 meters range.

Update: Discount coupon code!!

Just received by email from BG two discount codes for the X8SE 2020. The “BGFIMICN2020” is suitable for the Chinese warehouse, and the “BGFIMIX8SE20” for ES/US/RU/AU warehouses. You have the option to purchase it with or without “FIMI Premium care” services. Update the first 1000 pieces that are offered for only $299!!!! Note: Expected processing time on April 29, 2020.

  1. I don’t get any flight data when I fly with my FIMI X8SE 2020. No distance, altitude, nothing.
    How can I fix this?
    Thanks in advance

  2. Hi guys, I just ordered a Fimi X8 2020, do I need a memory card for 4k video record? What speed and capacity I need?

  3. 2020 edition is shit like its predecessor….I just crashed my FIMI X8SE. It lost communication and it dropped out of the air suddenly…two broken arms and dead gimbal :(

  4. Best GPS drone ever! Built quality, camera performance, flight stability all superlative!
    Flight time is around 25-27 minutes from 100% to 15%.
    The FIMI X8SE 2020 is the absolute DJI Mavic killer :D
    From me it gets 10/10!

  5. no design or battery type change from 2018? how could this 2020 edition have better battery life (flight time)?

  6. so let’s recap: No obstacle avoidance, No 4K@60FPS and almost 1KG. The true is that 2020 version has theoretically, repeat theoretically 2 minutes extra flight time and 3kM plus range which most will never use it if you fly LoS…

  7. they switched from “pre-order” to “stock alert” do you know how can I use in this case the FIMI X8SE 2020 coupon codes???

  8. Just bought xiaomi 2 days ago hoping it’s the 2020. Version got spare wings bag bought them separately expected in ten days if it’s not the new version I wont even open it I will put it on eBay at £460 with the fimi x8 se Original bag plus new red propellers all unused
