Compatibility with Xiaomi Mi8

Hello,

 

Does anyone know if Public Mobile is compatible with Xiaomi Mi8? I have looked through the compatibility list but only saw Xiaomi Mi6 and earlier models. Can someone confirm on why Mi8 may not work? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Check frequencies on the model you you have

To make calls it will need umts 850 and 1900.

Here is @RobertQc answer to frequency question

Who was your previous provider?

Re: Compatibility with Xiaomi Mi8

Check the phone specs.

Public Mobile uses the following frequency bands:

  • 4G LTE and LTE Advanced: 700 MHz, 850 MHz, 1900 MHz and 2100 MHz downlink and 1700 MHz uplink (AWS).
  • HSPA: 850 MHz, 1900 MHz (UMTS).

Please note that this information is indicative only. Your phone's compatibility with our 4G or 4G LTE networks is based on the radio frequencies of your phone. Public Mobile does not guarantee that your phone will work on our mobile network.

In general, it should be ok if you have their Global version.
