After the remarkable response of its Redmi Note 7 Series, Xiaomi has just announced their Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 pro in Beijing today.
The Redmi Note 8 Series will be Xiaomi’s eighth-generation of Redmi Note devices which have always been pocket-friendly all-around devices.
Pricing & Launch:
The Redmi Note 8 base variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage will start somewhere around 10,000 INR. Two other variants, a 6 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage and a 6 GB RAM with 128 GB storage will be released which might be priced at around 12,000 INR and 14,000 INR respectively.
The elder brother, Redmi Note 8 Pro is expected to be priced around 14,000 INR for the base, 6 GB RAM with 64 GB storage variant, also 16,000 INR for the 6 GB RAM with 128 GB storage and finally 18,000 INR for the top 8 GB RAM with 128 GB storage variant (approximately).
All the devices will go on sale in China from next month, so we can expect the devices to be launched in India just before the festive season.
Redmi Note 8 Specifications:
The younger brother, Redmi Note 8 features a 6.3-inch LCD with Full HD+ resolution.
The phone runs on the Snapdragon 665 SoC, just like we saw in Realme 5.
The Note 8 houses a quad-camera setup, the primary being a 48 MP with the newest Samsung ISOCELL GM2 sensor. The other three cameras are- an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 2 MP dedicated macro camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor.
The front or the selfie camera is a 13 MP shooter, which is inside the tiny notch centred on the top of the device.
After all these things, the phone also made enough room to house a 4000 mAh battery.
The Redmi Note 8 will by far, be one of the best devices in the market it is going to enter.
Redmi Note 8 Pro Specifications:
The Note 8 Pro features a 6.53-inch full HD+ display. Gorilla Glass protection is present on this one.
Xiaomi went with the MediaTek processor instead of a Qualcomm Snapdragon in this one.
The Note 8 Pro is the first phone to run the Helio G90T processor which is full of features like HyperEngine and Game Turbo 2.0 mode for gaming. This chipset also brings improved network speed and lower touch latency.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro has also become the first Redmi Note-device to use the liquid cooling technology.
A feature to connect the phone to both, Wi-Fi and mobile data at the same time, to provide a seamless gaming experience is also seen in this one.
The Note 8 Pro houses a quad-camera setup on the back.
With the 64 MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 as the rear primary shooter, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is precisely the first official smartphone with a 64 MP camera in the world.
Other cameras are- an 8MP wide-angle sensor, 2 MP depth sensor, and 2 MP macro camera.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro has a 20MP selfie camera embedded in its U-shaped notch.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro comes with a huge 4500 mAh battery which is something to appreciate.
The competition was already tough in the budget and mid-range segments and this release sure made it a lot tougher.
