29 August 2019 0

Redmi has launched the much-awaited and much talked about Note 8 series in China. The main highlight is the 64MP camera that the Pro version of the Note 8 carries. Apart from this massive change, the two phones also come with significant upgrades compared to their predecessors.

The Redmi Note 8 and the Note 8 Pro come with quad rear cameras which are placed vertically in a strip-like arrangement. The Redmi Note 8 comes in Dream Blue, Meteorite Black, and White, and the Note 8 Pro will be sold in Pearl White, Ice Emerald, and Electric Light Grey options. Both the phones feature the same-sized waterdrop-style notch and the chin is a bit thick.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro features a 6.53-inch Full HD+ screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, waterdrop-style notch and Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back. It’s powered by MediaTek’s new gaming-focused Helio G90T processor coupled with an 8GB RAM. The device also comes with liquid cooling support in the smartphone to enhance the gaming experience for the Redmi Note 8 Pro users. Other gaming-centric features include the Game Turbo 2.0 mode. Additionally, the company will also be selling a game controller for the phone.

The Redmi Note 8 also houses four cameras at the back but the primary sensor is 48MP and not the 64MP as available in the Pro model. The other sensors include 8MP wide-angle shooter and two 2MP camera sensors. On the front, the device carries a 20MP selfie camera. The Redmi Note 8 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor compared to the Note 8 Pro and it includes a 13MP front-facing camera. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is 30% smaller than the Note 7.


In addition to these phones, the company has also launched a World of Warcraft limited edition of the phone that will come with exclusive goodies, custom themes, and more.
