Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 lineup on August 29. The Redmi Note 8 lineup includes – Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro. Earlier today Redmi announced the global sales of the Redmi Note 8 series have passed 10 million units for 3 months. This means that an average 110,000 units were sold every day for three months.
This is great for Redmi, breaking the 10 million sales record a whole month quicker than the Redmi Note 7 did. To celebrate the massive fulfilment, the company is discounting the Redmi Note 8 on its website, but it is just the 6/128 GB option and only in China.
Coming to the specifications, the Redmi Note 8 comes with a 6.39-inch FHD+ LCD display and Snapdragon 665. There’s a quad-camera setup at the back featuring a 48MP f/1.79 aperture lens, an 8MP 120° wide-angle shooter, a 2MP macro camera and another 2MP depth sensor. It’s an excellent device, and it’s no surprise that it’s doing so well.
On the other hand, the Redmi Note 8 Pro features a 6.53-inch IPS LCD display with a waterdrop notch. It comes with an Helio G90T processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. A 64MP camera sits on the back of the phone along with an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. It also features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, IR blaster, audio jack, NFC, and a 4500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charge.
In addition to this, Xiaomi says it will focus on the Redmi K30 announcement, scheduled for tomorrow. Though we aren’t sure what exactly we’ll see. We are expecting the first 5G device of the sub-brand, along with a full-screen experience and punch-hole design with dual cameras.
We are likely going to see a Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 Pro, with only the latter supporting next-gen connectivity and probably quicker fast-charging options.
