Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Highlights and Overview

Xiaomi Redmi Note is the direct successor of last year’s Note 7, and as you would expect, almost everything has seen upgrades. From its display to CPU and even, to a whole quad camera setup at the back. But the display remains a 6.3-inch Full-HD+ display, with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution, with a Waterdrop notch above the screen.

On the inside, there’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa-core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz, along with Adreno 610 GPU, 4/6 GB RAM, and either 32/64/128 GB of built-in storage. The Redmi Note also comes with a storage expansion option, to the tone of 256GB via SD card.

On the camera department, you are getting 4-camera sensors at the back, a combination of a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle secondary sensor, along with two auxiliary sensors of 2-megapixels each, one, as a dedicated macro lens, and the other, to serve as a depth sensor. If pixel count is your thing, then check out the Redmi Note 8 Pro which houses a larger 64-megapixel main sensor.

There’s a physical fingerprint sensor placed at the back, and yes, the Note 8 comes with dual Nano-SIM with support for 4G LTE network on SIMs. It is powered by a 4000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging via USB Type-C interface, and boot Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
