Redmi Teases Note 8 Variant With 8GB RAM, 265 GB Storage Options
The new year will witness several smartphones stepping into the market. Fortunately, 2020 began with the spotting of the Redmi Note 8 8GB RAM variant on TENAA. The Redmi Note 8 was launched in China last year and was brought in the Indian market after two months. At that time, the phone was available only in 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants.
The specific features of Redmi Note 8 include a quad rear camera setup with a 48-megapixel main camera sensor, a waterdrop-style notch display, a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion, up to 128GB onboard storage, and an 18W fast charger inside the box.
The Redmi Note 8 TENAA listing with model number M1908C3JE shows the addition of 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, confirming that we will soon get hold of the upgraded device. Currently, the top-end model is the 6GB RAM + 128GB variant and is priced at Rs. 12,999. We are expecting the price of an 8GB + 256GB model to be more than the current high-end model. Xiaomi, however, is yet to confirm its plan for launching the 8GB RAM variant.
In India, the Redmi Note 8 price is set at Rs. 9,999 for the 4GB + 64GB model. The 6GB + 128GB model, as mentioned, has been priced at Rs. 12,999. The phone is available in Moonlight White, Neptune Blue, and Space Black options on Amazon India, Mi.com, and Mi Home Stores.
In the case of specifications for Redmi Note 8, the device features a 6.39-inch full-HD+ (1080×2280 pixels) screen. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM, and delivers up to 128GB of storage. In the case of camera features, Redmi has added four rear cameras on the Redmi Note 8 – a 48-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.79 aperture, an 8-megapixel wide-angle shooter with 120-degree field of view and f/2.2 aperture, and two 2-megapixel cameras (one macro and one depth) with f/2.4 aperture.
