Redmi Note 8 was launched back in 2019 and later, it became one of the best-selling smartphones in the Redmi Note lineup. Now, the company is gearing up to launch a new version of the device that will be called Redmi Note 8 2021.
Xiaomi has posted a new tweet which confirms the existence of Redmi Note 8 2021. The device will launch globally, but the launch date is still a mystery. Xiaomi has already launched Redmi Note 9 series and Note 10 series and therefore, bringing the Redmi Note 8 2021 is a bit unusual and at the same, a surprise entry.
Last week, the upcoming Redmi Note 8 2021 appeared on FCC certification with some key specifications. It revealed that the phone has MediaTek Helio G85 processor, a 4,000mAh battery, 22.5W fast charging, and Android-11 based MIUI 12.5 skin. The original model has Snapdragon 665 chipset, which has nearly the same performance as of Helio G85. So, there is no major upgrade in terms of processor, despite changing the chipset vendor.
Most of the specifications, design, and pricing of Redmi Note 8 2021 is currently a mystery. Since the arrival is confirmed, we can expect more details to surface online in the coming days. Then, we’ll have a more clear picture of the new upgrades.
