Xiaomi confirms it's working on Redmi Note 8 2021 version
Xiaomi confirmed this officially through a tweet announcing that it has sold over 25 million units of the Redmi Note 8.
Xiaomi has been rumoured of working on a 2021 model of its Redmi Note 8 smartphone. The company confirmed this officially through a tweet announcing that it has sold over 25 million units of the Redmi Note 8.
Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 back in 2019, and we're currently on the Redmi Note 10 series. So it's quite surprising that Xiaomi would bring back an old phone in a new avatar. But it looks like the company wants to ride on the success of the Redmi Note 8 that is still quite popular. Xiaomi hasn't revealed anything about the Redmi Note 8 2021 other than confirming the phone's existence. But we do have some details about the phone thanks to a recent leak.
A Xiaomi phone with the model number M1908C3JGG was spotted on the FCC website by leaker Kacper Skrzypek. The FCC listing revealed that the Redmi Note 8 2021 will be powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 processor paired with 128GB of internal storage. The smartphone is said to pack a 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support.
Redmi Note 8 2021 will also run MIUI 12.5 out-of-the-box. Redmi Note 8 2021 is also expected to feature a 48-megapixel quad-camera, and it will most likely have a water drop display. Xiaomi is reportedly developing the phone for select markets including the EU and Russia. The tweet was made by Xiaomi's global Twitter account so it's likely that the phone will launch in Europe. There's no word on its India launch yet.
