Redmi Note 8 And Note 8 Pro Will Feature Helio G90T Gaming SoC
Redmi, the Xiaomi subsidiary, has seen massive success across the Asian market with its smartphone offerings. The company was founded to penetrate markets with affordable devices that carried noteworthy specs. It holds true even in India where its Note series devices are one of the annual best selling smartphones. Now, its latest entry in the series, Note 8 and Note 8 Pro, have some of its rumours confirmed.
Redmi Note 8 Series
Previously, we had reported on the Redmi Note 8 Pro sporting the gaming centric SoC named Helio G90T. But, the company has now confirmed that the entire Note 8 series will sport the new chipset. The MediaTek mobile CPU was announced back in July which a Redmi executive confirmed will be featured on an upcoming smartphone soon. Although the name wasn’t announced back then rumours had already pointed towards the new Note 8 series.
What We Know So Far
Earlier this month, we had also covered reports that have since been confirmed. The Redmi Note 8 Pro will feature a quad camera setup with a primary sensor being a 64MP camera. On the other hand, the base Note 8 will probably feature a 48MP sensor. The 64MP shooter on the Note 8 Pro is also confirmed to be Samsung’s ISOCELL GW1 sensor. The device will be one of the first to feature the newly unveiled camera module from the South Korean giant alongside Realme XT.
It is yet to be confirmed if the Note 8 series will house a fingerprint sensor on the back or an in-display scanner under an AMOLED panel. Furthermore, it is rumoured that NFC connectivity will finally arrive to the mid-range devices. Unfortunately, finer details like RAM, storage and other features are still a mystery so we will have to wait for an official announcement. The device will be unveiled on 29th August 2019 so stay tuned for more updates.
