Xiaomi Redmi Note 8, Note 8 Pro Pricing Leaked Before Launch
Chinese technology giant Xiaomi has announced that it will launch two new smartphones under its Redmi sub-brand on the 29th of August. These devices are confirmed to be the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro and will be the successors of the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro announced earlier this year. A few weeks before the official launch, the company has been revealing details about the handsets by a series of teasers. While most of the information about them was known, their pricing remained shrouded in mystery. Until now, as a tipster from China has seemingly leaked the alleged pricing of the Redmi Note 8 series.
Redmi Note 8 Series Pricing
As mentioned above, the pricing for the upcoming Redmi Note 8 Series, which consists of the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro has been leaked. According to an image shared by a gadget tipster in China, the Redmi Note 8 will start at CNY 1199 (INR 12,000) for the variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The image also suggests that it will be the only configuration the smartphone will be available in.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro, on the other hand, will be available in two storage variants. It will be priced starting CNY 1799 (INR 18,000) for the 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage configuration. The top-end variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard memory will be priced at CNY 2099 (INR 21,000). Notably, the pricing for both devices is significantly more than their predecessors. It is thus expected that they are taken with a grain of salt as they may turn out to be false.
Past reports of the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro have revealed most of their key specifications. Both the smartphones are expected to have a glass sandwich design with a waterdrop notch on top of the display. While the regular Note 8 will run on the Snapdragon 665 SoC, the Pro variant has been confirmed to be kitted with the latest MediaTek Helio G90 chipset. Both devices are also affirmed to have a Quad Camera setup, out of which the primary lens will be a 48MP sensor on the Redmi Note 8 and a 64MP sensor on the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Since China launch for the Redmi Note 8 Series is drawing close, so we will not have to wait too long to confirm the details.
