Highlights
  • Redmi Note 8 is tipped to pack a 64-megapixel rear camera
  • The phone will come equipped with a battery larger than 4,000mAh
  • Its screen-to-body ratio will be higher than Redmi Note 7

A few days ago, a concept-based render of the Redmi Note 8 surfaced online, alongside teasers from the Xiaomi sub-brand’s General Manager himself regarding an upcoming phone packing a 64-megapixel camera. The Xiaomi executive has now spilled the beans on a few Redmi Note 8 details such as a high screen-to-body ratio, larger battery compared to its predecessor, and most importantly, better image quality. Moreover, a pair of alleged live images of the Redmi Note 8 sporting a glossy black finish have surfaced online, giving us our first look at the upcoming phone.

Starting with product details, the Redmi executive shared in his Weibo post that the Redmi Note 8 will deliver more clear images, something which can be attributed to the phone’s 64-megapixel primary camera. To recall, Weibing recently shared a short video about an upcoming Redmi smartphone that has been in production for a while now, and will feature a quad rear camera setup consisting of a 64-megapixel sensor. The sensor in question is the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1, which was recently confirmed by Xiaomi as the main snapper on one of its upcoming phones, heavily rumoured to be the Redmi Note 8.

Additionally, the Redmi General Manager also mentioned that the Redmi Note 8 will offer a longer battery life, which indicates that the upcoming phone might pack a bigger battery than the 4,000mAh juicer inside its predecessor. Lastly, he also mentions that the in-hand feel of the Redmi Note 8 is good and that the screen-to-body ratio of the phone is also higher than the Redmi Note 7, which means we are either looking at a smaller notch or a full-screen display achieved by employing a pop-up selfie camera module.
