Redmi Note 8 Pro Details
The Redmi Note 8 Pro has a lot of highlights you wouldn’t anticipate in a phone this affordable – there’s a large Full HD+ display, a 64MP main camera with three other shooters, huge battery, and a gaming-centric powerful chipset. So the phone has plenty of features and starts at Rs. 26,999, makes it an even more appealing bargain.
Design and Display
Note 8 Pro is surely the most-attractive Redmi Note phone to date. Xiaomi took a purposive choice to entirely revamp the aesthetics with the launch of Redmi Note 7 Pro. While the Note 7 Pro yet seems pretty classy, Xiaomi has chosen to step up with the design and build of the Note 8 Pro. The phone features a stunning curved glass back that makes the phone look a lot more premium than its price tag would propose.
The phone packs 6.53 inches IPS LCD panel with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. There is a tiny punch-hole cutout at the center top of the screen for a selfie camera. The large display on the handset is really good for viewing content, social media, and more. And of course, the phone doesn’t carry high refresh rate display as seen on Realme 6 Pro or Poco X2.
Hardware and Performance
Redmi has made some shit this time with the chipset. The company has used Mediatek Helio G90T SoC which the MediaTek calls it a gaming-centric mid-range processor. This chipset goes with the game pretty snappy if we didn’t boost the graphics too high. You can still play games like PUBG mobile, COD in maximum graphics. Besides, there is an Adreno 618 GPU undertaking graphics tasks. On the software front, the phone runs on MIUI 11 based on Android 10.0.
For the memory, you’ll get either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. For the storage you’re getting two options as well, 64 or 128GB of internal storage which is of course expandable.
The phone shines in this department as well. There is a quad-camera setup at the back that includes a 64MP sensor along with 8MP ultrawide shooter, a 2 MP depth sensor as well as a 2MP macro sensor. The 64MP camera captures good-looking images when you use it in a well-lit setting, so if you like snapping pictures outdoors or in natural settings is always fun with this massive 64MP snapper. Do not expect too good images with other lenses here.
For the selfie, you’ve 20MP front-facing camera, which is a high-res snapper for a budget phone, and the pictures from that camera are also good enough. You can shoot 4K videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 30/60/120fps with the primary camera. It is also equipped with gyro EIS for stability in videos.
Battery, Connectivity and Others
Redmi Note 8 Pro has a sizeable 4,500mAh, which is now common in many mid-range phones. The phone easily lasts for a day from a full charge, possibly even making you partway into the second day before you need to plug in again. For the charging, the phone supports 18W fast charging, which is average for a phone at this price.
The handset has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner which is also found in Realme 5 Pro.
