After the success of the Redmi Note 7 series it appears that Xiaomi has already started working on the Redmi Note 8 series of phones. Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has confirmed the existence of the Redmi Note 8.
Redmi Note 7 series gained wide popularity globally including India. In India, Xiaomi managed to ship 5 million units of Redmi Note 7 series as of August. After the success of the Redmi Note 7 series it appears that Xiaomi has already started working on the Redmi Note 8 series of phones. Notably, this is no rumour as Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has confirmed the existence of the Redmi Note 8. In addition to the phone, Weibing has also confirmed some specs of the upcoming Redmi Note 8.
Weibing took to the Chinese microblogging site — Weibo — to reveal details of the Redmi Note 8. Interestingly Weibing used the Redmi Note 8 to share the post on Weibo. In the post he writes that the Redmi Note 8 will come with much-upgraded cameras when compared to the Redmi Note 7 series. To recall the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with 48MP camera setup on the back. This somewhat hints that the Redmi Note 8 may be the 64MP Redmi phone that the company has been teasing for a while now.
In the same Weibo post Weibing notes that the Redmi Note 8 will come with a much bigger battery and screen-to-body ratio when compared to the Redmi Note 7 series. Both the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes packed with a 4000mAh battery setup and deliver great battery life on a single charge. In the same post Weibing also says that the hand-feel of the Redmi Note 8 will be much better when compared to the Redmi Note 7.
Alongside the Redmi Note 8 series the company is also working on Redmi 64MP camera phone. Redmi previously confirmed that the Redmi 64MP camera phone will come with quad cameras on the back panel. Last week Weibing posted a video of the Redmi 64MP camera phone and revealed that the smartphone is in mass production already and should launch very soon. Xiaomi India has also confirmed to launch the 64MP Redmi phone soon. Redmi is yet to confirm whether the 64MP camera phone is actually the Redmi Note 8 or not. As noted earlier it is possible that the 64MP camera Redmi phone may actually be the Redmi Note 8. Xiaomi is yet to confirm this information.
On August 21 Xiaomi India is gearing up to launch the first Mi series phone in the country aka the Mi A3. Xiaomi has confirmed that the Mi A3 will be available on Amazon India website. It is expected that Xiaomi will launch the international variant of the Mi A3 in India.
