The wait is finally over, Xiaomi recently confirmed the launch of the successor to the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The Redmi Note 8 Pro has got a confirmed launch date in India with a dedicated page for the device appearing on Amazon India.

The Redmi Note 8 series already launched in China in late August, giving us all the details about the phone except the price.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro will be the first smartphone in India to run on the MediaTek G90T mobile platform. The MediaTek G90T is engineered for gaming and is a pretty capable chipset, delivering overall performance higher than the Snapdragon 712 SoC. Xiaomi is also offering up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage on the Note 8 Pro.


The biggest highlight on the Redmi Note 8 Pro is the addition of the 64-megapixel primary sensor. The Note 8 Pro will also get three more cameras including an ultra-wide lens, depth, and ultra-macro sensors. The Note 8 Pro also gets a 20-megapixel shooter on the front. The Redmi Note 8 Pro will bring the fight to the Realme XT, at least in the camera department.

Other features on the Redmi Note 8 Pro include a massive 4,500 mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support, Gorilla Glass 5 on the back and front, and a 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with HDR support.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro is priced at around Rs 20,000 in European markets. However, Xiaomi will likely rethink the price before launching the Note 8 Pro in India, and we expect the phone to be priced at around Rs 15K to Rs 16K.

The Amazon page for the Note 8 Pro confirms October 16 launch date but doesn’t give us any information about the release of the vanilla Redmi Note 8.
