Xiaomi launched in 20219 a Redmi Note 8 which became a sales success and now the brand relaunches the device with just a couple of changes inside to try to repeat the play. Although it is officially presented tomorrow, the device already appears on the Xiaomi website so we can calmly give it as official.
Even though that him Xiaomi mobile It has not been launched, it is already on sale in the Global version, although we still have to know the price that, we imagine, will be revealed tomorrow at this time. However, thanks to its non-ready appearance of the brand, we already know that the Redmi Note 8 2021 changes compared to the original model are minimal.
These are the news of the new Redmi Note 8
The first peculiarity of the mobile is that it is available for sale with MIUI 12.5 as an operating system, based on Android 11, a software that, until now, is only available for the occasional high-end Xioami. Obviously, the smartphone is not on sale with MIUI 12.5 ready to use but the brand has decided to launch the update immediately because as soon as you take it out of the box you will have the OTA notice waiting to install the MIUI version
Other changes have to do with the processor, the Bluetooth module, and the screen refresh rate. To be more precise, the brand has gone from housing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 in the old model to a MediaTek Helio G85. In addition, the screen goes from 60Hz to 120Hz and the Bluetooth module goes from 5.0 to 5.2.
