Mi 9 Pro 5G and Redmi 8 Color, Storage Variants

According to our source, Ishan Agarwal, the Mi 9 Pro 5G will be available in two colors: Dream White and Titanium Black. The flagship smartphone will be offered in two memory configurations in the Chinese market: 8GB RAM + 256GB storage and 12GB RAM + 256GB storage.

The Mi 9 Pro 5G is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ octa-core processor under the hood. It is also rumored to have a 6.39-inch AMOLED panel with a waterdrop notch design and a triple-camera setup on the back featuring a 48-megapixel primary sensor. Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G is also tipped to come with a 4000mAh battery with 40W wired fast charging and 30W wireless fast charging.

The Redmi 8, on the other hand, will come in four attractive color options: Phantom Red, Fairy Green, Carbon Ash, and Sapphire Blue. Similar to the Mi 9 Pro 5G, however, the Redmi 8 will come in just two memory configurations. The base variant of the phone will have 3GB of RAM coupled with 32GB internal storage, while the more expensive version will include 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

While specifications of the Redmi 8A were recently revealed thanks to TENAA, the key features of the Redmi 8 still remain a mystery. We expect it to be similar to the Redmi 8A in a few areas, although it is likely to have a faster processor and a dual-camera setup on the back. Under the hood, the Redmi 8 will likely have a massive 5,000mAh battery.
