Redmi Note 8 (2021)

Last week, a new variant of the Redmi Note 8 – Redmi Note 8 2021 made a surprising appearance on the FCC certification website. It was quite surprising given the fact that the company released Redmi Note 10 series devices a couple of months back. Today, Xiaomi has officially confirmed that the Note 8 2021 exists, and the company is launching it to celebrate a milestone. Earlier today, the company announced that it has sold 200million units of the Redmi Note series smartphones worldwide. Xiaomi shared that it sold more than 25 million units of the Redmi Note 8 since its launch in 2019.

Redmi Note 8 2021 Edition: What we know so far?

Last week, Redmi Note 8 2021 made an appearance on FCC revealing some key specifications of the device. The smartphone will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, the same processor that powers Redmi Note 8’s successor – Redmi Note 9. The FCC listing also revealed that the upcoming Note 8 2021 Edition will pack 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast-charging. FCC listing also confirmed that the smartphone will boot MIUI 12.5, which should be based on Android 11.

Earlier this week, the upcoming Note 8 2021 Edition appeared on Bluetooth SIG certification revealing the model number M1908C3JGG. Leaks and rumors on the web claim that the Note 8 2021 Edition will have codename biloba, and will offer a 48MP quad-rear camera setup. The smartphone is said to be offered in two variants, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 128GB storage.

We can expect the upcoming Note 8 2021 Edition to feature a design similar to that of Redmi Note 8, and Redmi Note 8T. That means we could see an FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch. The Note 8 2021 Edition will be a budget smartphone, so we can expect it to be priced around USD 180 in international markets, and around Rs. 10,000, if Xiaomi at all plans to release it in India. Rumors say that the smartphone will not make it to the Indian market.

We can expect Xiaomi to announce the launch date of the upcoming Note 8 2021 in the coming weeks. But, before that the smartphone should appear on certification websites, and if that happens, we will make sure to update our readers. What do you think of the Redmi Note 8 2021 Edition?
