Redmi Note 8 3GB+32GB Variant Reportedly Launched in India Via Offline Stores: Price, Specs


Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro a little while ago in India. So far, both the devices have received a pretty positive response from the customers. That said, there have been many who are yet to taste the latest Note devices because of the much-dreaded flash sales the devices are currently being sold in. This, however, does not appear to be the case for much longer now. As it turns out, there are several offline retail stores in the country which have already started selling both the devices. To make things even more interesting, we are getting the 3GB/32GB variant of the Redmi Note 8 offline which is not even being sold offline. If the recent report for 91Mobiles has to be believed, the 3GB/32GB variant of the Redmi Note 8 will be sold as an offline exclusive in India.

Redmi Note 8 3GB+32GB variant price in India

The 3GB/32GB variant of the Redmi Note 8 is priced at INR 9,799 in India which is just INR 200 lesser than the price of the 4GB/64GB variant of the device which is being sold online. Clearly, it will boil down to the availability of the devices here.
