In quest to boost their business in Africa, Xiaomi made an entry into the Nigerian market with the launch of Xiaomi Note 7 device. To keep the business going, the company plans to launch another Android powered smartphone in the country; Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro.
They posted a teaser about the smartphone that says “coming soon” on their twitter page for Nigeria. Although no particular date was mentioned for the launching, we have been able to gather that the device will be unveiled on 28th of October.
Redmi Note 8 Pro Specs Rundown
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro comes running on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box which is customized with the company’s MIUI 10 on top. On the inside is a 4500 mAh battery with fast charge technology 18w.
The phone has a 6.53 inches display with 1080 by 2340 pixels resolution. The device is protected by gorilla glass 5 both on the front and on the back.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is equipped with 6GB RAM coupled with a 64GB ROM for the basic version, there is also a 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM version of the device and a bigger 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM variant, the internal storage can be expanded up to 256GB using a micro SD card but there is no dedicated slot for the SD card.
We probably expect the 6GB RAM/64GB ROM version to launch in NIgeria but anyways, the device treats you to a MediaTek Helio G90T (12 nm) chipset with Octa-core (2×2.05 GHz Cortex-A76 & 6×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) processor.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro phone comes with a quad camera setup on the back – featuring a primary 64MP main camera with 8MP ultra wide sensor, 2MP dedicated sensor and another 2MP sensor for image depth which promises optimum exposure and depth effects. The camera system is supported by a ring flash for quality output.
