Redmi has officially teased its first 64MP camera smartphone to launch on August 29th in China. But a leaked spec-sheet, as well as a price chart that have appeared today, may not leave much for the Chinese smartphone maker to reveal in a couple of days. Here are the leaked prices of the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Gizchina News of the week
Since we already know a lot about the specifications, let’s get to the leaked pricing first. The Note 8 Pro is tipped to start at RMB 1,799 ($252) for the 6GB + 64GB model and the 8GB + 128GB version is said to cost 2099 yuan ($294). The Redmi Note 8, which will offer quad-cameras could be priced at 1199 yuan ($168)
Redmi Note 8 – 4+64 GB = 1199 yuan ($168)
Redmi Note 8 Pro – 6+128 GB = 1799 yuan ($252)
Redmi Note 8 Pro – 8+128 GB = 2099 yuan ($294)
In terms of specifications, it seems the phone won’t come light as its weight is shown to be 199g. It could be, perhaps, because of the larger 4,500mAh battery and the 64MP sensor. Also, the front camera, that has been starved of any attention, looks like a 20MP sensor. There’s QC 4+ 18W fast charging, an IP52 rating, NFC, and a 3.5mm jack. The design of the handset has already leaked extensively so there’s nothing more to say there. We suggest the pricing be viewed with the eyes of sceptic rather than an optimist as there’s nothing to substantiate its authenticity.
Sad to see the return of MTK chipset, however the rest seems great !
