HIGHLIGHTS
  • Redmi Note 8’s quad camera setup will be aligned vertically
  • The phone may sport an in-display fingerprint scanner
  • It is also seen to sport a white-coloured gradient back panel finish

    New Redmi Note 8 details have surfaced online ahead of the smartphone’s launch. Teasers published on the company’s official Weibo page suggest that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 processor, a step above the Snapdragon 660 SoC found on the Redmi Note 7S. Furthermore, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing shared camera samples of the Redmi Note 8 while also confirming that the phone will sport a quad camera setup, just like Redmi Note 8 Pro, but it will be equipped with a 48-megaixel main sensor instead of the 64-megapixel primary shooter present on the Pro model.

    Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand took to Weibo to announce that the Redmi Note 8 will also come with a quad rear camera setup aligned vertically and a dual-LED flash sitting beside the cameras. The post suggests that the phone will sport a 48-megapixel main sensor, a super wide-angle camera, depth of field sensor, and a super macro lens.

    The photo shared alongside the teaser shows the Redmi Note 8 back panel, and there’s no rear fingerprint sensor seen. This could mean that the phone may sport an in-display fingerprint sensor. The image also shows that the phone will sport a White gradient panel finish but it should come in other colour models as well at launch
