Xiaomi’s Redmi line just stepped it up a notch with the launch of the Redmi Note 8 Pro in China.
The newest Redmi Note uses the 64 MP camera setup that’s all the rage now and pairs it with a massive 4,500 mAh battery for a price that’s going to surprise you quite a bit.
The back sports four sensors, the 64 MP one from Samsung alongside an 8 MP wide sensor, a 2 MP depth sensor and a 2 MP macro one. Looking at those numbers, you might be underwhelmed to see the selfie shooter with “just” 12 MP and an f/2.0 aperture.
The processing power of this 6.53-inch FULL HD+ sporting phone is handled by a Mediatek Helio G90T chip paired with either 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM.
For storage, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is available with either 65 GB or 128 GB.
To nod at gamers, Xiaomi also included Game Turbo 2.0 mode for improved performance, alongside liquid cooling.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro 6 GB / 64 GB will retail for $220 (RMB 1,399) and the upgrade to 8 GB / 128 GB will be sold for $250 (RMB 1,799), which is surprisingly low considering that camera setup.
The smartphone will start shipping in China next month and a launch in India is expected soon after.
