Redmi’s new entry-level smartphones were made official in China today. Although economical, Redmi 8 comes with some interesting features. Such as a large-screen non-forgotten display, large 18 W fast-charging battery and good quality cameras. In addition, we have a price of around Rs.7,799.
Redmi 8/8A have polycarbonate bodies of identical design. Also noteworthy is the nano P2i coating for splash resistance. Both the Redmi 8 and 8A have 6.22 inch IPS LCD screens and have a 19: 9 aspect ratio. Also noteworthy is the HD + resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels. The screens of both smartphones are protected by Gorilla Glass 5 glass. The dimensions are 156.5 x 75.4 x 9.4 mm and weigh 188 grams.
However, both devices bet on the Android 9 operating system with MIUI 10 interface. At the performance level, the Snapdragon 439 chipset that powered the Redmi 7A is also inside in Redmi 8A and Redmi 8 smartphones. Perhaps one of the most interesting features is its 5,000 mAh battery. However, these devices support fast 18 W charging via a USB-C port. The charger that comes in the box supports 10W.
The rear panel of the 8A has a single camera. So the sensor is a 12MP Sony IMX363 which is also available on some of the older smartphones like the Xiaomi Poco F1, Google Pixel 3 and Vivo iQOO. However, the Redmi 8 has a dual-camera system at the rear. Thus, the Sony IMX363 12MP main sensor joins another 2MP depth sensor. At the selfie level, the Redmi 8 range is equipped with an 8MP camera backed by artificial intelligence.
However, the Redmi 8 has a fingerprint reader below the dual-camera system. However, this functionality is not available on the other model. Other features include an infrared port, wireless FM radio, dual SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and 3.5mm audio output. Hope, this is the last Redmi series with 4G support.
