Finally, it’s official. It’s just yesterday, August 29th, the Xiaomi’s CEO Lu Weibing announced the next iterations of company’s mid-range series, the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro.

What so special about this release is the fact that both smartphones are the company’s first-ever device boasting 64-megapixel camera. Thanks to the Samsung ISOCELL GW1 64MP sensor.

Another fun fact about this release is the coming of MediaTek Helio G90T System on Chip (SoC).
