Since the success of Redmi Note 3 Pro, Xiaomi strives to release smartphones with the best specifications for a fraction of flagship phones’ prices. Smartphones under Redmi Note series take the largest part to contribute to this success.
Redmi Note 8 is last year’s best mid-ranger released under Redmi brand, a sub-brand of Xiaomi.
Housing Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset (11 nm) that sports Octa-core CPUs of 4x 2.0GHz Kryo 260 Gold and 4 x1.8GHz Kryo 260 Silver, Redmi Note 8 is more than capable to fulfil the needs of your day-to-day usage.
Redmi Note 8 has codename Ginkgo. It has an identical sibling with slightly updated hardware.
Meet the Redmi Note 8T, the identical sibling that packs NFC on its board. This far-away sibling has codename Willow and is common to see in European Mi Store and online retailers.
Are you one of lucky owners of either Willow or Ginkgo device?
Good news! World’s best-modded version of TWRP recovery comes to both Redmi Note 8/8T, the Orangefox recovery!
