THE Anatel approved four cell phones from Xiaomi in the last week: the list Redmi Note 8 with quad camera and the Redmi Note 8 Pro with 64 megapixel sensor and MediaTek processor for gamers. We also have the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A, both with a 5,000 mAh battery. All were certified for sale in Brazil at the request of DL Eletrônicos.
Cesar Cardoso, from Mobile Penguins, found that the four smartphones were approved by Anatel. Redmi 8 and 8A were approved last Monday (7), while Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro received certification on Thursday (10).
Anatel documents show that all devices support the Brazilian 4G band 28, which corresponds to the frequency of 700 MHz released by turning off analog TV. It’s something you won’t find on the iPhone 11 sold in the USA, for example.
Anatel approves Xiaomi cell phones with 64 MP and 5,000 mAh
The Redmi Note 8 has a quad rear camera with a 48 megapixel main sensor. It maintains the 4,000 mAh battery present in its predecessor (Redmi Note 7), as well as the digital reader at the rear and the 6.3-inch LCD screen. Inside, we have the Snapdragon 665 processor.
Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 8 Pro features the MediaTek Helio G90T processor aimed at gamers, accompanied by liquid cooling technology. The rear camera is quadruple, with a 64-megapixel Samsung Isocell Bright GW1 sensor. The battery has 4,500 mAh.
The Redmi 8 is a basic phone that stands out for its 5,000 mAh battery. Inside, we find the Snapdragon 439, up to 4 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of expandable storage by microSD. The rear camera is dual, with 12 and 2 megapixel sensors.
In turn, the Redmi 8A is an even simpler model. The battery also has a capacity of 5,000 mAh, and the processor remains the Snapdragon 439; however, the RAM reaches a maximum of 3 GB, and the storage is 32 GB (with support for microSD). The rear camera has only a 12 MP sensor.
There is still no launch forecast for these phones, but DL said earlier that it plans to expand its portfolio in Brazil later this year. She runs the official Mi Store in São Paulo, in addition to taking care of after-sales and technical support throughout the country.
