THE Xiaomi has been advancing several details about two new phones that will be officially announced next Thursday (29): the Redmi Note 8 it has a quad camera, a 48 megapixel main sensor and a Snapdragon 665 processor; while the Redmi Note 8 Proit has a 64 MP quadruple camera, up to 25x zoom and MediaTek Helio G90T chip.
O Redmi Note 8 will have four sensors at the rear: the main camera is 48 megapixels, and will come accompanied by an ultrawide camera, a depth sensor and a super macro camera. These details were confirmed by the official Redmi account on the social network Weibo.
The company also says that the Redmi Note 8 will come with the processor Snapdragon 665, the same as the Xiaomi Mi A3 and CC9e. Lu Weibing, general manager of Redmi, explains in the Weibo that this chip is manufactured in the 11 nm process, and therefore has greater energy efficiency than the Snapdragon 660.
Redmi Note 8 Pro will have 64 MP quad camera
Of course, Xiaomi is more excited about the Redmi Note 8 Pro. It will be equipped with the MediaTek Helio G90T processor, focused on gamers, and will have a liquid cooling system. The 4,500 mAh battery supports 18 W fast charging; Xiaomi President Lin Bin says on Weibo that he used the smartphone for two days and still 40% charge left.
The biggest highlight of the Redmi Note 8 Pro, however, is the quad camera with 64 megapixel sensor: this is the Samsung Isocell Bright GW1 announced a few weeks ago. Its photosensitive area is 34% larger than that of a 48 MP sensor.
Lin Bin, vice president of Xiaomi, shared some images captured by the device to demonstrate the zoom up to 25x. The executive says the original file weighs 21MB, even exceeding Weibo’s upload limit (20MB), but the zoom shows how sharp the photo is and captures the details well – at least in good lighting.
And in a promotional video, Xiaomi promises that the Redmi Note 8 Pro will be resistant: it shows a weightlifter stepping on two units of the device while lifting a bar; the screen remains intact. The display will have a drop shaped notch.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro will be available in green and white; furthermore, we will have two variants in World of Warcraft, limited edition to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the game.
It will be announced at an event in China on August 29 alongside Redmi TV 4K 70 inches, the Redmibook 14 with 10th generation Intel Core i7 processor, and possibly MIUI 11.
