Review of Specs and Features
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Camera
Undoubtedly one of the key features and one thing that will surely quicken the sale of this very device. Just like the pro version, Note comes with a remarkable triple back camera with 64MP, 5MP and 2MP on each lens. The secondary camera also features a nice 16MP lens that guarantees superb image quality even on video calls. In the society of social media users, this is surely that spec that users will want to have.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Battery
Unlike the pro version that has 4000mAh, Note 8 comes with 3700mAh which in my opinion is quite good. The power system also comes with a nice fast charging feature that delivers up to 50% with just 30mins of charge. The battery is expected to deliver up to 46 hours of talk time to users which is about two hours short of what the pro version promises to offer.

RAM and Processor
This device has a massive 6GB RAM which also combines with its 2.0GHz processor to deliver some amazing performance speed. Get the best multitasking experience and superb speed while surfing the internet.
Comes with an in-built 64GB ROM which can also be upgraded up to 256GB with SD card. This allows users the freedom to keep all their favourite apps, games, movies, mp3 and other important documents safe while also assuring an all-round great performance.
Display and Screen Size
A 6.39 – inches AMOLED screen with is what this device is expected to come with. The display is boosted by its 1080 x 2340 pixels. This allows for a good distribution of colour within the viewing angles. The screen is equally non-bezel meaning, more angles will be freed up for viewers.
Supports the 4G LTE with an option to switch within preferred 2G and 3G bands for different purposes.
Some of the special features of this device include its on-screen fingerprint sensor, Accelerometer, Compass, Gyroscope, Proximity and Light sensor.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro (Which Device is better?)
The truth is both devices share almost the same specs with the Pro version advancing just a bit in some aspect. Paying up to $420 for the pro version rather than $312 for Note 8 for me is needless but users choice is always paramount.
