The Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro were launched in China last month, packing some impressive hardware at a competitive price point. The Redmi Note 8, in particular, comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory, which ticks with the Snapdragon 665 SoC. Xiaomi now appears to launch a more powerful version of the phone, which will double the internal storage to 256GB, as well as increase the amount of RAM to 8GB. The beefed-up variants of Redmi Note 8 are expected to debut in the Chinese market soon.
The packing of the new Redmi Note 8 variant on TENAA is 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The listing of the phone on the certification authority’s database indicates that the upgraded Redmi Note 8 model will soon hit the market in China, but by no means will it make it in other markets as well. Interestingly, a total of eight color options of the phone are also mentioned in the TENAA listing. Black, Blue, Gray, Green, Pink, Purple, Red and White.
To recall, Xiaomi originally launched the Redmi Note 8 in Dream Blue, Meteorite Black and White colors. This means that the company has five new Redmi Note 8 color options of the phone in the pipeline – gray, green, pink, purple and red. However, there are no pictures of Redmi Note 8 in any new color in the TENAA database.
The launch of Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro in India has already been confirmed. And if the 8-week deadline provided by Xiaomi’s India chief Manu Kumar Jain in August is anything to go by, the Redmi Note 8 duo will make its debut in India sometime in November.
