    The Redmi Note 8 will come with a pretty large AMOLED display, measuring 6.39 inches with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and a waterdrop notch.

    In terms of performance, Redmi Note 8 is a step above the Redmi Note 7S( with Snapdragon 660) released a few months ago with its Snapdragon 665 chipset onboard. The new MediaTek Helio G90T chipset powers the Redmi Note 8 Pro alongside 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage for stable performance while gaming and multitasking. The memory and storage detail of the standard Note 8 is still not confirmed, but I believe before the launch date, every detail will be unveiled.

    In terms of power, both Android smartphones are armed with 4500mAh battery capacity.  It can provide an ample amount of power backup to let users stay charged all through the day. Furthermore, there is also a Fast Charging technology that can refill the battery in a short duration.
