Xiaomi Redmi 8 Full Specification, Features, Price and Release Date


Redmi, the sub-brand of Xiaomi, already had the Redmi Note 8, Note 8 Pro and 8A in the market, so the fourth that was missing to reach the Redmi 8, dry. It is a low-end device that seeks to replace the well-known Redmi 7 by everyone and has been announced today in India.


Its technical datasheet consists of a screen larger than six inches with HD + resolution, a Snapdragon 439 processor, up to 4 GB of RAM, a huge 5,000 mAh battery and dual rear camera, all for about 100 euros to change. Let's know a little better.

  • Snapdragon 439
  • 3 GB or 4 GB RAM
  • 32 GB or 64 GB storage
  • MicroSD up to 512 GB

  • 5,000 mAh battery with Fast charge 18W
  • Android 9 Pie
  • Rear fingerprint reader
  • Protection P2i

Dual Rear Camera


The Redmi 8 has a less basic mobile appearance than the Redmi 8A, now getting into the double cameras. Technically, it is the same main 12-megapixel lens with f / 1.8 aperture with a Sony sensor, although now it is accompanied by another 2-megapixel sensor to make depth measurements. In this way, you can expect better portraits helped by intelligence and its automatic recognition of scenes.




As for the front camera, the 8 megapixels and their location are maintained in the "V" shaped notch that crowns the smartphone screen. A screen that, by the way, has a diagonal of 6.22 inches and HD + resolution, that is, 1520 x 720 pixels.



Battery for a while


The muscle of this Redmi 8 is provided by Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 (eight cores at 1.95GHz and 1.45GHz). It is the same Redmi 8A processor, but now the minimum version starts at 3 GB of RAM and there is also the model with 4 GB of RAM. At the moment there are two combinations available: 3 GB + 32 GB and 4 GB + 64 GB.

The Redmi 8 has more reasons to brag on your battery, 5000 mAh and a quick load of 18 W . We found good figures in the Redmi 8A and we still find it in this Redmi 8. Of course, the charger included in the box is 10W. Another detail to consider in the price range in which we move is that it has a USB-C connector.

The smartphone has P2i and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 splash protection, while connectivity has the usual suspects (Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS) and adds the FM radio and the characteristic IR Blaster, in addition to the minijack.
