Xiaomi gave us the Redmi 8A first, and they have followed up with the standard Redmi 8 now. If you have looked at the latter device before, you will find out that they are almost identical, save for the glass body that this new one comes with.

Besides, we have an extra camera to look at, as well as more options in the place of internal configurations.

So, a quick rundown gives us a 6.22-inch screen carrying a notch for an 8MP snapper at the top. On the back, we have a main 12MP snapper supported by an extra 2MP sensor for depth sensing. This does not only help for depth, but includes support for AI profiling too.

Under the hood, we have the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 chipset which is backed by a 4GB RAM option. You also get storage all the way to 64GB, followed closely by the Android 9 support.

Users concerned about the battery will have to make do with a 5000mAh cell which comes with a 10W adapter out of the box, even though it can support as much as 18W.

Colour options for this unit include the Onyx Black, Sapphire Blue and Ruby Red. Likewise, starting price for the device is an equivalent of $112 for the base 3GB/ 32GB model, while the top of the line offering carries a $126 price tag instead.
