Newer Snapdragons beat older Snapdragons right?
But for whatever reason OEMs will use a 439 in the redmi 8 which wasn't an upgrade over the redmi 7...
Maybe they should go mediatek then because they'll actually use an upgraded soc so indeed congratulations to mediatek
Anon, 19 Dec 2019Xiaomi probably feels that most budget buyers prefer a large battery/display. Their last small... moreThis... I Just want a redmi 7a form factor with snapdragon 675 and 5000 mAh. Keep the Plastic body, single 12 mp 1.55 um
CptPower, 19 Dec 2019Man mediatek is not that bad as you think. These new mediateks beats snapdragon SD4xx and mo... moreThat's only your assumption, 845 is still on the top range of calibre despite it's aging tech, at least it's still can beat the Kirin 980, the G90 is nowhere near the 845 unless you talk about the 845 inside Pixel series which have a slower performance than other optimized device, and we haven't talk about the one inside the Rog Phone yet who has closer performance to the 855
CptPower, 19 Dec 2019So far so great. If G70 by mediatek will be on par with SD730 it will be interesting. Also... moreWon't be possible, since the G90T is on the 730G league, 730 is competing against the G90, therefore this G70 will have a less power to fare, it's possibly likely that the G70 will be on the league with the 675 or 712

And btw that last sentence. Real question. Are you joking?
CompactPhones5ever, 19 Dec 20196.6" on a non-note version? Then how big the note version will be, 7"? This is basically a tab... moreIt's possible to be smaller, like how realme made it to be for their phones and the pro version, e.g the realme 5 and realme 5 pro which pro haa smaller screen

It's something like VPN. Choosing some regions/countries will enable/disable the ads, themes, face unlock, etc...
Wan, 19 Dec 2019Stop use mediatekBuy something else, if you not like mediatek
Xiaomi know what products to sell

6.6" on a non-note version? Then how big the note version will be, 7"? This is basically a tablet at this point. Not only such giantic phones are extremelly unpractical, you also look like a dumba*s holding this paddle to your head while talking.
You know what I'd like to see? If Redmi made two version or Note 9 - Note 9 Plus and Note 9 Mini - they would have exactly the same specs and price except 'Plus' would be 7" and 'Mini' would be lets say 5.7". This would show if people really want these huge devices, or if they're only buying them because they don't have other option in the similar price/performance segment.
So far so great.
If G70 by mediatek will be on par with SD730 it will be interesting.
Also i am happy that the minimum used ram and disk space for 2020 phones will be 4/64GB option.
Wan, 19 Dec 2019Stop use mediatekMan mediatek is not that bad as you think.
These new mediateks beats snapdragon SD4xx and most SD6xx like nothing.
G90 by mediatek is even faster than SD845.
Obviously at the moment it's fashionable to have a big phablet. For this reason I do not change my Mi6, I will wait February to see what the Mi10 will be and if I don't like it I will take the compact Samsung S10e.
Ok i got it they think we are a giant creatures with a massive hands ......guys some people should travel to china make them be sure the rest of the world are normal human being with normal size.
DrakeX, 19 Dec 2019I don't think you know what you're talking about. MIUI ads may be intrusive but it can be disa... moreYes, some regions don't have preinstalled adware, but their devices may cost up to 50% more. For example, in Australian market the Redmi Note 8 Pro costs $440-450 (or USD $300 ish equivalent), that's not too expensive but already borderline expensive.
Unlocking the bootloader poses security risks, disables device warranty, and makes the device a tougher sell despite seemingly physically ok.
India IS a price (value for money) conscious market just like several Southeast Asia countries (like Indonesia or Malaysia). They want to maximise specs for a given amount of money. I believe some people don't notice their Mi phones are preloaded with ads, the latter they don't know how to turn this off.
MIUI is not slow, unlike OneUI. But it seems that ColorOS, EMUI, FuntouchOS, and especially OxygenOS (OnePlus phone price is not the question) has better speed.
I hope that clarifies what you're saying and feel free to make some corrections.
RAF, 18 Dec 2019If Redmi 9 will have a 6.6 inch display I would expect Redmi Note 9 to go very close to 7 inch... moreYeah thats insane. I would like to have max size something like redmi 7A. I can have the phone thicker for larger battery but not larger.
Actually even 7A is too large to fit in pants pocket.
I have note 5 AI dual cam and waiting something smaller with ok specs and low price.
RAF, 18 Dec 20196.6 inch for a lower end device? When is this madness with larger and larger displays gonna stop?True. All go to bigger mini tablet.... Now i have Mi a3 4gb 64 and Htc U11 4gb 64(sell sony xz1) , wait when reach(bought, note 8 during few dews reach) redmi 8 4gb 64gb, redmi note 8 4gb 64, redmi note 8 pro 6gb 64, must take for my use redmi 8 secondary phone and 8 pro main, rhe other all for sell
RAF, 18 Dec 20196.6 inch for a lower end device? When is this madness with larger and larger displays gonna stop?So many people like large displays i was one of them and i am waiting for Redmi Note 10 pro with mediatek 5G chip with 6.7 inches screen
