The last few days were filled with leaks and teasers for the upcoming Redmi Note 8 series. Earlier today we learned the phone will officially debut on August 29 and now we get a confirmation that the Note 8 and Note 8 Pro will feature the new gaming-focused Helio G90T chipset.
MediaTek unveiled the G90 series SoCs back in July and we knew a Redmi device will debut with the G90T chipset in the near future. Now, a Weibo post by MediaTek revealed that the upcoming Redmi Note models will in fact ship with the new SoC.
We already know the Note 8 Pro will come with a quad-camera setup headlined by the 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 sensor, while the regular Note 8 will likely opt for a 48MP shooter instead. In addition, both phones are expected to come with a fingerprint reader on the back and will support NFC connectivity - a first for the Redmi Note line.
Redmi Brand Director Lu Weibing also revealed that the Note 8 line will come with better battery life and a higher screen to body ratio. We’ll keep you posted once more info on the upcoming Note 8 line comes to light.
Lol, MTK? No thanks
Dang it. *sigh* hopefully the Redmi K30/K30 Pro will have a MicroSD card slot. :'(
