A couple of Redmi fans asked Lu Weibing, Redmi's General Manager, if the Redmi Note 8 is in the works and when should we expect it. To our surprise, Weibing answered, albeit vaguely.
He confirmed that the Redmi Note 8 is coming soon enough and it will be "stronger than the next door", as per Google translate. Perhaps what he meant is that it's going to crush the competition or it's a major improvement over its predecessor.
Either way, it's good to know that one of Redmi's most successful lineups is getting an upgrade real soon.

The Redmi Note 8 could be the competitor to both Honor 9X and RealMe X. Sure there's K20/Mi9T but that's in a higher price tier so the upcoming Redmi Note 8 could be the proper alternative and a bestseller if done right.
Am still using redmi 4X (snapdragon 435, 720p screen) Might as well hold of buy redmi Note 7 and wait for Redmi Note 8 variant. Redmi 4X still have good battery life and works great.!
