To recap, the Redmi Note 8 bestows a 6.39-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, a 2.5D curved glass and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The hardware aspects of the smartphone include a 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 665 SoC teamed up with Adreno 610 GPU. Running Android 9 topped with MIUI 10.

The imaging aspects of the Redmi Note 8 feature a quad-camera module at its rear.

A 4000mAh battery powers the Redmi Note 8 along with 18W fast-charging support. There are standard connectivity features including Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, and a USB Type-C port.

What We Think

Given that the Redmi Note 8 base variant with 3GB RAM will be priced at Rs. 9,799, which is just Rs. 200 lesser than that of the 4GB RAM, we prefer the latter with higher memory capacity. However, if you want the Redmi Note 8 and could not get hold of it via flash sales, then the offline sale will be beneficial for you.
