November 3, 2019 1

While the Redmi Note Pro series is the mid-range leader for Xiaomi, the company has maintained a fantastic tier-two option for users who don’t want to spend as much, but still want some of the features introduced by the new generation of hardware.

The Redmi Note 8 Packs a punch for a sub $200 smartphone and the hype around this phone is actually worth it. This should definitely make Other brands in Nigeria sit up

What’s in the box

  • Redmi Note 8
  • TPU case
  • 18W charger

  • SIM ejector tool

Xiaomi has stepped up its game with in-box contents: It now throws in an 18W fast charger in the box. Additionally, you’ll find the usual TPU case, USB-C cable, and SIM ejector tool. It would have been nice to see a pair of earphones thrown in for good measure, but you’ve probably got a favorite pair lying around anyway. 


  • 158.3 x 75.3 x 8.4mm
  • 190g
  • Gorilla Glass 5 front and back
  • Waterdrop notch
  • Rear fingerprint sensor

The design of the Redmi Note 8 leans more towards the Redmi Note 7S than the Redmi Note 8 Pro. While the latter incorporates a curvy design and a luxurious build that belies its price, the Redmi Note 8 is very much a mid-range smartphone as far as looks go. The entire design is an extension of the flattened-out, glass-and-metal sandwich that first debuted on the Redmi Note 7. Yes, Xiaomi’s budget portfolio can get quite complicated.
