Xiaomi’s spin-off brand Redmi has confirmed that it is launching the Redmi Note 8, Note 8 Pro and an enhanced version of the RedmiBook 14 on August 29 in China. The brand has been teasing its Note 8 Pro model for quite some time now and for the first time, details about the Redmi Note 8 and RedmiBook Enhanced Edition 14 have surfaced.
Redmi Note 8 Pro Details:
According to the Weibo post that was put by Redmi, the Note 8 (standard version) will sport the Snapdragon 665 processor. This could mean that the device will not feature a 64MP sensor as the Snapdragon 665 chipset will only offer support for up to 48MP cameras. The MediaTek Helio G90T SoC, on the other hand, offer support for up to 64MP camera. In short, the Redmi Note 8 may sport a quad-camera setup with a 48MP camera sensor at the rear.

Built on 11nm process technology, the Snapdragon 665 SoC comes with Snapdragon X12 LTE Modem and Adreno 610 GPU for enhanced performance.
