Amidst all the anti-Chinese movement, a lot of people has been forced to still rely on Xiaomi, Oppo, Realme and Vivo for budget smartphones. A very popular among them is the last year’s Redmi Note 8, which truly is an all-rounder smartphone at low-budget and worthy enough for the hype among buyers.
Redmi Note 8 Specs
- 48MP AI Quad camera with portrait, ultra-wide lens, macro lens, LED flash, AI support, beautify support | 13MP front camera with AI portrait mode
- 6.3-inch IPS LCD multi-touch capacitive touchscreen with 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution, 403 ppi pixel density and 19.5:9 aspect ratio | 2.5D curved glass
- Memory, Storage & SIM: 4GB RAM | 64GB internal memory expandable up to 512GB | Dual SIM (nano+nano) dual-standby (4G+4G)
- Android Pie v9 operating system with 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 octa-core processor
- 4000mAH lithium-polymer battery providing talk-time of 32 hours and standby time of 540 hours | 18W fast charger
But sadly enough, the smartphone has been consistently seeing price bump in 2020, especially the 4GB RAM + 64GB variant whose original pricing was ₹9,999 but since due to the pandemic effect and GST hike to 18% the smartphone’s price got increased to ₹11,999, but that is not all, yet again the price has been increased by ₹500 to make it a hefty ₹12,499.
This reflects the poor availability of Xiaomi devices or the company might be interested in getting more profit in these difficult scenarios. The prices have been updated on Xiaomi’s official store and other online retailers while the new price has taken effect at offline stores yesterday. However, the price of the 6GB RAM + 128GB variant remains the same as ₹14,499.
