Redmi Note 8 camera design, processor and more has been officially confirmed.
The smartphone will feature a 48MP rear quad camera setup.
It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset.
Redmi Note 8 series is all set to be introduced in the coming week, and the company is building hype by teasing the features of its upcoming smartphones. After confirming details about the Redmi Note 8 Pro, the company has now confirmed that the Redmi Note 8 will also pack quad rear cameras. The smartphone manufacturer has also officially confirmed the rear design of the Redmi Note 8, and also revealed that the phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset.
Let’s talk about the optics first. This time around, Redmi seems to have implemented different camera module designs on the two devices. While the Redmi Note 8 Pro is expected to have a camera module at the center, the regular Redmi Note 8 will feature the rear camera module on the left side of the phone. Further, the attached Weibo post has mentioned that the Redmi Note 8 will sport a 48MP main sensor, a wide-angle lens camera, a macro lens camera, and a fourth sensor for depth-of-field. However the sensor of 48MP main sensor is not confirmed yet.
The company posted a couple of low-light shots captured on the Redmi Note 8, which is said to use four-in-one pixel binning to make an 12MP image with 1.6μm pixel for night mode shots, similar to the Redmi Note 7 series.
The smartphone manufacturer has also revealed that the Redmi Note 8 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, which was recently seen on the Realme 5 and the Mi A3. It is an upgrade over the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset that we saw on the Redmi Note 7. Hence, we expect the Redmi Note 8 to bring along upgrades like lower battery consumption, Vulkan 1.1 API support, and a third-gen AI engine with the Hexagon 686 DSP.
