Xiaomi is expected to take the wraps off the Redmi Note 8 alongside the Note 8 Pro on August 29. Ahead of the launch, several promotional materials about the models have been hitting the internet, revealing the design and key specifications. The latest is a couple of camera samples shot on the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro will have as its biggest highlight, the 64MP camera sensor at the rear. The sensor was recently announced by Samsung. Realme already demoed the technology but it seems the Redmi Note 8 Pro will be the first device to launch with the camera.
The pictures were shared by Lu Weibing, the brand manager of Redmi. One of the pictures is actually a large three-meter-tall poster of the Redmi Note 8 Pro camera sample which was mounted in front of Xiaomi’s Beijing HQ. That image may not be a true representation of the actual quality of the camera output. However, a second sample also appeared which is a view of the Beijing skyline. Although the sample is impressive, it is not the best we have seen from Xiaomi.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro is expected to feature a Tetracell sensor which produces 16MP images with 4-to-1 pixel binning. The device is said to have 25x zoom capability and will be powered by a MediaTek Helio G90T chipset. This will be yet another first for the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
