Despite the hype aroused by terminals like the Mi Mix alpha and the brand new Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G, the enthusiasm for entry level devices is always sky-high. We have recently tried the Redmi home range, the 7A model I leave you with here the review, and here comes a new economic smartphone that improves some aspects.
We are talking about Redmi 8, which is getting closer to debut: these days we have witnessed the rumors leaked by the Chinese body TENAA with lots of images of the terminal, and now here comes new confirmations on the upcoming debut of Redmi 8 that appeared on Google Play Console.
Redmi 8 getting closer to launch: here are new confirmations from Google Play Console
Some specifications of the device are confirmed, such as the processor that will animate the new entry level. According to the card on Google Play Console, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 SoC will be the protagonist at the hardware level. A rather apt choice, considering that it is the same chipset that we could appreciate on the Redmi 7A and that will also animate the sequel Redmi 8A. The display is confirmed with HD + resolution (1520 x 720 pixel) with 320 PPI density, but fortunately Redmi 8 will have from its at least 3 GB of RAM while the operating system on board is based on Android 9 Pie.
A technical sheet that certainly won't scream to the mircaolo, not as happened for POCOPHONE F1, but certainly the restyling of the device is rather important and modern, allowing even those with a limited budget not to be "ashamed" more of their device. Unfortunately there are still no rumors about a presumed date of presentation, but certainly the company will not dedicate an entire event to the small Redmi 8, which could also be accompanied by a probable Redmi 8A Pro, an enhanced version that is rumored to be equipped with a SoC Snapdragon 675.
