Before making its debut on the market, Redmi Note 7 stunned everyone even because of some bizarre resistance tests, but on balance they demonstrated the solidity and reliability of the construction of the Chinese mid-range. As you well know, in a few days we will see the debut of the two new Redmi Note 8 Pro and Redmi Note 8 devices, which continue the tradition launched by the previous generation, becoming protagonists of a very particular endurance test.
In the video that appeared on the Weibo social network, you can see the two Redmi smartphones grappling with a heavy-handed gym and with an 90 Kg barbell. In your opinion, will the two terminals survive, keeping the display immaculate and working? All you have to do is watch the video.
Redmi Note 8 Pro without secrets: sales package, prices and resistance tests of the new medium (TOP) range
Naturally we invite you to take what you have seen with a certain detachment, because I am sure that at the first fall your new tech jewel will not come out completely undamaged. Having said that, let's remember that August 29 will be the date on which we will see the launch of the company's first gaming phone. In fact Redmi Note 8 Pro boasts a MediaTek Helio G90T SoC and a liquid cooling system that will increase the phone's performance during stress.
Of the two new smartphones, at present we know almost everything and therefore we can only admire the sales package, which at least for the Pro model shows a flaming red. Actually nothing in particular and above all no reference to the gaming soul of the device. Probably the photo appeared on the net could also be a fake, but we are interested in real content?
In conclusion what awaits us the 29 August?
Redmi Note 8 Pro will have measures equal to 161.3 x 76.4 x 8.8 mm and a weight of 199 grams. A low weight but justified by the presence of a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 glass protection on both sides, with reinforced corners against falls and accidental bumps and IP52 certification against splashes. At least initially we will have three colors, such as Ice Jade, Fritillaria White and Electro-Optic Ash. At the display level we will find a 6,53-inch LCD panel with Full HD + resolution with TUV Rheinland certification. The novelty lies in the CPU, an interesting MediaTek Helio G90T made at 12 nm with octacore structure composed of 2 x 2.05 GHz Cortex-A76 + 6 x 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55, while the standard variant will have a Snapdragon 665 processor. it could scare at the level of autonomy, and instead no fear because Redmi Note 8 Pro will boast a battery from 4500 mAh with fast charging at 18W, which justifies the weight of the device even more. Finally, there is no lack of NFC, IR transmitter, USB-C port and fingerprint sensor, all powered by the Android 9 Pie operating system based on MIUI 10 (pending the release of version 11).
There will certainly be an excellent photographic sector that features a main sensor Samsung GW1 from 64 MP and opening f / 1.7. As secondary chamber we have a wide-angle from 8 MP and finally a macro from 2 MP and one from 2 MP for depth of field detection. The front camera will be single from 20 MP.
But how much will all this be of God? Despite the considerable improvements, the company could confirm the excellent price of the previous generation, in fact the standard model (Redmi Note 8) will debut at 1199 yuan, equal to about 150 euros for the basic variant from 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage indoor. The price is of course not yet official and any import costs, taxes, etc. must also be considered. In the table below, however, only the price of the basic version is indicated, which, however, should also be accompanied by those from 6 / 64 GB and 6 / 128 GB.
As for the Redmi Note 8 Pro, instead the versions indicated are those from 6 / 128 and 8 / 128 GB which respectively will be offered at the price of 1799 and 2099 yuan, equal to 226 and 264 euros at current exchange rates. Also in this case there would be a variant missing, namely that base from 6 / 64 GB. But remember that the source in question is not reliable at 100%, so take it all with the right amount of skepticism.
