Xiaomi Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A Forums are now open
While Xiaomi does offer flagship smartphones in a few markets, its entry-level and mid-range devices are what it’s known for. In fact, the company’s Redmi brand is so popular that it now even offers affordable flagships like the Redmi K20 Pro. Recently, the company launched the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A in the budget-segment, offering great hardware specifications for the price. In order to provide users with a common platform for discussions related to these devices, we’ve now opened forums for the Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A.
The Redmi 8 was launched in India early last month at a price of ₹7,999. The device features a 6.22-inch HD+ LCD display with a waterdrop notch that houses the 8MP front-facing camera. On the back, you get a dual-camera setup with a 12MP primary lens and a 2MP lens for depth perception. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 439 chip, coupled with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It’s backed by a massive 5,000mAh battery with 18-watt fast charging support over USB Type-C.
The Redmi 8A, on the other hand, was launched earlier this year in September and offers similar specifications as the Redmi 8. It also has a 6.22-inch HD+ LCD display with a waterdrop notch on the front that houses the 8MP selfie shooter. On the back, however, it features a single 12MP f/1.8 camera. The Snapdragon 439 chip can also be found on this device, with up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Powering the device is a 5,000mAh battery which also has 18-watt fast charging support over USB Type-C, but you only get a 10-watt charger in the box.
