While the Redmi Note 8 series is yet to be announced in India, Xiaomi has revealed that the upcoming series will also have liquid cooling that would help the Redmi Note 8 remain approx. 4-6 degrees cooler, so as to provide longer hours of browsing or gameplay. The Note 8 series is expected to launch on August 29. The smartphone is expected to come with a big battery, improved cameras, and a high screen-to-body ratio.
The series will have a standard Redmi Note 8 and other Redmi Note 8 Pro that will come with quad cameras on the back. The smartphone will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor and will use Samsung’s 64MP GW1 image sensor. There will be a dewdrop notch that will also house the selfie camera.
The GW1 features smart ISO supported by Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) technology, which intelligently adjusts the ISO sensitivity based on ambient light intensity. It uses low ISO in high-brightness environments, and high ISO in the dark-light environments to achieve the best signal-to-noise ratio for the entire scene.
The GW1 outputs 64MP photos with a resolution of 9248 x 6936 pixels. It comes with support for real-time hardware-supported high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels (dB) that provides richer hues. Compared to the dynamic range of a conventional image sensor, which is at around 60dB (while that of the human eye is typically considered to be around 120dB), the GW1 strives to provide true-to-life imagery.
If leaked images are to be believed, the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro will have a glass body similar to the Redmi Note 7 series. There will also be an in-display fingerprint sensor which will make the Redmi Note 8 Pro – Xiaomi’s first device to have a fingerprint sensor integrated into the display. Additionally, there will be a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type C support, and sleek bezels.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro is expected to be powered by the new Helio G90T chipset.
