Xiaomi’s got a huge presence in India’s budget smartphone space, especially the company’s Redmi Note series. Now, that the company’s launched the Redmi Note 8 series in China, a lot of people are bound to ask the all important question – When is the Redmi Note 8 series launching in India?
As per 91Mobiles, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing seeming has an answer to that question and its not going to please a lot of Xiaomi fans in India. Speaking to the publication just after the Redmi Note 8 Series launch in China, Weibing stated that the brand is indeed working towards an India launch but the wait will be at least 2-3 months – which pushes the launch to late October or November.
This bit of news coming in also means that the Realme XT is definitely on course to become the first smartphone in India to feature a 64MP camera.
Weibing also confirmed that the version of the Redmi Note 8 Pro being planned for India will feature the same MediaTek Helio G90T processor, that we saw debut earlier today. As expected, Weibing did not comment on the pricing of the two Redmi Note 8 series smartphones in India, but that shouldn’t be much of a bother since Xiaomi doesn’t usually raise the prices of its new smartphones all of a sudden.
The news would be disheartening to Xiaomi fans in India, moreso because the delay was barely a month in the case of the Redmi Note 7 Series earlier this year. To recall, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 in China in the month of January 2019 and brought both the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro in India within a month (the RN7Pro was launched in India before anywhere else).
