The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SM6125 chip, including a high speed Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2000 megahertz and a big 3 GB of RAM. A good advantage of this cellphone is the 32 GB big internal storage and an SD card slot, enough to install hundreds of apps without having to worry about running out of space at all.

This device is a compact phone, taking into consideration it presents a 6.3" display and it only has 6.23" long. Being just 0.33 inches thick,this phone is extremely thin and comfortable. This phone body design is a mix of Glass and Plastic . Xiaomi made this phone in lots of colors like cosmic purple, moonlight white, nebula purple, neptune blue and space black. It appears that Xiaomi forgot about weight optimization in this 6.7 oz phone.

This phone is equipped with a great 6.3-inches screen with a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes all images and videos look perfect.
