Android version and market relevance

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 was announced by the company Xiaomi in May 2021 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Xiaomi Redmi. Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 works on Android 11, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 implemented support for working with two SIM cards.

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2021” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 — this is the price segment page “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

The case Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors.

The screen Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 is made using the IPS LCD technology, has a diagonal 6.3 inches. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 8.4 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 000 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 48 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 13 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone received 8-core processor Helio G85. If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 received 4 GB of RAM.

And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 64 GB or 128 GB. Supported memory cards microSDXC.
