Budget Xiaomi Redmi 8 with serious battery

Xiaomi's classic budget official, Redmi 8, has been officially introduced. So far - in the Indian market, but the deal is definitely not limited to it - the smartphone has already appeared on Ali.

With a price of 7999 Indian rupees (7230 rubles.) for the older version, one would expect something more modest. Redmi 8 honestly exceeds expectations, with a chic 5000 mAh battery and an impressive memory capacity of 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal flash. To expand the memory you don’t have to sacrifice anything - the slots for sim cards and microSD are separate. Supports 18W fast charging via Type-C port.

Yes, the chipset from the younger ones is Qualcomm Snapdragon 439. The camera is dual, but this is more a tribute to fashion than a necessity - an auxiliary module is only for creating blurring. Wi-Fi single band. NFC support, of course, no. All this fits well with the idea of ​​an inexpensive smartphone, so it's not worth scolding him for it.

The cherry on the cake is Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which protects the 6.22-inch HD + screen.

In addition, the model is presented in the younger version - 3 GB + 32 GB. Like the senior, he is already offered on Ali.
