Software-wise, the Redmi 8 will most likely boot Android 9 Pie with Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 10 skin.

The cameras and battery details are unknown at the moment. However, we don’t have to wait for long for that, since the Redmi 8 launch is now just around the corner. The handset could launch at Xiaomi’s event in China. The Redmi 8 is expected to be accompanied by a ‘Pro’ model – allegedly dubbed as Redmi 8 Pro. The latter may arrive with a 48-megapixel primary camera and near bezel-less display with a Dot notch up top. It’ll most likely have a better chipset than the regular Redmi 8 smartphone (fingers crossed!).
