Xiaomi has just unveiled its new ‘Redmi Note 8 2021’ edition. The device has launched for the global markets, and the Indian availability is still a question. It comes with most of the features that were expected from it based on the leaks. The device can potentially kill the sale of the Redmi Note 9 series that is also powered by the same chipset. The Redmi Note 8 2021 can be a decent entry-level 4G smartphone for users who want something really powerful for a very small price. Let’s take a look at the complete specifications of the smartphone.
