Capture dazzling photos with the 64MP quad camera

Redmi Note 8 Pro touts not just three, but four high quality shooters, pioneering a new wave of quad camera smartphones. Its ultra-high resolution 64MP primary camera captures stunning photos that can print images up to 3.26 meters tall.

Meanwhile, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera with a 120° field of view, a 2MP macro camera and 2MP depth sensor come together to create Redmi’s most versatile camera yet.

Better yet, the 20MP front camera’s built-in AI technology lets users put their best face forward through detailed portrait selfies, scene detection and face unlock.

Durable build meets elegant design

Redmi Note 8 Pro sports Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 on its front and back to safeguard against accidental falls and general wear and tear. For enhanced durability, the device also leverages IP52 splash-proof technology, offering effective protection against rain and sweat.

Equipped with a large 6.53” FHD+ Dot Drop display and rear fingerprint sensor, the device achieves a 91.4% screen-to-body ratio. The display is also TÜV Rheinland certified, providing protection against blue light and reducing the likeliness of visual fatigue. Redmi Note 8 Pro’s glossy frame and precise G3 curvature accomodate a comfortable grip, while its three elegant color variants – Mineral Grey, Pearl White and Forest Green – are sure to suit any personality.

Optimal performance for a best-in-class gaming experience

Redmi Note 8 Pro is powered by the latest MediaTek Helio G90T processor, an octa-core CPU clocked up to 2.05GHz for extended everyday use. Meanwhile, the Arm Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU enables the ultimate gaming experience, with a max frequency of 800MHz and AI power up to 1TMACs.
