The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro(₹ 14999 at amazon) is confirmed to debut on August 29 at an event in China. It will be one of the first 64MP camera smartphone and as such, there are a lot of expectations behind the device. Now, in the days preceding the launch, nearly every feature of the phone has been officially or unofficially revealed, save for the price. And now, that too is out in the open thanks to a tipster based out of China. He revealed the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro prices in Chinese Yuan, and by the looks of it, Redmi’s Note series could become a little more expensive.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro’s price for the variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will reportedly be set at RMB 1799 (roughly Rs 18,000). The top-end variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will be priced a little higher at RMB 2,099 (roughly Rs 21,000). Similarly, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage could be priced at RMB 1199 (roughly Rs 12,000). Another variant of the Redmi Note 8 is also expected but pricing for that has not been leaked, so far. The information comes from an unverified source on Weibo and was spotted by 91Mobiles.

Alongside the price, the retail box of the Redmi Note 8 Pro was also officially revealed by Redmi CEO Lu Weibing to tease the launch of the phone. The box is in line with the recent rebranding Redmi undertook with a predominantly pinkish coloured exterior.

As for the specifications, it’s now revealed the Redmi Note 8 Pro will be powered by the newly unveiled MediaTek Helio G90T. It’s a gaming chipset that MediaTek had earlier confirmed would debut on a Redmi device. Previous leaks have also indicated the phone could come with liquid cooling for sustained high performance along with a 4,500mAh battery.

The phone’s design, based on live hands-on images leaked online, will be more akin to the Redmi K20 series. On the back will be a triple camera setup with one of them being the 64MP camera sensor from Samsung. Unfortunately, the Redmi Note 8 Pro will not feature an in-display fingerprint sensor as evident from the rear-mounted capacitive sensor on the body.
