The price cut appears to be a permanent one

If you’ve been eyeing the Redmi Note 8 Pro but haven’t yet hit the ‘Add to Cart’ button, there’s some good news in store for you. The base variant of the handset has received a price cut of Rs 1,000, which means it now starts at Rs 13,999. For that money, the phone gets 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It’s important to note that Redmi is offering the price cut on only the base variant of the Redmi Note 8 Pro. The Redmi Note 8 Pro is currently available on and among other outlets in four colour options, including Shadow Black, Gamma Green, Halo White, and Electric Blue.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer announced the price slash on its official Twitter account yesterday but did not mention why it is applicable only on the base variant of the phone. The new price currently reflects on and  The 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant retains its price tag of Rs 15,999, and the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, Rs 17,999. Redmi is currently offering a Mi Screen Protect package for an extra Rs 699 along with the Redmi Mi 9 Pro.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro was launched late last year and sold through regular limited-period ‘flash’ sales before entering an ‘open’ sale in late December. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio G90T chip. The handset’s screen measures 6.53 inches diagonally and has Gorilla Glass 5 protection. On the back panel, the device has as many as four cameras: a Samsung-developed 64MP sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, a 2MP macro sensor. On the front, there’s a single 20MP camera for selfies. Read our performance review of the Redmi Note 8 Pro here.
