Redmi Note 8T
As mentioned above, the Redmi Note 8T was first announced unofficially by tipsters who said that the phone would supposedly see a late 2019/early 2020 launch. The phone was also rumored to be powered by powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, but the rumors turned out to be false. And now these new renders have revealed the phone’s design as well as color variants alongside the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
As can be seen in the renders, the Redmi Note 8T is the one on the left side, with a vertical quad-camera system, fingerprint scanner, and Redmi logo. The two phones in the picture are almost identical if not for some slight variances. Both the Redmi Note 8T and Note 8 will reportedly have identical specs and the only differentiator between the two will be the NFC support in the 8T. It’s interesting how despite all these major leaks after leaks on the phone, Redmi has still not said even a word on the existence of the Note 8T.
