It shows, it feels, Redmi is present

With gradients and shiny back, The new Redmi Note 8 comes to be placed in that fashion at the level of appearance but moving the rear camera module with respect to its predecessor. It is clear that it is a mobile from this well-known Xiaomi family with the brand both on the back and on the front frame (on the chin).

Speaking of the front, there it is located a 6.3-inch panel with FullHD + resolution (2,340 x 1,0808 pixels), protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and with up to 500 nits of brightness (typical). Crowned by a notch, yes (something that is almost vintage), but for the price of the mobile it is a panel more than worthy, seeing that it is made up of mobiles that aspire to be a more complete mid-range. Of course, being IPS the fingerprint reader is rear.

For those who use (or used) the previous Redmi Note 8, comment that the dimensions are practically the same (with negligible variations), keeping the weight of 190 grams (In fact, it was 192 on the original Redmi Note 8). The infrared port and the 3.5-millimeter minijack are also conserved, the first quite a brand of the house of Xiaomi.
