Xiaomi launched the most anticipated Redmi Note 8 series in China on Thursday. The Redmi Note 8 series comprising of two variants that include Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro was revealed to the public, putting an end to all the rumours and speculations.
The developers of the Redmi Note 8 series have equipped the smartphones with some of the most advanced camera sensors, gaming boosters, and audio rockers. Following the ongoing competition to embed the highest megapixel sensors in the rear cameras, Xiaomi has proved its supremacy over its competitors by integrating Redmi Note 8 Pro with the latest 64MP sensor.
With the launch of the device in China, Indian fans are going crazy over the features provided by the smartphone, especially for the price point it comes in. The major question arising in the minds of the tech-savvy fans is the launch date and the pricing for the device in the Indian market.
Calming down the enthusiasts, Manu Kumar Jain, managing director of Xiaomi India tweeted through his handle stating that the Redmi Note 8 series will be launched in India within eight weeks.
Commenting on the tweet, some of the fans have shown their dismay citing it as a promotional stunt for creating hype ahead of the Redmi Note 8 series launch in India.
Assuming the tweet where Manu Jain clarified to his followers that the delay in the launch of the device in India was because of the certification and testing process, Xiaomi might be planning to launch the Redmi Note 8 series just before the Flipkart Big Billion Sale to boost the interest of the buyers.
