Redmi is one of the most renowned company in the Asian market. The company is a Xiaomi subsidiary and has historically focused heavily in the mid to affordable segment of smartphones. It has seen massive success in these ranges, especially with the Note series. Now, its latest entry named Redmi Note 8 has its designs leaked which showcases a quad camera setup.

The new camera setup would be a first in Redmi’s series of mid range smartphones. The company’s General Manager shared a post on Weibo which had a video that confirmed the mass production of a 64MP quad camera smartphone. Previously, we had separately reported on a 64MP camera on a Redmi device and a rumour on the Note 8. Now, it seems that it might just be one and the same.
According to a leaked render, the rear of the smartphone features a vertical camera setup that consists of quad camera sensors. It is identical to the mass production video of a smartphone shared online. Hence, it seemingly confirms that the Redmi Note 8 will feature a 64MP quad camera setup. Notably, the confirmation of the 64MP quad camera smartphone arrived half a month prior but didn’t reveal the name.
The image leaked of the Redmi Note 8 portrays a vertically stacked triple camera module flanked by a fourth sensor on the left side. On top of the lone fourth sensor is a dual tone LED flash. The back carries the signature Redmi branding with a “designed by Xiaomi” tag. It can be observed that the left of the device houses the the volume rockers while the right features the power button. Furthermore, there is no indication of a rear mounted fingerprint scanner. So, it is likely to feature an in display fingerprint scanner.
The Redmi Note 8 will arrive in gradient colour schemes, as seen in the image. Additionally, the Note 8 Pro variant could be the first smartphone to sport the Helio G90T SoC which is a gaming centric chipset. Unfortunately, the exact launch date and specifications regarding the Note 8 are still a mystery. The smartphone is yet to be made official with any announcements either so users could take this report with a grain of salt. More updates are expected to arrive soon, so stay tuned.
