What is the current price of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 in Nigeria right now?
First of all, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 smartphone might be old, but, it’s still gold, and if you must, the current price of this phone in Nigeria right now is valued at about 76,700 Nigerian Naira as we speak.
If you were thinking that I was actually talking about the two-year-old Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 smartphone, then the joke is on you, cause I’m actually talking about the 2021 revised version of the phone.
No one ever told you there was a 2021-revised Redmi Note 8? Well, that’s because Xiaomi didn’t really make a big deal of it, and it was only officially announced in selected regions, but, guess what, I’m doing that now, and just in case you’re still in doubt about it, you can follow the link below to compare the specs of the original Redmi Note 8 phone, to that of its recently announced 2021 counterpart.
So, on here, you’re basically getting the same phone as the original Redmi Note 8, but, with just a few different touches here and there.
For starters, the 11nm Snapdragon 665 processor that was present on the first Redmi Note 8 has been swapped for the 12nm tested and trusted gaming-optimized Mediatek Helio G85 chipset, and while the 2019 Redmi Note 8 won’t be getting any new Android version updates anymore, the new Redmi Note 8 actually came with Android 11 pre-installed, and it should be getting updated to Android 12 when the time comes, alongside any new MIUI software version and features that come with it.
Aside from these two differences which I’ve just pointed out, the 2021 Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 phone is basically no different from its 2019 elder sibling.
The phone’s design was carried over from 2019, all the way to 2021, you’re getting the same 6.3 Inches Full HD+ IPS LCD display, protected with a sheet of Corning Gorilla 5 on it, and another sheet of Gorilla Glass 5 on the back of the phone too, making up for a front and back glass build, a material choice you’ll hardly find on related midrange phones from other brands and even from Xiaomi themselves nowadays.
You get to choose between 3 or 4GB of RAM capacity and 64 or 128GB of internal storage capacity.
For cameras, you’re getting exactly the same front and rear camera setup as it was in 2019, and this makes up for a 48MP main sensor on the back, accompanied closely by an 8MP ultrawide sensor, and two separate 2MP sensors, one for taking macro shots, while the other one being used for depth sensing purposes.
On the front is a 13MP wide-angle sensor.
The battery tank on this thing is a 4000mAh capacity, with the charging speed capped at 18W, which was considered substantially fast back in 2019, and it does so via a USB Type-C charging port.
The 2019 Xiaomi Redmi Note phone doesn’t have or boast of any features like stereo speakers, an IP rating, or even a high refresh rate display, and that’s because those features were mainly reserved for the flagship phones back then, and so, even the newer model of the phone doesn’t boast of any of those features.
So, with aging specs such as these, should you really be willing to buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021-revised version at a given price tag of 76,700 Naira, are there better phones out there with better specs that we can find at about the same price as the Redmi Note 8 2021 version?
Well, if you asked me, my answer is definitely gonna be “Yes“, you should buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 revised edition at that price, because,. at that price, there are definitely no better phones out there, no matter how much you search for them.
You might only succeed in getting phones with bigger battery sizes, say anywhere from 5000mAh to 6000mAh, but, with same 18W charging speed or even lesser, and you might still succeed in getting phones with bigger camera megapixel numbers, say up to 64MP, but, as we all know, bigger camera megapixel numbers don’t necessarily translate to better pictures, especially when you’re dealing with phones in the budget to mid-range segment.
So, personally, I think that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 is a good bargain at its current price in Nigeria at the moment, so, if that looks like a phone you will want to own, you can go ahead and follow the link below to snag one for yourself.
And, that basically tells us everything we need to know about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 version, along with its current price in Nigeria, and how it differs from its 2019 sibling.
