The Chinese OEM has officially teased the Redmi Note 8 2021. Xiaomi made the announcement while revealing the worldwide sales figures for the original Redmi Note 8.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer confirmed the existence of the new Redmi Note 8 2021 on its official Xiaomi Twitter account. According to the company, over 25 million units of the Redmi Note 8 2019 edition were sold globally. To commemorate the occasion, Xiaomi has announced that an upgrade version will be available for its customers.
The Redmi Note series was first introduced in 2014, and it quickly became a popular smartphone line due to its low cost and feature-rich offerings. The Redmi Note 8 has two successors in the lineup: the Redmi Note 9 and the Redmi Note 10, both of which have sold a million units. While it’s not surprising that Xiaomi releases a new phone every other month, the Redmi Note 8 2021 is likely added to the list to put its competitors on notice.
The upcoming Redmi Note 8 2021, on the other hand, has allegedly appeared on FCC and EEC certification websites. Both sites revealed some of the device’s most important features.
