wbpwns, 25 May 2021What's the point of this exactly? Why even name it as ... moreThe point is this was one of the best selling Xiaomi phones worldwide. I mean Redmi Note 8 2019 version.
Xiaomi is thinking that maybe some of those people will change the 2019 model with the 2021 model.
Even if half of those people will make the change, it will still be good.
Profit. That's the only point of this phone.

What's the point of this exactly? Why even name it as note 8? There's nothing extraordinary in hardware or software here

I'd love to see a camera/battery performance comparison in the review against the 2019 version. I used the original for a little while and liked it.

Anonymous, 25 May 2021These are new phones with new chipsets. They're not 2 ... moreYes they are. They obviously have too much stock left over after production of the Helio g85. That was used on last year's redmi note 9. They likely had too much stock left as the the redmi note 9 series did not sell so well at all. So it's not two years old but it's at least a year old and they're not going to really be able to put them into handsets in 2022 when the competition will be pushing forward.

It's just the redmi note 9 but with the last android

Price? If its too expensive, then maybe i will consider the redmi note 9 or 10, poco x3, poco m3 series
