Smartphone brand Xiaomi has launched the latest smartphone in its Redmi 8 series, and this one is called the Redmi 8T smartphone, unveiled at an event in Madrid, Spain. While it has currently been released for European audiences, it shall ship only from the 13th of November at a price of roughly Rs 14,000 (3GB RAM + 32GB variant) or Rs 19,600 (4GB RAM + 128GB variant).
A Xiaomi executive at the launch event said that NFC has been one of the highly demanded features from its customers. Thus the phone comes with NFC support accompanying an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 AIE processor paired with Adreno 610 GPU and up to 4GB LPDDR4X RAM.
With NFC, another prominent feature of the phone is support for 18W fast charging, powering a 4,000 mAh battery. It is the phones’ fast charging capabilities and NFC support that essentially set it apart from its predecessor, the Note 8 Pro.
