Redmi Note 8 is getting a new colour variant in India. The smartphone was launched last month in Moonlight White, Neptune Blue, and Space Black colours. Xiaomi said there will also be a Cosmic Purple colour variant for the Redmi Note 8 that will launch later.

Redmi Note 8 Pro, on the other hand, is not seemingly getting another colour model. The smartphone was launched alongside the Redmi Note 8 with better specifications and higher pricing. Redmi Note 8 Pro comes in Halo White, Gamma Green, and Shadow Black colours.
For specifications, the Redmi Note 8 comes with a 6.39-inch FHD+ display with a small notch on the top. It runs MIUI 10 out of the box and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. The maximum storage capacity is 128GB, but it can be expanded using a microSD card of up to 512GB. The smartphone has a fingerprint sensor at the back.
There are four cameras on the Redmi Note 8’s back – a 48-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. For selfies, the smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel camera with features such as AI Beauty. The smartphone is backed by a 4000mAh battery that charges at up to 18W capacity via a USB-C port.
