India already has two 64MP smartphones in the Realme XT and Samsung Galaxy A70s. But Xiaomi is also joining the fray with its Redmi Note 8 Pro.

The Chinese brand confirmed an October 16 launch date for the 64MP smartphone in India. Xiaomi initially stated at the end of August that the phone might only be available in India in eight weeks (i.e. end of October).

We have received about 64 Million queries from an infinite number of Mi fans for this.

Xiaomi’s mid-range phone delivers a load of features, starting with the Helio G90T processor, 6GB to 8GB of RAM, and 64GB to 128GB of storage. The Redmi Note 8 Pro also features a 4,500mAh battery.

The star of the show is the quad rear camera setup though, featuring a 64MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide snapper, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP depth sensor. A 20MP camera in a waterdrop notch handles selfies.

Xiaomi hasn’t revealed pricing just yet, but we’re expecting it to occupy a similar price segment as the Realme XT. For what it’s worth, the Note 8 Pro has a starting price of €250 ($274) in Europe and 1,399 yuan (~$196) in China.
