Moving on, the other midrange phone to look out is the Redmi Note 8 Pro. It comes as a direct successor of the Note 7 Pro and is one of the most hyped Xiaomi devices in recent dates. Though the device will launch with the MIUI 10 in the beginning, users should expect the recently launched MIUI 11 as of reading this article.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro has a bigger 6.53-inch display as compared to the Note 8. It has a Full HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It too is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides. And similar to the Note 8, it too has a waterdrop notch upfront.
One of the most exciting aspects of this device is that it is the first one to be powered by the MediaTek Helio G90T processor. It is a gaming-centric processor and should allow users to play graphic-intensive games on their devices. Furthermore, the device also comes with liquid cooling technology and Game Turbo 2.0 to complement its gaming capabilities.
Redmi Note 8 Pro Camera: Is it any good?
Talking about the camera, the Redmi Note 8 Pro has a quad-camera setup on the back. However, its primary lens is a 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. Hence, you get better images as compared to the cheaper Redmi Note 8.
The cam setup is completed by an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP dedicated ultra-macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. As for the front camera, a powerful 20MP selfie shooter is housed inside the waterdrop notch.
And that’s not it. The cameras come with an array of features too. For instance, it supports 64MP HD, Ultra nightscape mode, Smart Ultra-Wide Angle to name a few. Furthermore, the front camera too supports features such as Panorama selfie, AI scene detection, Palm shutter and many more.
It too will be available in two RAM variants with the base variant being 6GB and the other of 8GB. The storage on board will be either 64GB or 128GB on the 6GB variant and 128GB for the 8GB variant. Furthermore, there is a dedicated microSD slot available for those who want to upgrade their internal storage.
Moreover, for its daily tasks, the device will rely on a huge 4,500mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. And similar to the Redmi Note 8, the fast charger will be bundled along with the retail box.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro Price in Nepal [Updated]
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is still available in Nepal. The official price of Redmi Note 8 Pro for the base 6/64GB version in Nepal is Rs. 26,999. You can also get the 6/128GB variant for a price of Rs. 29,999 if higher storage is your priority. Similarly, the 8GB variant with 128GB storage costs Rs. 32,999.
As for value, I think you should buy the 6/128GB variant. For me, 64GB is not ample in 2020, and 8GB is just overkill.
