Redmi 8: All we know so far
Thanks to all the teasers by Redmi India so far, we already know that the Redmi 8 will feature a dual-camera setup at the back, will be scratch and splash resistant, and it will come with something called 'Battery Camera Action'. Since it's an upgrade for the Redmi 8A, which comes with a 5,000 mAh battery, a large battery capacity can also be expected from the Redmi 8.
