Redmi Note 8 Pro Special Edition model to soon launch in India, teases Xiaomi

Redmi Note 8 Pro is powered by MediaTek G90T chipset and houses a 4,500 mAh battery.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 Pro (Review) in India last year at a starting price of Rs 14,999 but it's price was recently increased to Rs 15,999 due to hike in GST rates.

While the Redmi Note 9 series is already launched and selling in the Indian market, Xiaomi has announced that it will launch a Special Edition of Redmi Note 8 Pro in India soon.

The official company tweet confirms that a "new special edition is about to join" the Redmi Note 8 Pro family. While it's not entirely clear yet, but going by the teaser, it could just be a new colour variant of the smartphone.

Since the teaser shows the hints of red and orange colours, which is the same as the Twilight Orange that was introduced in China back in January this year, it is expected that said special edition will come in the same colour variant. Right now, the smartphone is available in just Electric Blue, Gamma Green, Halo White, and Shadow Black colour variants.
