Redmi Note 8 series was highly popular with the large volume of Redmi Note 8 smartphones sold globally. The first Note 8 device was launched in 2019 and now the company has re-launched the same phone with minor upgrades. But the company has compromised on its upgrade as most of the specs stay the same. Let us look at the specs, features, price, and availability of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 in Nepal.
Redmi Note 8 2021 Overview
Display and Design
There is no change in the display- it packs the same old 6.5-inch IPS LCD that has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. For protection, the front display has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 included to protect against accidental drops and scratches. In terms of design, the phone has the same look and feel as the previous Note 8 device so, the device looks a little outdated. The vertically elongated pill-shaped camera notch stays the same in the new device. It also sports the smoky pattern design and the Redmi branding at the back of the phone.
At the front, the traditional teardrop notch is spotted for the selfie snapper. Xiaomi has not even changed its fingerprint location- it is still embedded in the rear panel which is boring to watch because smartphones these days at least have a side-mounted scanner for fingerprint. Color options in this device include Neptune Blue, Moonlight White, and Space Black.
Performance and Memory
The device is driven by a 12nm Helio G85 chipset from MediaTek- the same processor was spotted in the last year’s Redmi Note 9. The 2019 edition Note 8 however packs Snapdragon 665 (11nm) which is less powerful compared with an Helio G85 chipset. Here, graphic rendering is handled by the Mali-G52 MC2 GPU. Speaking of the software it runs on MIUI 12.5 which is based on Android 11.
Moving on to the memory, it offers 4GB RAM that comes in both 64GB and 128GB internal storage options. Also, the phone’s storage can be expanded by using an SD card if necessary.
When it comes to the camera, the phone features its quad-camera at the back including a 48MP primary camera accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth lens. All the rear cameras stay the same as before with no change in the selfie camera as well. The 16MP front camera can record 1080p at 30fps video recording. Similarly, the back cameras record 1080p video up to 120fps.
Battery and Extras
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 2021 is powered by a 4000mAh non-removable battery that can offer a full day of long-lasting power. It comes with a 22.5W charger that supports 18W fast charging out-of-the-box. The device supports FM radio, dual-band Wi-Fi, Infrared port, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.2, etc.
Redmi Note 8 2021 Price in Nepal and Availability

The price might vary after it launches here in Nepal- we will update the price after its arrival.
