Original story (published on January 18, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi has a bunch of smartphones under the mid-range segment. Moreover, the company disrupted the smartphone market, especially in India via these budget-to-mid-range smartphones.

In fact, over the years, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has added a lot of new featureful mid-rangers that pack in some awesome specs for the price.

Recently back in 2019, they added yet another decent mid-ranger called the Redmi Note 8 Pro in their portfolio. To recall, the device packs in Helio G9oT chipset, 6/8 GB of RAM, a 6.53-inch display, 4,500 mAh battery.

In the camera department, it houses a quad-camera setup with 64 MP primary camera and also sports a fingerprint scanner at the back.

And if you are the owner of the Redmi Note 8 Pro in China, then you are in for a treat as the Android 10 stable update is available for download.

For a reminder, PiunikaWeb reader should know that the device got the Android 10 beta update with MIUI 11 back in November 2019 in China.
