First: the design
Come Redmi Note 8 2021 With the same features that appeared in 2019, as it was the first phone in this price category, it comes with a glass back protected by a fifth generation protection layer with a plastic frame. The phone comes with dimensions of 15.8 cm in length and 7.5 cm in width and 8.4 mm thickness and weighs 190 g, which makes it very suitable for handling With it with one hand easily and without fear, on the right of the phone we find the power button above the volume control button, on the left we find the SIM card port that supports the installation of two communication cards and an external memory card, from below we find the Type C charging port with a 3.5 mm headphone port The ear, the external speaker port, and the microphone for calls.
From the top, we find an IR BLASTER port with an additional microphone for noise isolation. From the front, we find that the screen represents 81.7% of the total area of the phone interface with it from the top of a small notch that includes the front camera, which became an old design in 2021. From the back, we find that Redmi still maintains its The severe frame of the cameras, which was strange to us, plus the fingerprint sensor is still behind the phone
The overall design is that the phone is an exact copy of the 2019 version without changes at all, which Xiaomi said is a re-issue of one of their most successful phones ever.
Second: the screen
The Redmi Note 8 2021 comes with a 6.3-inch IPS LCD screen, FHD +, with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, at a pixel density of 409 pixels per inch, with a brightness rate of up to 409 lumens, protected by a layer of gorilla corning glass 5, and the screen supports dimensions of 9.5:9, Screen brightness is not the best among competitors, especially in direct daylight. In addition, it supports 60 Hz only.
Third: the gear
The most important change, and perhaps the only change in the 2021 version, is the processor, where Redmi put a processor from MediaTek, which is G 85 HELIO, and it will be available in one version of internal memory and 64 GB RAM with 4 GB RAM
It will work on the Android 11 platform and the MIUI 12.5 operating interface.
Redmi Note 8 2021 achieved on the Antutu platform 179759 points, and his experience in games, especially heavy ones like PUBG, was okay, but he will have many competitors in the same price range, especially from Xiaomi itself. Will he achieve the same success or not? Tell us your opinions in the comments.

Redmi Note 8 2021 does not support shooting 4K videos with a resolution of 2160 pixels at 30 frames per second as it was in the old version as a direct result of using the MediaTek processor that does not support this technology, but it supports shooting FHD videos with a resolution of 1080 pixels at a capture rate of 30, 60 and 120 frames per second It also supports 720p HD photography at a capture rate of 960 frames per second. We will leave you with samples for filming. The Akhmal camera comes with accuracy. With the applications of artificial intelligence that improve the images captured, the cameras were able to provide good images in good and medium lighting conditions with clear details and sharp images, but in poor shooting conditions, their quality was medium to poor.
