The phone is expected to ditch Qualcomm Snapdragon processors for the newly launched MediaTekHelio G90T. Xiaomi is also working on a gaming phone which will make use of the MediaTekHelio G90T.
A 64 MP camera phone is also coming from Xiaomi. It is speculated that the Redmi Note 8 will have the 64 MP camera but nothing has been confirmed by Xiaomi yet.
