Hii, Mi Fans!

So, Redmi 8, the new Xiaomi smartphone in Redmi 8 Series is here!! And it has Some Major Improvement alongside Dual Rear Camera Setup With Massive Battery, Type C Port and much more. There are so many amazing things I can talk about it but today I'm gonna talk about the Heart Of Redmi 8: Which is the processor, the Snapdragon 439 which powers Redmi 8!!

The Reason Behind Choice Of Snapdragon 439:

Firstly, let me discuss why this chip was chosen to power this awesome device! Xiaomi VP and Redmi General Manage Mr.Lu Weibing himself has explained in an official post why Snapdragon 439 was chosen to power Redmi 8. There were a number of surveys carried out before the release of the Redmi 8 to find out which features matter most to users. The result of the survey showed that battery life, smooth and fast experience, and a high-quality build ranked highest. So, Redmi decided to focus on these points for the next series of smartphones.

The result is the Redmi 8, having a 5000mAh battery capacity with a standby time of 31 days; addition of a USB Type-C port; and support for 18W fast charging allowing for the device to be fully charged in 2 hours. Coming down to the processor, Even though its a Snapdragon 400 series chipset, its performance is near similar to that of the Snapdragon 625.

The post even includes AnTuTu benchmark results comparing the Redmi 6 Pro (SD625) and Redmi 8 (SD439). Mr. Weibing explains that the Snapdragon 439 is able to achieve similar performance to the Snapdragon 625 because it is a 12nm chipset, and with Mi Turbo onboard, users will get a fast and smooth experience.
