A Mi Community forum moderator also mentions that a partial rollout has been started for the Redmi Note 8 and it will be pushed to the public if it is found to be stable enough. A super moderator in another post last week shared the download link for the Recovery ROM. If you own a Redmi Note 8 smartphone, you can go to Settings > About Phone > System Update to check for the latest MIUI 11 update.

The Redmi Note 8 was recently in the news as the Chinese smartphone maker launched a new Cosmic Purple colour variant for the smartphone.

To recall, at the launch of the MIUI 11 Global Stable ROM in India, Xiaomi had posted a rollout schedule, and the Redmi Note 8 was a part of Phase 3 on the timeline, from November 13 to November 29. As you can see, the Redmi Note 8 MIUI 11 update rollout seems to be on time. The Redmi Note 8 Pro was part of Phase 4 of rollouts, due to start from December 18, but that hasn't stopped some users from receiving it last month.

Some of the features of MIUI 11 listed out by Xiaomi are minimalistic design, dark mode, wallpaper carousel, dynamic video wallpapers, quick replies, updated Mi File Manager, and a lot more. Xiaomi is also rolling out Always-On display customisations for the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro which sport AMOLED displays.
