Redmi Note 8 Pro has got a new Coral Orange colour variant nearly a year after its launch. This variant was being teased by the company as a new special edition about to join the lineup and now, Xiaomi has made it official for the international consumers on Twitter. The Redmi Note 8 Pro now has five colour options to choose from, depending on the market. This includes the Electric Blue variant that was launched late last year. The Coral Orange colour option originally made its debut in the Chinese market as Twilight Orange back in January.
Redmi Note 8 Pro's Coral Orange variant will likely have the same price as the other colour options, as the tweet by the company does not specify a different price tag. To recall, the Redmi Note 8 Pro was launched in India in October last year at Rs. 14,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, Rs. 15,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option, and Rs. 17,999 for the top-of-the-line 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option. After the GST revision earlier this year, the phone is selling at Rs. 15,999 for 6GB + 64GB model, at Rs. 16,999 for the 6GB + 128GB model, and at Rs. 18,999 for the 8GB + 128GB model.
As of now, it is unclear if and when this new Coral Orange variant will hit the Indian market.
