Xiaomi has launched a new colour variant of the Redmi Note 8 Pro in India that flaunts an electric blue gradient design on its glossy rear panel. Xiaomi calls this new avatar of the Redmi Note 8 Pro - Electric Blue. Interestingly, the Redmi Note 8 Pro's Electric Blue paintjob looks a lot like the phone's Deep Sea Blue colour variant that was launched for the Taiwanese market earlier this month, and the Ocean Blue colour variant teased by the company's global handle. The Redmi Note 8 Pro's Electric Blue colour option will go on sale for the first time tomorrow starting at 12pm (noon) in India.

Aside from an Electric Blue paintjob, the Redmi Note 8 Pro also comes in Gamma Green, Halo White, and Shadow Black colour options. As we mentioned, the Electric Blue colour variant appears to be identical to the Deep Sea Blue colour variant launched in Taiwan recently, and the Ocean Blue colour variant teased by the company handle.
