Xiaomi's global Twitter handle has announced a new colour variant of the Redmi Note 8 Pro. This new colour option called Ocean Blue looks very much identical to the Deep Sea Blue colour option that was launched in Taiwan earlier this month. And now, the Ocean Blue colour joins the already available hues — Shadow Black, Gamma Green, and Halo White, and takes the tally to four colour options of the Redmi Note 8 Pro. To recall, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 Pro in China in late August, while the official debut in India happened in mid-October.
As it can be seen in Xiaomi global's Twitter post, the Redmi Note 8 Pro will soon be offered in a new Ocean Blue colour variant. Now, as we mentioned above, the new colour variant looks pretty much identical to the Deep Sea Blue colour option that was announced for the Taiwanese market earlier this month.
Since Xiaomi's global Twitter handle tweeted out the announcement, it appears the company is teasing the launch of the new Redmi Note 8 Pro Ocean Blue colour variant for regions outside of China and Taiwan. One must note however that Xiaomi hasn't specified in which region this new colour will be launched. It can be launched in India, China, or maybe other markets, and this remains to be seen. Also, there's no mention of the launch date as well.
Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 Pro in India at a starting price of Rs. 14,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, while its 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option is priced at Rs. 15,999, and lastly, the top-of-the-line 8GB RAM + 128GB storage model carries a price tag of Rs. 17,999.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro features 6.53-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The phone comes with the waterdrop-style display notch and is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back. The smartphone runs on MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie and is powered by the octa-core MediaTek Helio G90T SoC. There's also a 4,500mAh battery under the hood that supports 18W fast charging support.
In terms of cameras, the Redmi Note 8 Pro offers the quad rear camera setup that includes the 64-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.89 lens.
