The Redmi Note 8 is possibly launching in China on August 29. At least that's what the rumours and leaks suggest. It is the same day when the Redmi TV 70-inch is launching, August 29. The Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has confirmed some details about the Redmi Note 8 already. He revealed that the Redmi Note 8 will be a much-upgraded version of the Redmi Note 7 launched earlier this year. He says that the Note 8 will come with better cameras, bigger battery and screen-to-body ratio than Note 7. Now, for the first time, live pictures of the Redmi Note 8 have leaked online. The photos show the phone partially and confirm some details about the phone.

Live pictures of the Redmi Note 8 have been leaked by popular tipster Slashleaks. The pictures don't show the phone completely but do reveal some key details like USB Type C. Redmi introduced USB Type C for Redmi Note series with the Redmi Note 7 phones. The photos also confirm that the Redmi Note 8 will come with a glass body (possibly Gorilla Glass 5) and the rear camera bump will sit in the middle and not sides. The pictures also show the alleged Redmi Note 8 with four cameras on the back panel.

To recall, quad-camera setup for Redmi Note 8 was also hinted by the previously leaked renders of the phone. The live photos show three cameras aligned vertically on the rear panel. These three cameras sit inside a single camera module. The fourth camera sits next to the camera module. This was also suggested by previously leaked renders.

The phones don't show a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel and this may mean that the Redmi Note 8 will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Having said that, this will be the first time that a Redmi Note phone will have the fingerprint under the display. The photos also reveal that the Redmi Note 8 will come with 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type C port, and single speaker grill. All these three things will sit at the bottom of the phone. Another report suggests that the Redmi Note 8 will come with 18W charging support.
