Xiaomi is launching the Redmi Note 8 series in India, and it's a shame that the new phones won't come with MIUI 11 out of the box. If anything, Redmi Note 8 users will have to wait until a month to see the update, with Redmi Note 8 Pro customers not seeing MIUI 11 until late December — that's a huge miss for Xiaomi.
The Redmi K20 Pro offers everything you're looking for in a value flagship. You get a gorgeous design backed by a Snapdragon 855 chipset. 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 48MP camera that takes great shots.
