HIGHLIGHTS
  • Helio G90T based on 12nm process was launched last month
  • The Redmi Note 8 series will be launched on August 29
  • Another real image has surfaced online revealing design details

Redmi Note 8 Pro will be powered by the 12nm Helio G90T SoC, MediaTek has confirmed. Xiaomi recently announced that the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro will be launched in China on August 29. The phones should arrive in India soon after. The Helio G90 SoC range was launched recently, and Xiaomi VP Manu Kumar Jain had confirmed then that the company plans to launch a new phone with the Helio G90T SoC. Additionally, the Redmi Note 8 Pro has been spotted in a live image yet again, revealing the back panel.

Chinese giant MediaTek took to Weibo to confirm that the Helio G90T SoC will power the upcoming Redmi Note 8 Pro. The Helio G90T SoC was introduced last month, wherein Jain had also confirmed that a Redmi phone with the Helio G90T SoC will be launched soon. The new 12nm based SoC comes with MediaTek’s HyperEngine game technology that is touted to deliver an enhanced gaming experience on smartphones. It also has an octa-core CPU, paired with ARM Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU. The Taiwanese company claimed that the combination delivers up to 1TMACs (TeraMAC) performance.

The octa-core CPU includes ARM Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 cores at a maximum clock speed of 2.05GHz. The SoCs also have Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU clocked at up to 800MHz. The Helio G90T supports up to 90Hz displays, 10GB RAM, and 64-megapixel primary sensor on a quad camera setup. It could be possible that the Redmi Note 8 may be powered by the lesser powered Helio G90 SoC. Of course, this is pure conjecture from our end
