If you want to name the most popular models in the Redmi Note lines in the recent times, the Redmi Note 8 cannot be pushed aside. It is so popular that Xiaomi decided to bring it back this year with upgraded internals. The Redmi Note 8 2021 is coming!
Xiaomi has confirmed earlier reports regarding the re-introduction of the new Redmi Note 8 via its official account. The phone was also confirmed to launch as the Redmi Note 8 2021. This is unusual considering that the Redmi Note 8 has already received two successors – the Redmi Note 9 and the Redmi Note 10 – and both are great devices.

In addition, according to the tweet, Xiaomi also revealed that it has sold over 25 million units of the original Redmi Note 8 phone globally. While that is a lot considering that Xiaomi revealed earlier today that it has sold over 200 million Redmi Note phones since the series was established up until February 24, 2021, we are not sure if the 25 million units include sales of the Redmi Note 8T which is practically the NFC version of the Redmi Note 8.
