Here's Why The Redmi 8 Comes With Snapdragon 439

Snapdragon 439 SoC can perform as well as Snapdragon 625 since it is produced on the 12nm process, and with Mi Turbo, users will get a better experience.

The Redmi 8 has various upgrades overs the Redmi 7. But under the hood, it is powered with a Snapdragon 439 SoC that is less powerful than the SD632 SoC of the Redmi 7. Lu Weibing, Redmi’s General Manager has recently told the reason why they chose the SD400-lineup chipset.

He said on Weibo that the company conducted a research before the launch of the phone to know which features users want most. High-quality build, fast and smooth experience and battery life ranked highest. Therefore, the brand decided to pay attention to these features for the upcoming phones.

Accordingly, the Redmi 8/8A has a 5,000 mAh battery with 31-day standby time, a USB-C port, and 18W quick charging tech support that can fully charge the device within 2 hours.

Additionally, the brand decided to cancel the 2GB of RAM variant to ensure smoother operation. They also equipped Mi Turbo 2.0 to boost the speed of the phone and adopted an improved memory cleaning solution. According to the company, based on the simulation, the phone will only slow down by 35 percent after being used in 24 months.

Regarding the downgrade of the chipset, the brand said that despite being a Snapdragon 400-lineup SoC, its performance is almost as powerful as that of Snapdragon 625 SoC. The post also has AnTuTu benchmarking results that compare the SN439-powered Redmi 8 and the SD625-powered Redmi 6 Pro. Weibing explained that the SD439 can perform as well as the SD625 as it’s a 12nm SoC and with built-in Mi Turbo, customers will have a smooth and fast experience.

The executive concluded that those who focus on performance can buy the Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi 7 powered by SD665 SoC while those who seek a phone with better battery can buy the Redmi 8 or the Redmi 8A.
