There Won't Be Redmi Note 8 Pro With Snapdragon 730G: Xiaomi Executive

Xiaomi India's head of marketing just confirmed the sad truth that there won't be a model of the Redmi Note 8 Pro with Snapdragon 730G SoC.

Redmi Note 8 & Note 8 Pro were released in India last month. While the former features a Snapdragon 665 SoC, the latter is packed with an Helio P90T gaming chipset. Recently, many reports suggested that Xiaomi was working on a new model of the Redmi Note 8 Pro with a Snapdragon 730G SoC, as a mysterious Xiaomi smartphone received 3C certification in China. However, head of marketing at Xiaomi India Anuj Sharma ended these rumors in his latest Tweet. Responding to a tweet about the rumor, he confirmed that there was no such model in the works. It is quite disappointing since many Xiaomi fans were hoping for a model of the Pro model with a Snapdragon processor instead.
