A leak a few weeks ago claimed that Xiaomi was set to release a Snapdragon 730G-powered Redmi Note 8T. A new report counters that, though, and while a Redmi Note 8T may actually be on the way, fans of the company are unlikely to be thrilled about what it will offer.

A few weeks, we reported that Xiaomi was planning to launch a Redmi Note 8T after the lukewarm reception of the Redmi Note 8. According to the source of that particular report, the Note 8T would be powered by a Snapdragon 730G. A new leak has now debunked that, though.

According to the new leak, the Redmi Note 8T actually is in the works. However, it will not be powered by Qualcomm's sub-premium SoC, the Snapdragon 730G. In fact, the Note 8T will be the exact same device as the regular Redmi Note 8, albeit with the addition of one feature: NFC.

You heard that right. The Note 8T will apparently just be a Note 8 with NFC support. We're not sure what the logic behind such a brain-dead product release would even be. Surely, it would've made more sense to just include NFC on the original Note 8, especially since the Note 8 Pro has that feature? But then again, this is Xiaomi, a company that has taken to releasing dozens of devices within a particular price segment.

The Remi Note 8T is said to be exclusive to the European and Russian markets.

You'd do well to take all of this with a pinch of salt.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
