A device with Redmi branding and the model number M1908C3IC has been certified by the Chinese telecomms authority TENAA. It is believed that this device will be called the 8 on launch. It has dual cameras and 3 RAM SKUs.

Redmi has cleared a new phone, the M1908C3IC, with the Chinese regulator TENAA. This has sparked speculation that this device is the Redmi 8, and is thus a follow-up to the 7 released earlier this year. It has  dual 12+8MP cameras, a rear-facing fingerprint sensor and a 6.21-inch HD+ display.

These confirmed specs put the possible Redmi 8 at the low end of the smartphone market in 2019. This theory is supported by its 2.0GHz octa-core processor, pegged as the Snapdragon 439 in a new leak via Weibo.

The M1908C3IC also has variants with 2, 3 or 4GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64GB of fixed storage. It also supports microSD card expansion up to 512GB. Its TENAA listing suggests it has a black color option, although a new live image of what may be the same phone shows a rear panel in an attractive dark red shade.

The upcoming Redmi is also now projected to run MIUI 9.7.11 based on Android Pie (which is not the newest version of this ROM) and to have a 5000 mAh battery. This phone does not have an official release date yet, but just may launch alongside the Note 8, which may be a more premium prospect from this Xiaomi brand.
