It actively interacts with: a wide-angle lens and a macro camera, which received a resolution of 8 and 2 megapixels, respectively.

A significant nuance of the device is the ability to record video at a speed of 960 fps.
"Frontalka" received one lens with a resolution of 20 megapixels.
The autonomy of the Redmi Note 8 Pro is powered by a 4500 mAh battery, equipped with 18W Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging. With its help, in just 35 minutes, it is possible to replenish 50% of the battery capacity, which was completely discharged before.

Testing and performance
After the announcement of Redmi Note 8 Pro in our country, electronics enthusiasts got hold of one of the device versions and tested it.
First, the performance of the gadget in benchmarks was checked. Recall that it is made using a 12-nm process technology, taking into account the interests of those who love games. With the help of the available HyperEngine technology, it is possible to increase the performance of the product during the gameplay.
In AnTuTu, the smartphone scored 228,006 points. If we compare this figure with the results of the flagships released in the second half of this year, we can conclude that this device is one of the best here.
This is also confirmed by the test result in the Work 2.0 Performance test benchmark PCMark, showing the capabilities of the gadget when performing everyday tasks: surfing the web, editing photos and videos, working with documents, etc. They scored 9901 points, which is one of the best results to date.
To assess the gaming performance of the product , the smartphone was tested using World of Tanks Blitz with maximum graphics settings. With HD textures enabled, the average was 60 fps. After about 15 minutes of playing, the Redmi Note 8 Pro's case got very hot. Immediately the frame rate drops began.
Therefore, it was concluded that if you want to use the device for playing for a long period of time, it is better to disable HD textures. Another option is to use medium settings in games.
The predecessor of the smartphone had a battery with a capacity that was 500 mAh lower than currently available. When testing battery capabilities , the screen brightness was set to 50% of the maximum possible. PCMark showed 10 hours 45 minutes.
This is frankly not enough, but keep in mind that the benchmark could give an incorrect result due to the lack of optimization for the new chipset.
