With the launch of the Redmi Note 8-Series with Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi, the company is now preparing to introduce the alleged successor to the Redmi 7-Series, allegedly Redmi 8, Redmi 8A, and Redmi 8 as pro. In the last few weeks, we have had several leaks that claim to reveal many features of one or the other Redmi 8-series phones. Now, a new Xiaomi phone with model number M1908C3KE has popped up in the database of Chinese regulator TENAA and is believed to be the Redmi 8A.
The TENAA listing does not reveal many of the phone’s specs, although it notes that the phone will pack 4G LTE connectivity, dual-SIM card slots, and run on the Android operating system.
Images published by TENAA show a single rear camera with LED flash and a front shooter. The exact front design is unclear, but it appears that the company is using a waterdrop-style notch. Additionally, the SIM card slot and volume rocker can be seen on the left side of the phone as well as the power button on the right side of the phone. No other information is available at this point. The alleged Redmi 8A TENAA listing was first spotted by a Slashleaks contributor.
The TENAA listing is in sharp contrast with previous leaks that showed a dual rear camera setup on the back of the phone. It is quite possible that the phone seen in the previous leak was Redmi 8, not Redmi 8A. The Redmi 8 also popped up on TENAA last month and looks similar to the phone in the leaked “Redmi AA Photos”.
As Xiaomi has not yet said anything official about the Redmi 8 series, there is a lot of confusion about the lineup. Hopefully, these visuals on TENAA and other certification websites mean that the official announcement is around the corner and we’ll get all the official details soon.
