Xiaomi told why Redmi 8 received a Snapdragon 439 chip instead of a Snapdragon 632

After the announcement of Redmi 8, some fans of the company were upset that the new product received a weaker processor,

than its predecessor Redmi 7. Therefore, Xiaomi had to explain why it took such a step.

What did they say?

According to the head of the Redmi division, LiuWeibing (Lu Weibing), the manufacturer conducted several surveys before deciding on the “filling” of the smartphone. As it turned out, most users preferred to have a high-power 5000 mAh battery with 18 W fast charging, a USB-C port and high-quality build rather than a more powerful chip. Therefore, the engineers chose the Snapdragon 439 SoC instead of the Snapdragon 632.

Liu Weibing also said that the company optimized this processor as much as possible, and also specially removed the modification with 2 GB of RAM and added the Mi Turbo 2.0 graphics acceleration mode to the system.

Let us remind you that Redmi 8 also received a 6.22-inch display with a waterdrop notch, protective glass Corning Gorilla Glass 5, a dual main camera of 12 MP + 2 MP and an 8-megapixel front camera.
