After the launch of Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro, Xiaomi seems to be prepping the launch of another phone under the series. Today, a new Redmi device with model M1908C3XG has been spotted on Taiwan’s NCC certification website. Last month, the same model number was also spotted on the EEC certification website.
The Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro comes with model M1908C3JE and M1908C3IC respectively, so obviously unreleased model M1908C3XG will belong to Note 8 lineup. The marketing name of the M1908C3XG has been confirmed as Redmi Note 8T through the leaked retail package contents.
The NCC certification confirms that the Note 8T will support NFC. The listing also reveals the charger model number as MDY-10-ED which supports 5V / 3A, 9V / 2A, 12V / 1.5A output.
The specs sheet of the Redmi Note 8T has also surfaced online which shows that the only difference between Note 8 and Note 8T is the NFC support. As we all know, NFC isn’t present on the Note 8, but leaked images confirm that the Note 8T will arrive with multifunctional NFC support.

As per the information sticker (attached with the phone), the other specs will be similar to the Redmi Note 8 that includes Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, a 48MP quad rear camera setup, 6.3-inch display (dew-drop notch), Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both side, a 4,000mAh battery with support for 18W charger and a USB Type-C port.
Tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore claimed that the Redmi Note 8T will be available in three memory configurations – 3GB+32GB, 4GB+64GB and 4GB+128GB. Also, the phone will come with three colour variants – Moonshadow Grey, Moonlight White, and Starscape Blue. As for the pricing, the 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM variant is said to be priced at EUR 199 (roughly Rs. 15,600).
Xiaomi has not announced anything about the launch timeline. As the phone has received certifications from multiple platforms and leaks flooding the web, so we expect Redmi Note 8T will be launched very soon.
