Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro in India last month. While both phones offer a good value for money, the Note 8 Pro holds a few advantages over the regular Note 8. For starters, the Pro offers a bigger 6.53-inch display and a MediaTek Helio G90T processor, compared to the 6.3-inch display and the Snapdragon 665 on the regular Note 8. Similarly, in the camera department, even though both phones come with a quad-camera setup, the Note 8 Pro gets an edge with a 64MP primary shooter as opposed to 48MP on the regular Note 8.
Considering you got yourself one, you must definitely protect it with a case. So here are some of our recommendations for the best cases for Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro.
1. Spigen Rugged Armor Case
Spigen is one brand that has a variety of cases for a wide range of devices, and the Rugged Armor is one such case for the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
