After launching a tempered glass screen protector for the Redmi Note 8 Pro back in December, the Company has launched Mi Protective Glass for Redmi Note 8 for Rs. 399. Xiaomi says that the Mi Protective Glass is made in association with Corning. Comprising of multiple layers that include an oleophobic coating, Xiaomi claims a 5X protection improvement over local soda lime tempered glass, says the company. It offers high visibility for full clarity and color and is rated with 9H hardness.
Since the sensor placement and display size on older Redmi Note 7 series is the same as Xiaomi Redmi Note 8, it should work on those phones too. I hope we can expect similar tempered glass for more Redmi phones in the future.
The Mi Protective Glass for the Redmi Note 8 is available for purchase online on Mi.com for a price of Rs. 399. In the other news, Xiaomi has increased the price of Redmi Note 8 4GB + 64GB version by Rs. 500.
