Just a few weeks back, Xiaomi publicly introduced their latest pair of Redmi Note devices, the Redmi Note 8 series. The Redmi Note 8 Pro was the clear star of the show, featuring a quad 64MP camera setup, a decently performing MediaTek Helio G90T processor, and an extensive feature set. Redmi also announced a regular “non-Pro” Note 8, of course. This one seemed like more of an iterative update than anything as it features modest upgrades over its predecessor. It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, a quad-camera setup with a main 48MP sensor, and other minor improvements.
The Pro model’s kernel source code was released a while back and now Xiaomi has released the kernel sources for the non-Pro version as well. With both devices having readily available kernel sources, this means that developers should now be able to start building custom kernels, port TWRP, and build AOSP-based ROMs. If you’re a developer and you’re interested in developing for the Redmi Note 8, check out the link below for the “gingko-p-oss” release!
