Xiaomi is adding NFC support for the global variant

Like most of the Chinese market-oriented smartphones, the original Redmi Note 8 doesn’t support NFC technology. That’s why it does make sense that the Chinese smartphone firm will release the new Redmi Note 8T for the global market with added NFC support. In fact, the latest NCC Certification from Taiwan just confirmed the device’s new features, including support for NFC technology. The Taiwan NCC Certification also suggests that the Chinese firm could now be working on the official launch event.

The mobile world could expect even more about this new handset in the coming days. Stay tuned for more updates about the new Redmi Note 8T handset.
