Redmi Note 8T was the first in Xiaomi's Redmi 8 series to launch in the UK on 29 November, but other models in the budget- and mid-range phone family have yet to make their way here.
Though some models have already launched elsewhere in Europe, to buy any of these phones in the UK you must ship them from abroad. Based on their European retail prices we can have a pretty good guess at how much they will cost when they eventually arrive here, and these Black Friday deals look to offer significant savings.
