Will Redmi Note 8 Pro get EU ROM?

Since the launch of the Redmi Note 8 Pro a few days ago, I've had this nagging question. Considering the fact that the Redmi Note 8 Pro is powered by a MediaTek Soc, is there still going to be an EU ROM for the phone. I'm considering buying it as a replacement for my still very active Note 5 (Whyred). I know the Note 8 (non-Pro) is powered by a Snapdragon chipset but the Pro version seems to pack a lot more punch than the non-pro version.
I hope this question is not against the rules. If it is, I apologise.

Not sure bro. As far as I know is difficult to make a Rom for phones powered with Mediatek, cause they don't provide the source code, so the people can't work with it and make roms easily. They still have an option, but is making reverse engineering from machine language (0 and 1) to low level code (c, c++, java, etc) and this is too difficult to do.

Sorry for my english, english is not my first language.

Currently there are no plans to support Redmi Note 8 Pro. We might consider it if we somehow get hold of a device to test on, but otherwise it's not worth the headache blindly trying to fix support for it.

Its gonna be MediaTek phone it will cause lots of problems to devs that are gonna build custom ROMs. I would suggest skipping this one and wait for Note 9 or buy Note 7.

Thanks for clarifying. I'll go for Mi 9T instead.

I have used a few MediaTek powered devices in the past and I had to learn to Port ROMs from other devices. But it's never the same as having access to the Kernel Source.

Thank you for your suggestion. Maybe I'll just increase my budget so I can get the Mi 9T.
