After launching its Mi 9 smartphone, Xiaomi has been working on a new Redmi flagship device that will be powered by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. The image of the device was leaked earlier this month which depicts that the upcoming Redmi flagship which confirms the processor used in it. And now, another image has been leaked online which sheds light on some aspects of the Redmi’s upcoming smartphone.
The new leaked image shows that the unnamed Redmi flagship device will pack a triple-rear camera setup and will have a centre-positioned pop-up selfie camera. The handset in the leaked image has a bright red colour, and it should be noted that Xiaomi has already confirmed that the upcoming Redmi smartphone will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC. But till now, there is no news about the launch date, internal specifications, market availability and the pricing of the device.
The news about the upcoming Redmi device housing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC was confirmed by Redmi’s Chief Lu Weibing. He had said that the device was still in the making, but other than the processor, no details about the device were disclosed. Xiaomi’s chief, Lei Jun was also spotted with the device earlier, and at that time it was reported that the upcoming Redmi handset will come with a pop-up selfie camera with a full-screen display. And being a flagship device, the upcoming Redmi device is expected to be launched in the high-end smartphone segment.
Talking about the latest leaked image, the image was spotted on Chinese microblogging platform Weibo which shows the smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera. And the device in the image also has antenna bands which could mean that the upcoming Redmi smartphone may come with a metallic build. The handset in the leaked image has a bright red colour scheme and it looks similar to the smartphone which was leaked earlier with the Xiaomi’s CEO.
Like mentioned above, the image also shows that the device will pack a triple-rear camera setup with an LED flash and a front pop-up selfie camera. Earlier, a poster was leaked online which showed the Redmi 2 Pro will feature a pop-up selfie camera and there were claims that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC. It was also expected that the Redmi 2 Pro is the new flagship device of the company, but the design of both the smartphones is different, which falsifies that claim. Other than the camera and the CPU, more news about the devices are currently unknown so we will have to wait for the launch to find out more about the smartphones.
