Xiaomi Redmi recently launched its selfie-centric smartphone, the Redmi Y3 and the budget-centric device, the Redmi 7 in India. With the launch of two new smartphones Xiaomi is strengthening its Redmi sub-brand. Earlier, the General Manager of Redmi, Lu Weibing had confirmed that the company was working on a flagship Redmi smartphone which would be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC.
After his confirmation, there had been a number of leaks and rumours about the upcoming Redmi flagship smartphone. Although the leaks revealed some features of the device, but they didn’t reveal the main specifications about the smartphone. Now, a new leak has surfaced online that reveals some of the main specifications of the Redmi flagship device, which was a mystery till now.
According to the leaks, the Redmi flagship phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and will have 8GB of RAM. There will also be a triple-rear camera setup along with a 32MP selfie camera similar to the Redmi Y3.
Redmi flagship smartphone specifications (the leaked ones)
According to a tipster on the Chinese social networking platform Weibo, the next Redmi flagship device will reportedly sport a 6.39-inch Full HD+ (1080 x 2340 pixels) display. It is already a known fact that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC, which is the latest flagship CPU from Qualcomm.
The leaks also reveal that the Redmi flagship will have 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage. But whether a microSD card slot will be present onboard the device is still unknown. It will most probably run on Android 9 Pie skinned with MIUI 10. Other than that, the battery capacity and fast charge support is currently unknown, too.
On the camera front, the Redmi flagship will reportedly feature a triple-rear camera setup with the main camera being a 48MP sensor paired with an 8MP secondary camera along with a 13MP tertiary camera. However, it is not clear which of these three camera sensors will have the wide-angle lens, the telephoto lens and the ultra-wide-angle lens or the depth sensor. Our guess is that the 8MP sensor will add depth to the images. And as mentioned above, the front camera will most probably be a 32MP selfie camera.
Other than the specifications mentioned above there is no word about the name or the model number of the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi flagship device or its launch data. And since the General Manager of Redmi himself has confirmed the news about the upcoming device it is clear that it will be launching in the coming weeks.
