Looks like Redmi is working on its next flagship smartphone which could be launched in China in the coming days. Yesterday, company has posted a video teaser on its official Weibo account showing a sequence of the latest ‘Avengers- Endgame’ movie with some of the images of the recently launched Redmi phones and at the end of the video, one can see a mysterious smartphone with notch-less display design along with a pop-up selfie camera. Moreover, the company used the word ‘flagship’ to tease this device.
Earlier, there were rumours that new Redmi flagship smartphone is expected to come with a Snapdragon 855 chipset and will have a pop-up front camera. However, Redmi General Manager, Lu Weibing had laid all speculations to rest by confirming the phone won’t have a pop-up selfie camera. But again contradictory to Lu Weibing’s statement, we are seeing a mysterious smartphone with Pop-up selfie camera in works.
As per earlier leaks and reports, the Redmi’s upcoming flagship device could come equipped with latest Snapdragon 855 chipset along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The smartphone is expected to sport a triple rear camera set up with a combination of a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP secondary sensor and 13MP third sensor. Furthermore, the device is expected to house an in-display fingerprint sensor and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
If we go by the Lu Weibing’s earlier statement, then the company might be working on two smartphones, one with Puch-hole design and another with pop-up selfie shooter.
