Xiaomi’s Redmi has officially confirmed to launch a flagship smartphone later this year. After the Redmi Note 7 Pro launch in China, the company has been continuously teasing about this new device. This is the first time, we will see a Redmi-branded smartphone with flagship hardware. The company now confirmed the device to feature 3.5mm audio port and will also support NFC. Until now, only the smartphones launched under the Mi series came with NFC support.
With the NFC supported Xiaomi device, the user can use Mi Pay for making contact-less payments and using the transit system. While the earlier leaks suggested it to come with the pop-up selfie camera, the company denied those rumors. We now expect it to come with the waterdrop notch display. Under the hood, the device will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform built on 7nm FinFET process.
The flagship Snapdragon chipset packs the powerful Kryo 485 CPU and Adreno 640 GPU. It is rumored to support wireless charging technology. However, there is no official confirmation from the company. With the Mi 9, Xiaomi introduced the world’s fastest wireless charging technology with 20W output. At least, we can expect the Redmi’s Snapdragon 855-powered smartphone to come with wired fast charging. On the company might offer a triple rear camera.
The newly launched Redmi Note 7 Pro offered dual camera setup featuring 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor in the budget segment. The Redmi Note 7 Pro sports a 6.3-inch waterdrop notch display with Full HD+ (2340 ×1080 pixels) display and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by the 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform coupled with Kryo 460 CPU and Adreno 612 GPU. The device also comes with P2i nano-coating technology which makes it splash-proof.
For selfies, there is a 13MP camera placed on the front. Just like the current Redmi smartphones, the upcoming flagship smartphone might also come with the IPS display and plastic body to keep the price low. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
