“The debut smartphone from the Redmi sub-brand will most likely be unveiled at an event on January 10th in China”
Three smartphones from Xiaomi’s Redmi series have paid a visit to Chinese certification site TENAA. They have made their appearance right before the January 10th event where the new Redmi smartphone is expected to be launched. As the recent reports suggested, the listing reveals that the handsets with model number M1901F7C, M1901F7E, and M1901F7T are going to be the first devices with Redmi branding instead of Mi.
While the actual name of the device hasn’t been stated, speculations are that they could be the 48-megapixel camera phone that is supposed to launch this year. The devices will alleged be called as the Redmi Pro 2 or Redmi 7 Pro. Worth noting that all the three models have the same design, dimensions, display size, and battery, which means they are likely to be the variants of Redmi’s upcoming smartphone.
Coming to the specifications, the listing mentions that the Android-powered Redmi handset could feature a 6.3-inch display with a waterdrop-style notch, just like the Xiaomi’s Mi Play smartphone. A 3,900mAh battery is said to fuel the device. As far as dimensions are concerned, the device may measure 159.21 x 75.21 x 8.1mm. The specs for cameras are vague, though we can see the dual-camera setup, and previous rumours have suggested that the phone will flaunt a high-res 48-megapixel shooter. As of now, there are just two devices — Huawei Nova 4 and Honor View 20 — that utilise the 48MP sensor for photography. For security, the handset comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Under the hood, the Redmi Pro 2 is rumoured to employ Qualcomm newest 11nm Snapdragon 675 chipset. It may be accompanied by up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage that can be further increased with the use of a microSD card. We’ll bring you more updates on the forthcoming budget powerhouse as and when we get them, so keep watching the space.
