That’s all the information we can divulge right now. However, going by the previous leaks and rumours, the Redmi device (exact name not known at the moment) is expected to have an edge-to-edge display with no notch or bezel whatsoever. For photography, the device will reportedly pack a 48-megapixel sensor paired with a second depth sensor for portrait shots and perhaps even an ultra-wide angle lens. Lastly, the phone would likely have a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.

The launch of the premium smartphone from Redmi is expected over the coming months, though nothing official has been announced yet. We expect to learn more details as we inch closer to the launch event. Separately, the company is all set to the launch Redmi Y3 smartphone – the third installment of its selfie-centric series – on April 24th.
