Redmi phone with pop-up camera teased again, may come with Snapdragon 855 chip

first_imgIf you wish for it enough, you might just get what you want. For many weeks now, there have been rumours that Xiaomi is working on a Redmi phone with a pop-up selfie camera. A leaked image did the rounds earlier this month of a Redmi Pro 2 with a pop-up camera, which was quickly debunked and labeled fake. This week, yet another image has surfaced, which seems to show a glimpse of an unannounced Xiaomi phone with a pop-up camera.The leaked image, which has now been deleted, is actually a photo sample shot on the Mi 9 SE. The sample focuses on some bottles, but some keen-eyed observes notice a phone in the background with a visible camera cutout on the top left corner of the frame. This could very well be the Redmi phone that many have been expecting, but there is no way to confirm this as of now. We can also see a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top of the frame. With a pop-up selfie camera, the mysterious Redmi phone will likely sport a full-screen bezel-less and notch-less display. Rumours say this Redmi phone could launch later this month, but the company is yet to start teasing its launch. So far, Xiaomi has only confirmed the launch of a new Redmi Y-series phone, possibly called Redmi Y3, in India on April 24.Whether the leaked phone is called Redmi Pro 2 or something else altogether, it seems this is the phone that will get a flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset. Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing had said earlier this month that the company will launch a Snapdragon 855-powered Redmi phone. Xiaomi has never launched a Redmi phone with flagship specs, considering the Redmi brand has always been about offering affordable smartphones.advertisementIt will be interesting to see where Xiaomi will place the Snapdragon 855-powered Redmi phone since the company already has a Poco sub-brand to offer affordable flagship phones, while the high-end segment sees Xiaomi’s own Mi flagship phones.ALSO READ | Xiaomi Redmi Y3 listed on Amazon India, tipped to sport Redmi Note 7-like designlast_img
