That dual camera Redmi is set to have 10 core chip and 4GB RAM


The Redmi range of phones is coming to age with already great specs and pricing, but a new model is set to rival even Xiaomi’s most expensive devices.

A device leaked earlier on in the week has been labelled a flagship Xiaomi Redmi by commenters who had been impressed by the appearance of a new brushed metal body and dual camera design, now specs reveal that the phone is a true flagship killer in the making too.

Partial TENAA documents released today reveal that the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi will also benefit from is 10 core chipset (likely from Mediatek), 4GB RAM and a whopping 128GB internal memory. Chances are the new phone wil be powered by the slightly more powerful Helio X25 chipset first seen in the Meizu Pro 6.


The details don’t mention anything about the phones dual camera design or where the fingerprint scanner on the device might be located, but it has also been revealed that the phone will have an Android 6.0 OS and fast 5V/2A charging.

    How these guys make profit with such low prices?

    I’m still not totally sure that’s a dual camera rather than a single camera and the hole for a fingerprint scanner, just like it was with the “leaked” pics of umi super… Let’s wait and see, either way it won’t be a good camera, so that’s not a big deal actually… Just hoping they didn’t went backwards with the battery, in fact more would be nice!

      I agree with everything except the “it won’t be a good camera”. It depends how we are classifying “good”. If we are comparing it to $700 Galaxy and G5 it probably won’t be good. But if we are comparing it to other under $200 phones it certainly can be good.

        Yep, I phrased it badly: I should have wrote “it won’t be excellent”, as lately the market is starting to push around the belief that it just needs 2 cameras to make pics at lg’s level (just like they’ve been doing throughout the past years with the mpxs war)… To be honest, I have seen pics from redmi note 3 pro which were below average, and that was a sw issue (purposefully wanted, imho), but don’t know how things are right now

    That’s a bad photo shop on the fingerprint sensor there.

    x30 maybe or is that too early?

      Too early that’s not even supposed to go into production until later this year.

      X30 is about a year away.
      TSMC will start shipping 10nm products in Q1 2017 so all in all it’s mid year at best for X30 products. Could be a couple of months sooner or later but mid year is the safer bet.

        alright ill wait, will the “830” be around the same time as well?

          First , just to be precise ,we know TSMC’s schedule but not enough recent details on Mediatek’s schedule. In a couple of weeks Mediatek should report Q2 results and might provide some updates.
          As for Qualcomm, we know nothing at all about their future product but they are on a 1 year cadence with a mid year stop-gap update (SD821) so SD830 or w/e will be called should show up about 1 year after SD820. Not quite sure if they’ll use TSMC or Samsung as a foundry on 10nm.
          Ofc Samsung will have their own SoC too and Huawei is likely to go 10nm but they might also have A73 on 16FF this year.
