XDA have found remnants of a new flagship smartphone from Xiaomi that is headed for a global release and particularly Indian release. This isn’t the Mi 8 as the mysterious handset has been found to have a codename “Berillyium”. The findings come courtesy of firmware files that the XDA examined and scanned in March this year. Hence, the publication also states that they cannot verify that the same specs found earlier will also be there when the handset launches. However, the phone still is in development, since an up-to-date MIUI 10 Global Beta (v8.7.6) exists for the device.

Having said that, below are the rumoured specifications that XDA thinks will be on the device codenamed “Berillyium”.

Rumoured Specifications: “Beryllium”
CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 630 GPU
Display LCD with a notch. 18:9 aspect ratio.
Storage No SD card slot
Battery 4,000 mAh battery
Software Android 8.1 Oreo
Fingerprint Yes, but not in-display
Camera Dual cameras. Optical zoom support.
NFC Yes

berillyiumAs for evidence of its launch in India, XDA found a few pointers in the camera app. In particular, a method called “isIndiaBeautyFilter”. As for the real identity of the device, it is believed to be a new flagship from the “POCOPHONE” trademarked by Xiaomi. The first phone from the new sub-brand appeared on the FCC recently. (via SlashLeaks).
For now, this is all unofficial and there are no launch dates or even hints of a release of such a flagship from Xiaomi.

      Joking man, the best phone at the moment and if you could find sometimes just a bit over 100£ with a coupon is redmi note 5.

      What don’t you like about it? Not a fan of the notch, but depending on price this could be a great option. Sd 845 and 4000mah battery is a great combo

      it’s available in Pakistan for around 200£ …

      Yeah, the design pic isn’t the most flattering. I’ll wait to see actual production photos. I was trying to figure out what you didn’t like about the specs 😂 Good to see you back.

      That’s too much, you add another 50 and you get the Mi8 710 snapdragon.
