The highlight of the device as the poster probably is the in-display fingerprint scanner, which is a bit surprising considering that the Redmi brand is meant to cater to the budget segment of the market. While no other detail has been revealed, there are speculations the so-called Redmi X could come with Snapdragon 710.
We are not quite sure if the Redmi X is the final marketing name or just some sort of teaser, as there are speculations that the device might turn out to be the Redmi Note 7 Pro. We expect more details in form of teasers to surface in the days leading to February 15.
