Yesterday, Redmi general manager and Xiaomi’s VP, Lu Weibing, was spotted at a cinema holding a new (probably unreleased) smartphone. The image quickly sparked speculation that this could be the upcoming Redmi Snapdragon 855 smartphone. The phone is a full-screen device with ultra-thin side bezels. This full-screen design is much better than its most recent Redmi Note 7 Pro. It is notchless and does not use a waterdrop screen design.
A few days ago, Lu Weibing announced that the Redmi Snapdragon 855 smartphone will come with a very narrow chin. Wang Xiaobo, the product director of Xiaomi has previously confirmed that the Redmi SD855 phone does not use a notch or a waterdrop design. He also confirmed that it will retain the 3.5 mm headphone jack. In addition to the Snapdragon 855, this smartphone is also expected to have NFC function. Furthermore, Lu Weibing revealed that the Redmi Snapdragon 855 phone has a higher screen ratio, more lasting battery life, and a more shocking price.
Since Redmi announced that it will have a Snapdragon 855 smartphone, the company has been very conservative with information about this smartphone. Recently, the product director of Xiaomi, Wang Teng, exposed a real image of this smartphone. The image was swiftly deleted but netizens already have screenshots. Some time ago, there was a leak that this smartphone will use a pop-up camera setup. Although Redmi denied the popular leak it will not be surprising if this smartphone uses a pop-up camera.
