We are still waiting for the official launch of the Redmi Snapdragon 855 smartphone and until its launch, we keep getting salient information in trickles. Today, Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group and general manager of Redmi brand, said that the Redmi flagship has made great improvements and optimizations in three major areas. He said that this smartphone is optimized for gaming, charging and frequency reduction.
Earlier today, he said that the AnTuTu score of the upcoming Redmi flagship is scary which sparked speculations that the device scores more than 400,000. In addition to the flagship performance, the Redmi flagship also uses a full-screen display and the front camera adopts a pop-up camera design. Although the screen size is currently unknown, it will have a resolution of 2340×1080. Recent reports suggest that this device will use an on-screen fingerprint sensor although Lu Weibing earlier said that the feature is expensive which sparked speculation that Redmi will likely ditch it.
Furthermore, this smartphone s expected to come with a Sony 48M sensor. In fact, there are reports that the camera department of this flagship will be identical to that of the Xiaomi Mi 9SE which uses a 48MP main camera + 8MP telephoto + 13MP wide-angle combination. With this smartphone optimized for gaming, gamers may want to watch out for its price.
