After the announcement of the 64MP sensor by Xiaomi, there have been speculations about an upcoming Redmi smartphone to use this sensor. Yesterday, a new Redmi device appeared on TENAA. This smartphone with model number M1908C3IC uses a waterdrop display and a dual rear camera. It also has a Redmi logo on both sides as well as a rear fingerprint sensor. Now, we have the first real image of this smartphone which is believed to be the Redmi 8A.
Like the TENAA image, we have the dual rear camera, LED flash and rear fingerprint sensor in a vertical alignment. These sensors are in the middle of the device in contrast to Redmi’s usual left alignment. There is also the Redmi logo in front and rear just as the TENAA image.
From this mage, we now know that we will have a dark red version of the Redmi 8A. However, this smartphone could also be Redmi 8. From the available images, this smartphone comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (there will be other versions). Under the hood, we have a Snapdragon 439 SoC as well as a 5000 mAh battery. This dual-rear camera phone could still use the 64MP camera sensor but there is no confirmation.
From earlier reports, Redmi’s smartphone with the 64MP will also come with a waterdrop display. However, it will have the new MediaTek Helio G90T processor under its hood. Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group and general manager of Redmi brand, revealed that the 64MP smartphone from Redmi went into mass-production half a month ago. He also assured everyone that there will be enough stocking of this smartphone.
