Xiaomi Teases 48MP Smartphone With Another New Image, Launch Scheduled for January 10

Xiaomi branched out Redmi into a separate sub-brand of its own which will now focus on launching affordably priced smartphones. There have been rumours of many smartphones in the pipeline which are slated to be launched in the January 10th event going to be held in China. The major launch which is being planned by the company for this date is the Redmi smartphone with the 48MP rear camera. Previously, Xiaomi executives hinted towards the launch of this phone via different banners, and now another picture of the same phone has been released by the Global spokesperson, Director of Product Management, Donovan Sung.


The picture which has been posted by the Xiaomi executive is black and shows the design of the smartphone with sharp edges. The rear of the smartphone looks glassy in the picture. The picture shows a vertically oriented dual rear camera setup of a 48MP camera along with an LED flash. The speculations say that the phone might be the Redmi Pro 2, whereas some of the recent ones have asserted that this phone might be the Redmi X.

Device to Come in Many Colour Options

Xiaomi CEO has also shared pictures of this smartphone and has confirmed that like it was the case with Mi Play, this phone will also come in many colour options like pink, red, purple and others. The CEO has also reportedly confirmed that the phone would sport 2.5D glass on the rear side with gradient finish which will give impressive aesthetics to the device. On the back side, we also get to see the circular fingerprint sensor placed in the middle, and the lower rear side of the phone contains the Redmi branding. There is another good news for those who are awaiting this smartphone, the device will sport a USB Type-C port instead of a micro USB port.

Speculated Specifications and Features

The new Redmi phone which is slated to come with a 48MP camera has been teased a lot. There have been many leaks and renders of the device, and some prime specifications have been hinted by the company executives as well. The launch is scheduled to happen on January 10th, where the brand is also expected to launch the Redmi 7 and probably the Redmi Note 7 too. According to the details leaked online about the new 48 MP smartphone, the device will support AI camera features, will boot MIUI 10 on top of Android 9 Pie alongside sporting 6.3-inch full HD+ display with a waterdrop style notch.

Oppo sub brand realme, Asus and Honor doing well in previous year . Xiaomi nothing doing much for their redmi series. Redmi note series also not attracting customers.
There is nothing in their successor series. Dew drop notch by realmi, gorilla glass 6 by Asus, innovative and attractive AI camera phones by honor, these brands are grabbing market share of xiaomi day by day and I’ll not surprise if xiaomi loose its market share like Nokia in coming months. Xiaomi should know that price cut will not attract much customers unless they have great specifications.

Both Realme 1 and Realme 2 Pro didnt sold that well despite of being good value to price ratio. Only reason is color OS. Apart from that its fine. They should have kept prices of Realme 2 Pro a bit aggressive. There is no place for 6GB+64GB model in India. Either launch 4/64 or 6/128. I hope everyone understands this sooner. Eagerly waiting to see Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro 4/64 under 17000 with snapdragon 675/710.

Never bro, you are waiting for redmi note 7 pro with better chipset.
Mark my words, xiaomi will offer same (slightly better than 636)chipset in their upcoming redmi note 7 Pro and redmi note 8 Pro like Rmn 5 pro & Rmn6 Pro. (sd 636). Nothing upgrade, only notch and that also wide notch. New brands offering dew drop notch under 10 K and xiaomi selling same dish by different name.

Agree to Nikhil, rest of brand trying something new with an effective price but xiaomi only make phones with old configs. Xiaomi should learn from Asus & Honor.

Honor and Huawei tries to compete with Samsung in this segment. They think that they are premium brand. But it’s not. Honor launched great phone last year in the form Id Honor View 10 and Honor 7X but they were short of One Plus 5T/One Plus 6 and Redmi Note 5 Pro/Redmi Note 4. They have overpriced their phones by 25% in my honest opinion. If they reduce their prices than they will be lot successful tha Xiaomi. They can use snapdragon chipsets under 20000 categories.

If you flash the Rom,it’s better than Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. Also they took too much time for launching 6GB variant.

Asus product was far from perfect. Now it has got updated so much times and reduced battery drain at idle times. That’s why they were not successful. On the other hand, Xiaomi released phone in Nougat and updated it to Oreo. Even after having stock android Asus team is not able to update it to Android P. Not even their flagship Zenfone 5Z was unable to give updates despite of being good phone. Also all three phones have different camera setups. No band 41 support is also the reason behind not selling that well.
