Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing announced back in February 2019 that the company is working on a device with Snapdragon 855 processor, and ever since there have been a number of leaks and rumors. However, none of those rumors or leaks managed to detail most of the key specifications of the device. Now, courtesy of a tipster, an alleged list of the Redmi flagship smartphone has surfaced online. According to the listing, the smartphone will feature 8GB of RAM, 128GB of onboard storage, and a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The tipster took on Weibo to reveal that the Redmi flagship smartphone will feature a 6.39-inch full HD+ display with 1080×2340 resolution. It is said to come with a triple camera module compromising of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 8-megapixel secondary sensor, and a 13-megapixel sensor. It is not clear which of these sensors would be accompanied by an ultra-wide, wide-angle, or telephoto lens.
The tipster also notes that the phone will come with a 32-megapixel camera at the front. In terms of RAM and storage configuration, the smartphone will come with 8GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
