Redmi recently released a dramatic teaser for its upcoming flagship with a pop-up selfie camera on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo. The phone will be Redmi’s first flagship since it became independent.
While initial rumors suggested the phone might be called Redmi X or Redmi Pro nobody knows why and how, but the name ‘Redmi X’ was given to the phone despite Redmi calling it ‘flagship phone’ in the teasers.
The name can be traced back to a teaser poster that surfaced a few days back. The poster features a smartphone with pop up selfie camera, triple sensor rear camera, and a metallic body. It has ‘Redmi X’ written on the top.
This name has stirred a huge confusion since Realme is going to release phones named ‘Realme X’ and ‘Realme X Pro’. People are confusing Xiaomi’s Redmi and Oppo’s Realme due to the similarity between the two. Some have even questioned Oppo’s decision of naming a sub-brand that sounds much like Xiaomi’s Redmi.
Hence, Redmi’s general manager took the situation into his own hands and announced on Weibo that their long-awaited flagship will not be called Redmi X, rather they have a better name for it.
This has shut off all the confusion. The phone is expected to feature Snapdragon 855 paired with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB built-in storage. The phone is slated to come with a 6.39-inch display with 48 MP + 8 MP + 13 MP rear cameras and a 32 MP pop up selfie snapper.
