    Redmi reportedly working on two new smartphones

Redmi is busying itself with a number of launches this year. It has already launched a number of new phones this year with impressive hardware under the hood. However, new information shared by a Chinese tipster reveals that the brand could be working on two new phones. They could be power on a Snapdragon 8-series chip and Dimensity 1100 SoC. Moreover, the two phones will apparently be different from the Redmi K50 series.

Redmi reportedly working on two new smartphones

According to a post on Chinese social media platform Weibo by user Bald Panda, the company will launch two premium phones. The leak suggests the Snapdragon 8-series SoC phone will be feature-rich. In addition, it will flaunt a 120Hz OLED panel and a big battery that will be 5000mAh in capacity. This phone is also tipped to bring with itself a powerful camera set-up with a telephoto lens and support for up to 3x optical zoom, and 30x zoom.

Whereas, the other Redmi phone with the Dimensity 1100 chipset will also offer powerful hardware. It will also be including a 120Hz display, a camera set-up with a 64-megapixel lens, and the same 5,000mAh battery found on the other device. However, on this one, the battery will support 67W fast charging. For now, there is little else known about these Redmi phones.

Meanwhile, in the same post, it mentions that the Xiaomi subsidiary is lining up launches with a number of new technologies. This would include features such as 100W charging, curved displays, and under-display cameras. The post’s direct translation from Chinese states “under-screen technology”, which could also mean under-display fingerprint sensors. However, that would not exactly be ‘new’ technology per se, so the tip most likely hints at under-screen cameras only. As a result, it remains to be seen if Redmi does indeed launch such devices by next year.
