We’ve been hearing about new Xiaomi phones for quite some time and the rumors are finally becoming a reality. The company is releasing the Redmi 7 series on January 10 with a 48 MP camera.
The teaser appeared both on the official website of Xiaomi and on the Redmi account on Weibo. It also says “new independent brand”, meaning Redmi is taking the Honor and Realme way and becoming a brand of its own, while still sharing most of the R&D facilities and manufacturing plants as the mother company.
We can see the shadow of the “Redmi” sign says 4800, which is clearly a nod towards the 48 MP teaser from last month. The event is taking place in Beijing and will start at 14:00 local time. We expect to see at least one device called Xiaomi Redmi 7, but there might be more iterations, like Redmi 7 Pro, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi 7A and other typical moniker combos.
If the phone is indeed coming with a 48 MP sensor, there might be a possibility to see Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2, a new iteration of the dual-cam Redmi Pro that arrived in the summer of 2016. It was one of the first devices to introduce real-time bokeh mode, along with “quite good” primary snapper.
