This particular information comes from Tang Mu, general manager of Xiaomi Smart Hardware division. He also teases another device which will be unveiled alongside Redmi flagship. Going by his position, this unknown device could be an IoT product rather than a smartphone. On the other hand, it could also be a lite version of the same phone as Xiaomi’s Mi lite series.

According to previous leaks, the phone will feature a 6.3-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with under display fingerprint sensor, a 48MP primary rear camera, a 4,000 mAH battery with support for 27W fast charging, headphone jack, and NFC.

Anyways, we recommend you to take this information with a pinch of salt. The exact specifications of the Redmi flagship will be known on May 13 when it might be unveiled in China. KNow all the details of Redmi SD855 here.
