Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has shared official images of the upcoming 48-megapixel Redmi X camera phone on Weibo.
The official name of the phone is yet to be confirmed. However, the said handset has appeared on JD.com with Redmi X moniker. The images shared by Lei Jun boasts the color gradient design of the smartphone. It is the very same Xiaomi phone that has been recently approved by China’s TENAA telecom authority.
The smartphone will be coming in three color variants. There will be a Black model apart from Violet-Blue and Purple-Red color gradient options. It will be the first Redmi phone to arrive with a glass rear. Lei Jun has confirmed in a weibo post that the phone features 2.5D glass on front and rear sides. He has added the images shared by him are real images and not renders.
A protruding vertical dual camera setup is available on the top-left corner which includes 48-megapixel primary sensor. Below the dual camera setup is a dual-tone LED flash followed by “48 MP AI Dual Camera” words. A fingerprint scanner is also available on the backside of the phone. The “Redmi by Xiaomi” text is imprinted towards the lower edge of the back panel.
A pair of external speakers can be seen on the bottom edge of the device. However, due to lower resolution of the photos, it cannot be confirmed whether the handset features a USB-C port or a microUSB port. The 3C certification of the phone had revealed that it will carry support for 10W charging which indicates that it may not feature a USB-C port.
It has been revealed through TENAA that the alleged Redmi X measures 159.21 x 75.21 x 8.1 mm and it houses a 6.3-inch display which will carry support for full HD+ resolution. The handset is likely to feature a 4,000 mAh battery. The Redmi X can be expected to be officially announced on January 10.
