Lu Weibing, General Manager of Redmi has confirmed on his Weibo profile that the Redmi flagship won’t be called Redmi X. Unfortunately, the Redmi X poster leak is fake. Thus, confirming our suspicion. On further investigation, Beebom found that someone has slapped Vivo NEX’s pop-up selfie camera on a Xiaomi Mi 9.
Update (1/05/2019) Redmi X with pop-up selfie camera poster leaked
A leaked poster on Weibo gives us a fair idea on what to expect. And it doesn’t look like a flagship smartphone. This Redmi Smartphone being dubbed as Redmi X, but I’m not ready to call it by that name. While this leaked poster may have given us the first clear look of the upcoming phone. It leaves us hanging in the dry with no specs mention.
The important takeaway from this leaked poster is that there are three new features coming first time on a Redmi phone. First is a pop-up selfie camera, second is a triple rear camera, and third is a first bezel-less full front display. Further, the handset seems to sport a glass black.
I can get over the fact that this might be a Redmi flagship smartphone. But I can’t get over the fact that it uses Iron Man 3’s poster and not Endgame’s as the leaked teaser video originally showcased that. We would like you to take the above information with a pinch of salt.
What do you guys think of the leaked poster? Does this Redmi X smartphone look flagship phone to you? Let us know in the comment section below.
