Xiaomi and Redmi fans long for the arrival of the first top-of-the-range sub. Redmi, which was known for Xiaomi’s mid-range smartphones, has broken away from the brand to focus on specific markets and this brings us advantages.
One is to have an “independent” brand that will look at itself. A brand that will compete directly with Xiaomi even being part of the same company. The same we see, for example, in Huawei and Honor.
Redmi’s first onslaught with Redmi Note 7 was a very successful move. However, fans want to see the top of the range and the brand already starts talking about it. Even today we had a video that shows us the mobile phone with Pop-up camera for the first time.
Xiaomi’s problem is always the same. Lack of stock!
However, it seems that this time there will be no problems. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has assured in his Weibo account that there will be no shortage of top-tier Redmi stock.
This is one of the problems that has been plaguing Xiaomi and all its top of the range. Building a smartphone with a higher price has to be very heavy and measured. If they do the more they can end up with unsold stock and if they do the less they lose the enthusiasm of the fans.
What we already know of the top-of-the-range Xiaomi Redmi
In a simple way we know that the top of the range Redmi should compromise on something. However, it is believed that Xiaomi is preparing to surprise even so. It is not easy to make a top of the range with a price of around € 400 and that’s what you expect. So far we have some suspicions about what to expect.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Processor
- 6GB and 8GB of RAM
- 128GB internal memory
- Pop-up front camera
- 3 rear cameras of 48MP + 13MP + 8MP
- Acrylic construction
- AMOLED screen
- Biometric sensor on the screen
- Price to be around € 380 and € 400
As for its availability, if the CEO of Xiaomi guaranteed stock for all brand lovers should not be too troublesome. Still we have to be aware that it will take a few weeks before it can be bought on websites from China.
