The tweet reads “An all-new Redmi with a new 48MP Super camera is coming,”. However, the exact launch date of the handset is still unknown. Last month, Xiaomi’s Global VP and MD for Xiaomi India Manu Kumar Jain revealed that a new Snapdragon 700-powered phone will be unveiled soon. So, it could be the same device from the Redmi S series that he was hinted.
Talking about the expected pricing, the upcoming Redmi S series device with 48-megapixels camera is expected to be priced between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000. Considering the price, it won’t be wrong to say that the handset will likely take on the likes of the Realme 3 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy M30 and other phones in same price segment in India.
A recent teaser had also revealed a triple-camera phone might soon make its debut in India and it could be the same Redmi’s new S series device, that will be launched in coming days. As per the rumors, the upcoming Redmi S series phone might feature 48-megapixel rear camera similar to that on the Redmi Note 7 Pro. It is expected to be fuelled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 or Snapdragon 730G chipset under the hood.
