Xiaomi Redmi X teased on Weibo

While India is gearing up for the arrival of the Redmi Note 7, a new handset from Xiaomi’s latest brand has hit the rumour mill. As per a teaser poster that’s been leaked online, the Redmi X will be launched on February 15 and it will come with a OnePlus 6T feature — an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The poster that has been acquired by PlayfulDroid suggests that the Redmi X will be a budget-friendly smartphone that sports an in-display fingerprint scanner. The report states that the poster hasn’t been released by Xiaomi’s Redmi and it is advisable to take this information with a healthy dose of salt. The website also states that as of now, there is no official confirmation on the same and there is no word if this handset even exists. But for what its worth, if any brand has to introduce cutting-edge features in an affordable package, then Xiaomi is the one to do so. However, if Xiaomi does launch the Redmi X, it is expected to feature some powerful hardware such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC.

While we wait to see if the Redmi X is a reality or not, the brand is preparing to launch the Note 7 in India. In a rather unique tweet, Managing Director Manu Jain has tweeted an image of himself with CEO Lei Jun with the Redmi Note 7 in their hands and states that Xiaomi’s going to turn the industry upside down as an amazing 48MP is coming.

Earlier this month, Xiaomi spun off Redmi into its own brand and the Redmi 7 is the first handset to be launched under it. The latest offering boasts some incredible specifications such as a 48MP camera with a Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor, a large screen, a powerful battery, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.

The Redmi Note 7 comes packing a 6.3-inch LCD display with a waterdrop notch that plays home to the selfie camera with Gorilla Glass on top. The handset sports a Full HD+ display with an 84 per cent screen-to-body ratio. The Note 7 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor that’s clocked at 2.2GHz. The handset comes in three configurations — 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB and 6GB/64GB along with support for a microSD card.

The main camera is clearly the biggest selling point of the new phone. Its native resolution is 48 MP, but due to its Quad-Bayer filter, it's better used for outputting 12 MP images with large 1.6 μm pixels and real-time HDR. There is a secondary 5 MP shooter for AI purposes and Portrait Mode. The selfie snapper, tucked in the notch, is 13 MP.

Xiaomi has used a 4000mAh battery in the Note 7 and it supports Qualcomm’s fast charge technology. The handset comes with a USB Type-C port with a 5V/2A charger but it can be upgraded with a fast charging adaptor which will enable 9V/2A charging that will juice up the battery from 0 to 100 per cent in 1 hour 43 minutes.
