Just a few days back, Xiaomi announced that ‘Redmi’ is now an independent brand which means we will now see Redmi smartphones without ‘Xiaomi or Mi’ branding. This is the same thing as Huawei and Honor. So, Redmi brand will focus on the budget and mid-range phones while the Xiaomi or Mi brand on the high-end mid-rangers or the premium phones.
On January 10, the first phone from Redmi will launch in China, and one thing that’s confirmed already is that there is a 48MP camera on the back. Today, a durability video of this device was posted on the official Weibo page of Redmi that gave a glimpse at the design.
So, as the video shows, this upcoming Redmi smartphone has a waterdrop notch and a big chin on the bottom. So, this is the first phone under the Redmi brand with a waterdrop notch. FYI, the first Xiaomi device with a waterdrop notch is the Mi Play. On the rear, there are dual cameras where the primary camera has a 48MP sensor, and the secondary is most probably a depth sensor.
