We’ve been talking about the Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 SoC to be used by OEMs in their flagship devices. Now it is confirmed that the Redmi will also bring a smartphone which will be powered by Snapdragon 855.
Today, Redmi president Lu Weibing on his Weibo account shared this information that a Redmi will also have 855. However, he did not mention any other details regarding the handset. So we can’t comment on this right now. See the screenshot of his post below.
Redmi Note 7 is coming to India on February 28, while the company recently teases its successor the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The Pro will be launched in China first. Maybe we can see the Redmi phone featuring the Snapdragon 855 arriving in Q2-Q3 2019.
Let’s wait and see.
