In December 2018, Xiaomi President Lin Bin had confirmed that the company will be releasing a new smartphone with 48-megapixel camera in January 2019.
The rumor mill has been speculating that it won’t be a Mi-series phone, but a new flagship phone under the Redmi brand name. Yesterday, through the Xiaomi Company Weibo account, the Chinese manufacturer confirmed that it will be announcing something new today. Today at 10 AM, the company confirmed that it will be holding a media event on Jan. 10 to announce a new Redmi phone.
The shadow below the large-sized Redmi word clearly hints that the company will be unleashing a 48-megapixel camera enabled Redmi smartphone on Jan. 10. The event will be held at 2 PM (local time) on the said date in Beijing, China. The teaser image has no other details on the specifications of the upcoming 48-megapixel Redmi camera phone.
