Alleged Redmi 8D855 phone with pop-up selfie camera and 3.5mm audio jack officially teased again – gizmochina

In February, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing had confirmed that the company will be launching a Snapdragon 855 mobile platform driven flagship phone. It is expected to be one of the cheapest phones powered by the Snapdragon 855. Some rumors have even claimed that the phone may debut as Poco F2 outside of China. Last month, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun was spotted with the alleged Redmi SD855 smartphone. Today, Xiaomi’s Product Director, Wang Teng Thomas has an image which shows the same phone with Xiaomi co-founder and President, Lin Bin.

The new Weibo post that had shown the mysterious and unreleased Redmi phone placed on the table has been deleted. The image had revealed that the phone is equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack on its top which also seems to be housing a module with pop-up selfie camera. Hence, the smartphone could be equipped with a notch-less display. Earlier today, Lu Weibing had confirmed that the company’s flagship will indeed arrive with a 3.5mm audio jack.

The Chinese firm has been teasing the phone, but the identity of the phone is still under the wraps. Even the rumor mill is believing that it could be the Redmi’s Snapdragon 855 powered phone, it could also be some other Xiaomi/Redmi smartphone. As mentioned above, the Redmi SD855 phone is expected to deliver topnotch performance at affordable price.

Some rumors are claiming that the phone may go official in the coming month. There is no information available on the specifications of the smartphone. The new image that has surfaced today does not match with the purported Redmi phone with triple rear cameras, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and punch-hole display that was recently seen in a leaked video. This indicates that these two devices are different smartphones.

Redmi has couple of other phones waiting in pipeline to get official. The Redmi S3 selfie centric phone is expected to go official in May in China. The same smartphone may release in some other markets including India as Redmi Y3. The company is also expected to announce other Redmi 7 series phones such as Redmi 7 Pro and Redmi 7A.
