Last week, an alleged Redmi flagship phone powered by Snapdragon 855 chipset was spotted in a leaked video. The video showcased the phone from all angles. However, since it was not very clear, the video could not confirm the presence of a 3.5mm audio jack. Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has confirmed to Redmi fans through a recent Weibo post that the Redmi SD855 flagship phone will be equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack.
On Weibo, a Redmi fan had asked Lu Weibing whether the upcoming Redmi phone fueled by Snapdragon 855 mobile platform will retain a headphone jack. The Redmi executive did not shy away from revealing the presence of the feature. He did not share any other information on the smartphone.
The alleged Redmi flagship phone was recently spotted in the same frame with Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun. While the display design of the smartphone wasn’t clearly visible, it revealed the presence of a big hole on its top/bottom edge. It indicated that the phone will be arriving with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Also, the leaked video that had surfaced recently revealed that the phone will come equipped with a triple camera setup and a fingerprint scanner on its rear. The front view of the phone suggested that it will deliver an impressive screen-to-body ratio since it was seen sporting a punch-hole screen with slim bezels around it. The display design was slightly unique since the hole was positioned on the top-center and not on the top-left or top-right of the screen.
Redmi is not really interested in sharing the details of its flagship phone at present. The reason behind it is that the company wants to focus on the sales of the already released smartphones such as Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi 7. The Chinese manufacturer is also getting ready to launch a selfie-focused smartphone with 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The 32-megapixel selfie camera phone from Redmi will be releasing in India as Redmi Y3. The same is likely to hit the Chinese markets with Redmi S3 moniker. The smartphone will be featuring 32-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL Bright S5KGD1 sensor. The phone is likely to get unveiled in the coming month.
