Debunked: Redmi's next phone won't be called Redmi X

Ivan, 02 May 2019

Yesterday a teaser poster surfaced, seemingly confirming that Redmi's next phone will be called the Redmi X. Well, it won't be.

Redmi GM Lu Weibing has gone on record on Weibo to say that Redmi X isn't the name of the phone and that Redmi will have a better name for it.

This spares us tech journos and the general public from further confusion between Xiaomi's Redmi and Oppo's Realme. The latter looks certain to release a device called Realme X.

Back to Redmi. Xiaomi's sub-brand is expected to drop a Snapdragon 855-powered device later this year with a triple camera and pop-up selfie camera. But it's expected that Redmi will first release a Snapdragon 730-powered phone.

I didnt buy me a xiaomi for the reason it have some design elements that look similar. I bought for the main point that it had good hardware with good big 4000mAh battery and low under 200 euro price. For me iphone isnt practical. And not really good...

nobody cares if it looks like the iphone, they are making more sales than apple. look at the decline in shipments for q1 for their iphones. huawei is slaughtering them.

I wonder if this will support wireless charging.
