A Redmi executive may have leaked a new phone by going on social media with it
The Redmi Note 7 was a wildly popular phone on its launch, not least because it helped solidfy its brand's new identity as a sub-OEM, as opposed to a mere a Xiaomi product name. Now, it appears that it will get a successor in the near future. There may also now be clues that this "Note 8" will do better than the average second album already.
A tech blog has re-posted what it claims as a Weibo post from Lu Weibing, Redmi's general manager. It appears to have been sent from a Note8Android, in any case. Lu uses this post to make rather mysterious references to "a clearer photo" and a "longer screen", leading to speculation that he is talking about the Note 8.
Should this be the case, it appears that we may be able to expect better cameras in this next-gen Redmi Note, as well as a display with perhaps more of a screen-to-body ratio (or, perhaps, even a 21:9 aspect-ratio?). It also seems more plausible now that the 64MP camera that Redmi has also been teasing may debut in the Note 8.
