A live video showcasing what is said to be the upcoming Redmi flagship has surfaced. The device has been touted to be powered by a Snapdragon 855, and the video shows it sporting a triple rear camera setup, and a terribly distasteful camera punch-hole in its display.

Xiaomi's sub-brand, Redmi, is on a roll. The brand was launched back in January and has already released a number of devices since then, with the Note 7 and Note 7 Pro being the biggest hitters—selling over four million units in under three months. The company is set to release its first flagship phone, and a live video showcasing it has surfaced.

The device is currently unnamed but is said to feature a Snapdragon 855. Going by the video, it sports three vertically-stacked rear cameras. There's also a traditional fingerprint reader at the back, which assures us that it's an IPS display. 

The device's display is rather interesting. It sports a punch-hole, like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Honor View 20. Unlike those two devices, though, the Redmi flagship has the punch-hole bang right in the middle of the display. We're not even sure what the rationale behind that is, as it takes up more space than just about any display cutout design. A regular teardrop notch would have been better.

The device appears to be running on something close to AOSP, going by the app icons on display. That could mean we're still a few months away from launch, as it takes some time to prepare things on the software end.

We'll be sure to keep you updated.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
