Redmi is slated to launch its first dedicated Android gaming phone soon. It is already confirmed to debut with the new MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor; now, it is also tipped to do so with a high-end flat AMOLED screen. The device may also have fast 65W charging, as well as shoulder buttons like those of the RedMagic or Black Shark lines.

Xiaomi's popular sub-brand Redmi has already confirmed that it will release its first phone specifically aimed at mobile gamers in 2021. Now, the eminent leaker Digital Chat Station is quoted as saying that this device will launch with a flat display - one made with the same Samsung E4 AMOLED panel found in the Mi 11 flagship, moreover.

The Redmi gaming phone is also now said to combine the on-trend screen type with shoulder buttons; however, whether they are to be capacitive, as in the RedMagic 6/6 Pro, or physical as in the Black Shark 4/4 Pro is less than clear at this point.

Their new potential rival in this space may also launch with a 5000mAh battery that charges at up to 65W. Therefore, Redmi could hype it as a device that can power back up to 100% in about 30 minutes.

The imminent gaming phone is set to run on the Dimensity 1200 SoC, rather than something like the Black Shark 4 series' Snapdragon 888. Therefore, while the looming Redmi alternative may be at least somewhat premium itself, it is also more likely to fall into a mid-range price-bracket.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
