Over the past few years, Xiaomi has been successful due to the release of some outstanding smartphones, especially in the budget and mid-market segment. Looking back on the year that has just passed, we have landmark offers from a Chinese phone manufacturer, including Redmi Note 5 Pro (review), Mi A2 (review), Mi 8 series and, of course, POCO F1 (review). With the approach of 2018, let's see what Xiaomi expects next year.
Not so long ago, Xaiomi made a completely new proposal to challenge those who carried the title of "flagship killer." It was in the form of a new subsidiary called POCO, and the subsequent smartphone was called POCO F1 (or POCOFONE, depending on which market you are in). Most recently, the Chinese brand introduced a version of the phone with 6 GB of RAM, so it seems that we have already started to learn about the successor in the work.
Despite this, we hope that the POCO F2 will be able to achieve the same success as its older brother. At the time of this writing, we have leaks pointing to a phone with a Snapdragon 845, which is running Android 9.0 Pie with a MIUI 10 skin on top. This phone also has 6 GB of RAM. We hope that the actual POCO F2 will not be just a software and RAM update, and that it will surprise us just like its predecessor when it came out.
Redmi 7 pro
Another smartphone that seems to get 6 GB of RAM for its next iteration is the Redmi 7 Pro. This phone is scheduled to be released next year, and it will become one of many future Xiaomi phones equipped with a waterjet. Leaks say it will be a 5.84-inch full HD + LCD. The phone is reported to work on an eight-core processor with a clock speed of up to 2.3 GHz. In addition, it comes in storage configurations of 4 GB + 32 GB, 4 GB + 64 GB and 6 GB + 128 GB. It is possible to expand the memory up to 256 GB using a microSD card.
It is expected that the rear camera on this phone will consist of a 12-megapixel main camera. It is not yet known what the size of the secondary camera will be. However, it is known that the camera for selfie has an 8 megapixel camera. Leaks suggest the phone will offer a variety of color options, including black, white, blue, purple, pink, gold, yellow, pink, green, gold, silver, gray.
After the tremendous success of Mi 8, the question arose: what can Xiaomi do to surprise users with its next iteration? Answer: a triple rear-view camera, where the main sensor measures 48MP.
Yes, the massive Sony IMX 586 48-megapixel sensor (0.8 microns) is expected to conduct a primary survey on the upcoming Mi 9, which will be accompanied by a 13 megapixel wide-angle lens and a 16 megapixel depth sensor.
The rest of the features are a bit of a bump in the dark, but we shouldn’t be wrong expecting the absolute best from Xiaomi. Thus, we look forward to the Snapdragon 855, which will run the show, in combination with from 6 to 10 GB of RAM. This phone can even support 5G networks and is expected to support Quick Charge 5.0.
Redmi pro 2
There are some sources who believe that the fake 48-megapixel sensor may belong to the successor of the smartphone Xiaomi, which was released in 2016. If so, then we could look at the smartphone, which a Chinese company can call Redmi. Pro 2. Turning on such a big camera in Redmi Pro 2 would make sense, since Redmi Pro was the first Xiaomi phone that had a dual camera installed.
Chatting on the Internet also suggests that the Snapdragon 675 SoC will power the device. In addition, it can be one of the first middle-class smartphones in which there is a hole for the selfie camera.
A more significant leak found on the Internet relates to the first Xiaomi smartphone on Android Go Edition. Successfully referred to as Redmi Go, this new phone will offer only 1 GB of RAM. It is reported that it will work in the light version (GO Edition) Android 9.0 Pie, offer support for two SIM-cards and have connectivity options such as Bluetooth 4.2 and 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi. The screen on this phone will probably measure under 6 inches.
