On Weibo, the Chinese microblogging website, Redmi the flagship of Xiaomi, confirmed that a device with elevating selfie camera is arriving early. A video was posted which made the spy shots look real with the launch of elevating selfie shooter. Redmi also announced a special partnership with Avengers Endgame movie with a high probability of bringing in a special version like the Oppo F11 Pro. But the clash is bound to happen and with the partnership announcement, let us wait for the right time and see how it all shapes up.
Elevating Selfie Camera from Redmi
In the video, price-friendly brand Redmi has let out a teaser of its latest gadget. It shows the elevating camera which looks to rise up and go down automatically. In other words, a mechanical pop-up camera has been teased to its fans. There is no doubt that phones with pop-up selfie cameras look appealing but if we go by the past experiences with pop-up cameras, it has its own share of challenges. The biggest issue is the consumption of more power and being less durable. Though it has its own advantages of increasing the screen area without resorting to a notch. But it is expected that Xiaomi would have attended and fixed these known issues.
The video didn’t explicitly confirm the specifications. But Redmi flagship smartphone is set to arrive with Snapdragon 855 SoC chipset. This, in turn, means a high-end performance affordable in a budget phone. Have you heard somewhat similar before? Does it not sound like you are reading Poco F2 for which the teasers are similar. Pocophone F2 is also a heady concoction of the cost-effective budget phone which is performance oriented! But this video is not about Poco F2 launch news. Looking at the specs, there are high chances that Pocophone F2 might be based on the Redmi superphone.

If we go by the rumors then the latest Redmi flagship launch should be Redmi Pro 2. It is rumored that timeline of launch should be in mid of May somewhere around the launch of OnePlus 7. In addition to the confirmation on the pop-up selfie camera, other specifications leaked out on Slashleaks reveal that Redmi Pro 2 should feature a screen resolution of 6.39″ with Full HD paired with 8 GB RAM, 128 GB of internal storage.
