Xiaomi kickoff the year with the announcement of spinning off Redmi as a separate brand. So far in the first four months, Redmi launched a number of mid-range phones and an Android Go phone. Back in December the company GM Lu Weibing confirmed the arrival of flagship phone running on the Snapdragon 855 chipset.
In the last few months or so the company launched a number of teasers to confirm details regarding the Redmi's upcoming flagship. Back on April 8th, Weibing confirmed the flagship phone won't have pop-up selfie snapper. However, the recently leaked posters suggest the upcoming Redmi flagship will be dubbed as Redmi X and it will have pop-up selfie snapper.
Last night Redmi GM once again took the Weibo to confirm the upcoming flagship won't be dubbed as Redmi X. He also said the device will have a better name.
