Redmi, the sub-brand owned by Xiaomi is rumored to be adding three new phones to its Note 9 series. The tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo didn’t share the names of these phones but did share a key detail of at least one of these phones.
According to the tipster, one of these phones will feature the new 108MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor by Samsung that was launched mid-September. If this turns out to be true, this will be the first phone from Redmi with a 108MP sensor. Xiaomi has previously released phones with 108MP under the Mi branding only.
Well, the information about these three phones is pretty scarce right now and we can’t come out to any conclusion. It is actually the time to gain some insights on the Redmi Note 10 series but it appears there is still some room vacant for the leaks on the existing series. The Redmi Note 9 lineup already includes the standard Note 9, the Note 9 Pro, and the Note 9 Pro Max variant. So, if the tip turns out to be true, the Note 9 series will have a total of six phones.
Note that it might be possible that the tipster has made a typo there and it should rather be Note 10. But, the machine-translation of the post shows it to be the Note 9 series.
The phone with the 108MP camera could be the same device that the tipster previously noted. The tipster said the phone dubbed “J17” may come with 108MP and a telephoto macro camera, like the one introduced on the Poco F2 Pro.
Talking about the Redmi Note 10, the phone is said to be coming as a rebranded version of Mi 10T Lite. It is expected to feature Snapdragon 750 processor and 5G connectivity.
What do you think, what’s your take on this?
