Xiaomi has officially confirmed that it will soon bring a new smartphone powered by the very latest MediaTek Helio G90T processor. Manu Kumar Jain, Global VP @Xiaom i& MD@XiaomiIndia took to his Twitter to make an announcement on the same and give more reasons to the followers to stay connected with them.
Jain posted a teaser poster in which the MediaTek G90T chipset is shown with a promise of a device from Xiaomi as “coming soon.” The teaser doesn’t include any other details and not even the name of the device, but it’s speculated Xiaomi will make use of this new chips on the upcoming Note 8 Pro device.
Note that Xiaomi is already having its subsidiary Black Shark that launches gaming smartphones, so the company may not want to launch a completely new series in Redmi series that will serve particularly gaming needs. But it could be possible that the upcoming phone may come at a lower cost compared to what beasty Black Shark phones come at. This will offer users the flexibility to choose gaming smartphones from Xiaomi according to their budget.
