The upcoming Redmi Qualcomm Snapdragon 855-based flagship phone(s) will be well optimised for gaming, according to Redmi chief Lu Weibing. Weibling who has been actively teasing the features of the company’s first true-blue flagship phone(s) recently highlighted its two-day battery credentials. Now he has confirmed that the phone(s) will be also geared towards high-octane gaming. The reason why we say phone(s) is because rumour has it that Redmi is currently working on two flagship phones – one of which could end up becoming the Poco F2.
Although Weibing does not say much about the company’s upcoming flagship phone(s) with regards to how it is looking to offer a high-octane gaming experience, he says the team has been able to seemingly address three parameters – break, delay, and frequency reduction. Xiaomi already has a dedicated game mode called gaming speed boost that optimises system resources to improve performance – that, in addition to intelligent CPU acceleration and dynamic resource allocation features that were introduced in MIUI 9. It would be interesting to see if what Weibing is referring to builds upon all of that or whether Redmi is looking to roll-out some new MIUI quirks alongside its new flagship(s).
Weibing has also teased the seemingly high AnTuTu score of the flagship(s) although he hasn’t shared a number just yet.
Rumor has it that Redmi is simultaneously working on two flagship phones – the M1903F10 and M1903F11 respectively. Since the Redmi phone with model number M1903F10G has already been spotted on the IMDA database in Singapore, we have reason to believe Redmi may launch it soon enough. Also, because the Poco F1 came with an ‘E10’ naming convention, the Redmi phone with an ‘F10’ convention may globally be launched as the Pocophone F2 (Poco F2 in India).
Both the alleged Redmi flagship phones are said to come in as many as four configurations - 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB. Both the alleged Redmi flagships are further said to come in three colours – red, blue and carbon fibre.
Since no part of all this is official, we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt.
Rumoured specs of at least one of these Redmi flagship phones include a 6.39-inch screen with a 2340x1080p resolution, triple rear cameras consisting of one 48MP primary sensor, a 13MP sensor (possibly wide-angle) and an 8MP sensor (possibly telephoto), and a 32MP front camera.
There's no official word when Redmi will launch its flagship phone(s) although rumour mills suggested the launch could happen on May 13. Redmi is also expected to launch a Redmi laptop alongside the flagship phone(s).
