Xiaomi has taken seriously the new flagship SoC platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. At first, right during the SoC announcement, the head of the company, Lei Jun confirmed the use of Snapdragon 888 in Mi 11. Then the head of the Redmi brand Liu Weibing announced the preparation of the Redmi phone on Snapdragon 888 (Lu Weibing). Apparently, such a device will be the Redmi K40 Pro. And now there are details about the third model.
According to a well-known and well-informed Chinese smartphone manufacturers’ affairs, an insider under the nickname Digital Chat Station, Black Shark is already preparing to release a model codenamed “Emperor” on Snapdragon 888. Its feature will be the design of the smartphone itself and the charging. An insider directly writes: “fast charging design deserves attention“. He also assures that the flagship Redmi on Snapdragon 888 will be released much earlier than the Redmi K30 Pro and K30 Pro Zoom, built on Snapdragon 865. Those, we recall, debuted on March 24 this year. If the new model comes out “much earlier,” then its announcement can be expected in January, at the latest – in February. That is why the informant does not recommend buying flagship smartphones now – there is simply no point in this. It is better to wait a couple of months before new products on Snapdragon 888 appear on sale.
