Additionally, the device is confirmed to go up for sale on Amazon. However, the specific dates would likely be announced during the launch. As of now, the features and specifications of this upcoming smartphone are at large. The company has managed to keep the specifications hidden from the leaks.
However, a teaser shared on Amazon suggests the handset will sport a waterdrop notch display. Also, there will be a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom. The device is further teased with a water/splash-repellent design. No other specifics have been shared as of now. It remains to be seen how many camera sensors at the rear this device will be equipped and what capacity battery will be fuelling it.
However, looking at the recent launches by Xiaomi, a quad-camera setup at the back panel can be expected. It has also been suggested that the handset could be a rebadged version of the Redmi 9.
But, that hasn't been confirmed by the company. Since its launch is just a few days from nowt some more hardware details could surface online. It would be interesting to see if this device falls under Rs 10,000 segment or comes with a higher price tag.
