New reports suggest that the Redmi brand could be working on a Snapdragon 855 powered phone that is likely to launch this year. This comes directly from the Redmi CEO Lu Weibing, where it up on the Chinese microblogging site, Weibo to announce the information. A picture of him was posted that includes the Redmi team in Xioami's Shenzhen R&D Institute. 

This potentially was a meeting where the crew discussed the future of Redmi as a brand and its upcoming products under the Redmi brand. There isn't much disclosed about the device powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor.

Note that Xiaomi last year had launched the Poco F1 that was the most affordable smartphone in the market with Snapdragon 845  processor that is priced under Rs 20,000.

Getting on with Redmi, the company recently launched the Redmi Note 7 in China which is likely to launch in India soon. The Redmi Note 7 comes with a 48 Megapixel camera paired with a Samsung sensor. The company is also planning on launching the Redmi Note 7 Pro that will feature a Sony sensor for better image optimization. Just like the Redmi Note 7, the Redmi Note 7 Pro too will feature a 48 Megapixel main camera on the rear panel.
