Redmi is working on a 5G smartphone with MediaTek Dimensity 800 chipset

Redmi will soon launch a smartphone powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800 5G chipset. Redmi, the independent brand which spun out from Xiaomi, announced a new smartphone in China yesterday.

A 5G-enabled Redmi phone with the model number M2004J7AC has been listed on China’s regulatory body TENAA’s website. The listing not only gives us a first look at this Redmi device but also confirms some of its key specifications. This device packs a waterdrop notch display, a triple rear camera housed in a square module, and a shiny Note 9-style rear panel.

Talking about the specifications, this device is rumored to feature a 6.57-inch Full-HD+ OLED display with a 1080 x 2400 resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio. Yeah, an OLED display but it doesn’t say whether it supports a higher refresh rate or not. The Redmi Note 9 series served a major disappointment in comparison to the Poco X2 or Realme 6.

In terms of cameras, the phone with M2004J7AC model number has been listed with four sensors on the back that can also be seen in the back-panel image. The primary camera on the back is expected to have a 48-megapixel shooter and the single front camera is expected to be a 16-megapixel shooter. From the image, we can make out that the selfie camera is housed in a notch. The volume buttons and the power button can be seen on the right side of the phone. The battery capacity is listed at 4,420mAh and the phone is said to measure 164.15×75.75×8.99mm and weigh 206 grams. The TENAA listing also mentions the colour options that include blue, black, green, pink, red, silver, and white.

Notably, a phone with the model number M2004J7AC was earlier spotted on 3C certification website, alongside another phone with model number M2004J7BC. These phones are believed to be the Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro.
