After the presentation of the hit sales Redmi Note 7, the head of Xiaomi announced that his device with a flagship chip will appear in the model range of the sub-brand. He promised that the company will release a top-end product based on the Snapdragon 855, but it is unknown when this event will take place. And today, the head of Redmi, Liu Weibing, has published a post on his page on the Weibo network, in which he said that it’s definitely not worth waiting for the release of the “budget” flagship in the near future. In particular, he appealed to the company’s fans with a request not to fall asleep with questions about the release of the flagship Snapdragon 855, at least in the near future. Now the priorities are the sale of at least 10 million handsets of already released models.
It seems that the company’s plans do not include the release of new items with a top-end processor from Qualcomm in the first half of this year. Perhaps, it will debut by the end of the year, when the demand for the hardware platform itself will drop and it should lower the price tag a bit in anticipation of the release of a new generation of the flagship processor. In addition, it is possible that the flagship Redmi will become an exclusive for the Chinese market, because for the conquest of the rest of the world must submit a Pocophone F2. The manufacturer does not need two products that compete with each other, so it is imprudent and illogical to take another Snapdragon 855 based device beyond the limits of the Middle Kingdom.
