Ten days ago we spotted a Redmi phone with an elevating mechanism for the selfie camera and lack of any bezels, waterdrops, notches, whatsoever, on the front panel. Now the device was spotted in the arms of Lu Weibing, the brand manager while ordering some stuff at a movie theater. This is likely the Snapdragon 855-powered phone that he has been posting about lately and it appears to be real and running.
Sources from China say this was right before the new Avengers movie, and later the Xiaomi PR department confirmed Lu was indeed at the movie theater, of course, with nothing to comment on the matter of an upcoming phone.
So far we have only heard rumors and not seen any official specs about this mysterious Snapdragon 855-powered Redmi device. We expect it to have a 3.5 mm audio jack on top, but that is known from the earlier spy photos. It seems like the phone is running MIUI, so the suggestion that Lu might be using a competitorís phone, for some reason, is out of the question.

I hope that you do relize that there won't be a poco f2... This is what comes after with better design and less money saving and durable phone just less beautiful the the mi 9..
No it would be much cheaper with flagship specefication than MI9 and other brand's flagship phone... If i'm not wrong then its price would be between $250 to $350...
I bet this will be around $400 to 600 since tippers in china says it will have NFC, triple back camera, front 32 mp cameras, 3.5mm jack and SD 855. I wont be surprised if this has the same price as Mi 9, which is... okay? Maybe? But I hope there'...
