Full-Screen Redmi Phone Arrives TENAA, Said to Come With Snapdragon 450 SoC

Most manufacturers have jumped on to the full-screen train releasing models that cut across all categories. Xiaomi’s Mi MIX 2 is its only 18:9 phone but that may change soon as a full-screen Redmi phone has been seen on TENAA.

Redmi MET7

The Redmi phone with model number MET7 has smaller bezels compared to its predecessors but not as thin as we have seen on some other phones. It is easy to see that the display has an 18:9 aspect ratio. There are no markings on the lower bezel to signify that it has capacitive buttons so this should be on-screen buttons like the MI MIX 2.

The back of the phone still has that familiar Redmi look but seems to have been slightly redesigned. The back looks curvier to make handling easy and the antenna lines are not as thick. There is a single rear camera with a LED flash and fingerprint scanner below it, all three are arranged vertically. Towards the bottom is theMi logo.

The specifications of the Redmi MET7 are unknown as TENAA has not “fully added” it to its database yet. However, Weibo user @grass grass grass says the Redmi phone may launch with the 14nm Snapdragon 450 processor. The SD450 is an octa-core chip, taking over from the 28nm SD435 as the new entry level king.
