An unnamed Xiaomi smartphone which carries model number M1901F9T has passed through TENAA, revealing a few of the phone’s specifications. While the name of the handset is not yet confirmed, it is speculated to be a variant of the Redmi 7-series and could possibly be the Redmi 7 Pro.
The TENAA listing of the smartphone clearly says that the phone will come with a notched display, similar to Redmi 6 Pro. However, unlike the Redmi 6 Pro’s rectangular notch, the upcoming smartphone will sport a tiny water-drop notch, in line with the current trend.
Further, the listing reveals that it will come with a 5.84-inch display, which we expect to offer a Full HD+ screen resolution with 19:9 aspect ratio and some sort of screen protection on top such as Corning Gorilla Glass. The phone’s dimensions are also confirmed — 147.76×71.89×7.8mm.
Under the hood, the phone will be powered by a 2,900mAh battery. The phone will be powered by an Android-based MIUI 10, however, the specific Android version has not been revealed. Also, the phone features a dual camera setup on the back, powered by artificial intelligence. It also packs a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for added protection.
The phone is speculated to be the Redmi 7 or Redmi 7 Pro given that the Redmi 6 and 6 Pro both comes with a 5.45-inch display and dimension measurement is also similar. If the M1901F9T is indeed the Redmi 7 series phone, it will be a significant improvement in terms of the screen-to-body ratio.
The “M19” in the phone’s model number indicates that the phone will be launched next year. This is in line with previous reports suggesting new Redmi smartphones launch in January 2019. We expect to get more information about the phone’s specifications in the coming days.
Notably, other smartphone models from Xioami which have already passed the certification stage, including M1901F7C, M1901F7E, and M1901F7T, are also expected to be a part of the upcoming Redmi 7 series.
One of the recently certified phones from Xioami could be the one featuring 48-megapixel camera sensor. A recent report speculates that a Redmi series smartphone will pack a 48-megapixel camera sensor, which will be a part of a triple-camera setup. The phone could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 chipset.
The phone with a 48MP rear camera is also reported to have a punch-hole in the display to incorporate the selfie camera. Just like the Samsung Galaxy A8s and Honor View 20, this Xiaomi device will have an LCD panel provided by China-based display manufacturing company BOE.
