Update: The TENAA listings of M1901F7C, M1901F7E and M1901F7T have been updated. The “Redmi by Xiaomi” text on the rear side of the phone hints that it could be the Redmi phone that will go official on Jan. 10. It will be the first Redmi smartphone after the separation of Redmi brand from Xiaomi. The M1901F7C/E/T handset seems to be equipped with a glass back with color gradient appeal. A vertical dual camera setup can be seen on the top-left corner of the smartphone. The frontside of the phone features a waterdrop notch display.
Xiaomi is all set to spin off its Redmi sub-brand as a new independent brand on Jan. 10 with the announcement of a new Redmi phone with 48-megapixel camerav. Rumors are claiming that the mysterious Redmi device could be arriving in the market as Redmi Pro 2 while other reports have claimed that it could be the Redmi 7 Pro handset. Three model numbers such as M1901F7C, M1901F7E and M1901F7T have now surfaced on TENAA with preliminary specs just ahead of the Jan. 10 launch event. This suggests that the newly approved devices by TENAA could be the variants of the alleged Redmi Pro 2.
Since the M1901F7C, M1901F7E and M1901F7T devices have the same dimensions, display size and battery, they are three variants of an upcoming Xiaomi device. The handset measures 159.21 x 75.21 x 8.1mm and houses a 6.3-inch display. It is packed with a 3,900mAh battery. Xiaomi’s Redmi series of smartphones with better specs have always carried big batteries. Hence, it appears that it could be the 48-megapixel Redmi phone that is scheduled to go official in the coming week.
