A couple of leaked live images of an upcoming Xiaomi smartphone have been spotted online recently through a post published on Weibo. In the post, both front and back portions of a Xiaomi handset are displayed clearly.
Xiaomi seems to be on a roll and after unveiling the Mi Mix recently now the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi phone has been spotted online. The images which were posted on the Chinese Weibo say that it might be the same device that was spotted on TENAA recently. If the rumor is to be believed the device in question is the Redmi Note 4X and the most evident change is the place of the fingerprint sensor.
The images on TENAA apparently suggested that the device will have the biometric sensor on the back, while the front will feature regular capacitive buttons like most other recent Xiaomi smartphones. Apart from the positioning of the fingerprint scanner, the rest of the package looks to be more or less in line with the earlier images, so it will be interesting to see how it all turns out in the end, reports Android Headlines.
However, it should be noted that the device spotted on TENAA certification comes with a rear fingerprint scanner and this leads us to two possibilities, either the TENAA image is not that of the Redmi Note 4X or the leaked images are not of Redmi Note 4X.
The displacement of the fingerprint sensor from the back to the front also means that the upcoming Redmi 4X might be the first device from the Redmi series to sport a front fingerprint scanner. The rear is significant of the recent Redmi series with metal body and a set of hemispherical antenna lines running across the device.
The Redmi Note 4X is rumored to feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display panel, and have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 processor. The device is also said to come with 4GB of RAM, and will reportedly be available in 32GB and 64GB internal storage variants. Xiaomi is expected to unveil the Redmi Note 4X pretty soon, so that should clear up all the confusion.
However, as of now, there is no clear information on which device this actually is and any further information on its technical aspect. We may have to wait a little more for details.
