Xiaomi’s next phone will be launched on January 10 in Beijing. Xiaomi has still kept quiet about the name of the phone, but has finally put all the confusion of what the number 48 represented to sleep.
Now, with a new teaser posted by Xiaomi’s director of product management, Donovan Sung, the 48 represents the power of the phone’s camera. We are still scratching our heads for the reason why Xiaomi teased the phone with a ‘4800’ in the picture.
In the post, we can clearly see that the phone comes with a dual 48 MP ‘AI’ camera on the rear.
