Recently, Xiaomi India has confirmed that the company will be holding an event on June 7. The event will be the platform for a new smartphone (most probably Redmi Y2). Today, Xiaomi send another invites and teases as with the latest photo clarifying some of the features of upcoming flagship.
Getting into details, the Chinese giant posted an invite containing the image of a camera lens. We should also note that Xiaomi India is constantly teasing us on its official Twitter account (Redmi India). This one is no exception. All teasers contain #FindYourSelfie and #RealYou hashtags. This hints that the upcoming Xiaomi flagship will have the camera (rear and front selfie) as the main highlight.
The teaser released today illustrates a sketch of a human face at one side and a camera sensor on the other side. It could mean two things:
- First, the selfie camera features AI portrait or beauty mode
- Second, which is less likely, is the phone to support face-recognition
Xiaomi recently released Redmi S2 featuring the same 16 MP front camera featuring AI beauty. Moreover, there’s a dedicated front LED as well. With the 2μm large pixel camera, the phone can capture some stunning and beautiful selfies even in low light conditions. Xiaomi says that it’s the best Redmi selfie phone till date.
