The Redmi-branded Xiaomi phone with the model number M1908C3IC was seen on TENAA yesterday but only the images were revealed. The full listing has now been published and it reveals it will be the Redmi phone with the biggest battery capacity ever.
Based on the TENAA listing, the Redmi M1908C3IC has a 6.2-inch screen. The centered-camera hints at the screen having a waterdrop notch. There is a 2.0GHz octa-core processor paired with 2GB, 3GB, or 4GB of RAM. The phone will also be available with 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage depending on the RAM variant. Thanks to a MicroSD card slot, owners will be able to add up to 512GB of extra storage to the device.
The images show it has dual rear cameras. TENAA says the primary camera is a 12MP sensor but doesn’t mention the secondary sensor. There is an 8MP camera in front for selfies.
The Redmi M1908C3IC also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and runs Android 9 Pie. However, its main selling point is its massive battery capacity stated as 5000mAh by TENAA. This is the biggest battery capacity for a Redmi device. Though the Mi MAX 2 trumps it with its 5300mah battery.
TENAA says it supports fast charging even though the 3C certification only mentioned 5V/2A charging.
The new device measures 156.3mm in length thanks to its reduced bezels. However, it is quite thick at 9.4mm while its width is 75.4mm. It also weighs 190 grams. TENAA says it will be available in Black, Red, Blue, Pink, White, Green, Purple, and Gray.
While we are still in the dark regarding its official name, we can’t help but think it will launch as the Redmi 8. The display size, camera configuration, and the fact that it has a 2GB RAM version are similar features of the Redmi 7. Only time will tell if we are correct.
