|

Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi just teased the arrival of an upcoming smartphone on Amazon on Thursday. It is the first Redmi smartphone to be unveiled by the brand in 2020. Being teased with the tagline, "Desh Ka Dumdaar", it is believed to be the sequel to the Redmi 8A, which was launched last year.

Soon after the teaser was spotted, it was said that it could be the Redmi 9A. However, the source code for the Amazon listing has revealed that it could be dubbed Redmi 8A Dual instead of Redmi 9A. Probably, this could be due to the presence of dual cameras at the rear, which has been confirmed in the teaser.

The alt text for the promotional poster that was listed on the online retailer Amazon suggests that it could be called Redmi 8A Dual, suggests a report by 91mobiles. And, there are screenshots to back this claim as well. However, it is only a speculation and we cannot confirm anything for now.

While there is no official confirmation from Redmi regarding the upcoming smartphone, the teaser has confirmed a few aspects. It has revealed the presence of a dual-camera setup at its rear and a 5000mAh battery. Notably, the Redmi 8A has a single rear camera, so the dual-camera module could be the upgrade that we can expect. As of now, there is no clarity if there will be other upgrades to the device.

Notably, the Realme C3 has been launched starting from Rs. 6,999 and this could be the reason for the Redmi 8A Dual to also be priced similarly.
