Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing said that the new flagship device will be competitively priced. The executive also said that the company is preparing enough stock of the device. Earlier, Global Vice President and India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain had spoken about the Redmi phone that will come with new Snapdragon SoCs.

Meanwhile, the details regarding the new Redmi phone is still sketchy, there are rumours that the phone could be released in India as Poco F2. To recall, Poco F1 was also launched with the flagship Snapdragon 845 SoC and was competitively priced. Poco F2, if released in the next few months, will pose a tough challenge to the OnePlus 7 series smartphones. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage option of Poco F1 is available in India for Rs 20,999.
