In July, it was reported that the popular Chinese phone manufacturer Xiaomi was working on two phones. One with a 108 MP camera and a 64 MP camera. Then it was also revealed that the Xiaomi devices were codenamed “Gauguin” and “Gauguin Pro”.
The popular Digital Chat Station on the Weibo platform, which then came up with the news, now says it could be Xiaomi’s cheapest phone so far. According to the leak, a Xiaomi phone with model number M2007J17C has reportedly been granted network access permission.
It will likely be officially revealed sometime in October. And it could potentially be a member of the Redmi Note 10 series. Or even in the stable of the Mi CC series.
The 108MP camera phones in Xiaomi’s stable
Both devices are expected to have a quad camera on the back, which is the norm for a 2020 smartphone. The “Gauguin” smartphone will likely have a 64MP quad camera setup, while the “Gauguin Pro” is expected to come with a 108 MP setup along with three other cameras. Digital Chat Station also claimed that the camera specifications may differ for Chinese and global variants.
It is expected to be packaged in Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC instead of MediaTek Dimesnity series.
As of now, Xiaomi has four phones with a 108MP primary camera, namely: Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Mi Note 10 Pro and Mi Alpha. Of them, only the Mi 10 is available in India and it is the cheapest phone in the market with a 108 MP camera.
The rest of the specifications of the upcoming phones have yet to be revealed. But expect a ton of information in the coming days.
