The Xiaomi brand Redmi has revealed that they will be releasing a gaming smartphone soon – one that is set to take on the Realme GT Neo. Here’s what we know about it so far.

The gaming smartphone is said to be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC chipset with model number M2104K10C. It has reportedly already cleared China’s TENAA and 3C certification platforms with the codename Ares. It will come with a 48-megapixel quad rear camera setup and a Sony IMX686 64-megapixel main lens.

Other leaks claim that the phone will have a 90Hz LCD screen, a 5,000mAh battery, and 22.5W fast charging so gamers can fully charge the device in as little as half an hour. Some rumors say that it might also come with physical shoulder triggers to amp up the gaming experience.

It will come at an affordable price.

Although a bit pricier than the Realme phone it is being compared to, the Redmi gaming phone is said to cost $300 to $380 (around Php14,584 to Php18,474), still affordable for gamers aiming for a phone in mid-range price.
