Dual-camera setups are all the rage right now. Huawei is screaming from the rooftops about the dual-cameras on the back of its flagship P9 smartphone. The P9, like other high-end devices, costs upwards of $500 if you are to pick one from a shop in any part of the world. What about the budget market segment?
Huawei’s Honor sub-brand just unveiled a budget smartphone with a dual-camera setup, the Honor 8. Another Chinese smartphone brand, Xiaomi, looks set to enter the same space with its own budget dual-camera device if news and leaks spreading on Chinese social media sites are to be believed.
According to a leak, the next Redmi Note smartphone from the company, the Redmi Note 4, will have a two cameras at the back. Unlike what we’ve seen so far from Huawei and others, the dual cameras will follow each other vertically instead of horizontally with the LED flash coming in between them.
Further details of the Redmi Note 4 are scarce at the moment but it is expected to pack 3GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor.
Just yesterday, Xiaomiu’s global Vice President Hugo Barra announced that the company had managed to sell 110 million of its Redmi range of budget smartphones. The Redmi Note 4 may just tip the scales in the Chinese company’s favour further.
