Redmi, which used to be brand under Xiaomi, recently split up from the parent company and is now working independently. Since it went solo, the company has launched four smartphones — Redmi Note 7, Redmi Go, Redmi 7, and Redmi Note 7 Pro.

The company has also confirmed that it will be launching a flagship smartphone which will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core chipset. However, the company’s President confirmed that it won’t be making debut anytime soon.

Now, Redmi President took to Weibo asking users if the company should launch a smartphone featuring a 32 MP front-facing camera sensor. This hints that the company has already started working on a smartphone with 32 MP selfie snapper.

If the company is indeed working on a device having 32 MP front-facing camera sensor, there’s a possibility that the phone could be Redmi Y3, the successor of the Redmi Y2 launched last year. For those who are unaware, the Redmi Y-series is the company’s lineup for the selfie-centric smartphones.

There are already a few smartphones available in the market featuring a 32 MP camera on the front side, which includes Huawei P30 and Vivo V15 Pro (Review). Both of them are equipped with 32-megapixel Samsung GD1 sensor.

The 32-megapixel Samsung GD1 sensor is equipped with real-time HDR mode. It has a single pixel size of 0.8 microns and also supports 4-in-1 pixel binning technology for capturing brighter shots in the low-light conditions.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi 7 smartphone in India by the end of this month. Later, the company could launch two other devices — Redmi Y3 and Redmi 7A. So, it’s likely that the 32 MP Redmi smartphone is the Redmi Y3 that tipped to launch soon.
