The website currently lists the base 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage version of the Xiaomi smartphone at a price of MLD 5,799, which translates to about Rs. 25,000, a steep increase from the current-gen Redmi Note 5 Pro.
The record also cites some inner specifications, such as 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, dual cameras (12-megapixel + 5-megapixel) in the rear, two camera detectors (20-megapixel + 5-megapixel) at the front, and a 6.26-inch full-HD+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels and screen notch.

The YouTuber also claims that a Snapdragon 636 SoC powers the telephone’s internals.
