According to Gizmochina, Lu revealed that Redmi phones will be the first to benefit from Xiaomi's Super Charge Turbo battery tech, however he didn't offer a timeline for their availability. The fast-charging tech could arrive in the company's forthcoming phone running on a Snapdragon 855. On the other hand, it would be rare for such technology to arrive in cheaper phones first.
The Redmi sub-brand's origins are at the lower end, such as the new Redmi 7, a smartphone that launched this month and costs just $105. The entry-level model offers a 6.26-inch screen, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage on a Snapdragon 632.
