Categorization of this phone is a bit hard because the base model is in borderline budget while next is in mid range price segment. This a very special phone because it has got 4 cameras in total. There are two modules at front and two modules at the back. These cameras now have the new AI-portrait feature. According to the company, this is the successor of most popular Redmi Note 5 AI. The screen is also now 19:9 which means it is much taller than before but in an ergonomic body.
