Redmi was rumoured to launch a gaming smartphone at the end of March but it never happened. On the first day of April, the company brought some good news by hinting that the device could be presented at a launch conference that is scheduled to happen sometime later this month.

According to the source, the launch conference is revealed by the Product Director of Redmi Wang Teng to a netizen on Weibo. Therefore, this couldn't be more reliable as it's coming from someone who works at the company. It is also worth mentioning that Wang is the one who asked his followers who are interested in gaming smartphones to wait for a bit.
