The latest offering from Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi, the Redmi 7 series is all set to hit the Chinese market in the coming weeks. Recently Xiaomi spun off Redmi and operate as independent brands from now on. The Redmi Note 7 was launched after the split and has became a huge hit in Chinese market, with them claiming that over 1 million units till now already.
Now, latest reports indicates that the company will be launching a new smartphone, the Redmi 7 soon, and it has received certification in China as we speak.
The information about the Redmi 7 was first revealed when it’s price was teased on Weibo by Xiaomi China CEO. Recently, some variants of the Redmi 7 were approved by the Certification agency in Singapore. Now, more variants of the device has been certified by the Chinese 3C certification authority.
The latest variants of the Redmi 7 certified by Chinese 3C bears the model numbers M180F6LE, M180F6LT, and M180F6LC. However, variant that was recently certified in Singapore carried the model number M180F6LG. This indicates that the new variants will be China specific models most probably.
While there isn’t much information available from the listing, it does gives some light about the charger. The listing reveals that the phone will come with the 10W MDY-09-EK charger, which means that the Redmi 7 wont support fast charging, which is a bit of disappointment.
It is expected that the Redmi 7 will be catering to the entry level segment, and the company will launch the Redmi 7A and Redmi 7 Pro, as they have did with all other series. As per the post made by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun on Weibo, the Redmi 7 will be priced somewhere between RMB 700 and RMB 800 (about Rs 7,200 and Rs 8,300). However there will be a significant difference in price when the phone makes it’s way into India.
