The old Redmi is back!
Yes, you heard it right.
Xiaomi has been getting heat from customers for increasing the prices on their phones to the level that they’re not the most value for money options now that Asus & Realme is here. Their recent phones, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, Realme 2 Pro & Realme U1 for an example.
Now that Redmi is a sub brand, it looks like Xiaomi is looking to take their crown back. The pricing of Redmi Note 7 and the features of it seems to point to just that.
The Redmi Note 7 is the first phone from Redmi sub-brand. And it comes with a whole new design language, which we could say is inspired from Huawei & Honor phones. It comes with a gradient glass back and comes in these colour options: Blue, red, black and a purplish “twilight” gradient.
The Redmi Note 7 comes with a 6.3 inch FHD+ LTPS LCD TPS dis with a dew drop notch. The glass on the phone is a Gorilla Glass 5 one.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2Ghz. So it’s not the underclocked version of the chipset that we saw in Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 & Realme 2 Pro.
It comes in three variants: 3/32GB, 4/64GB, 6/64GB of RAM & internal storages.
Talking about the cameras, here’s the part that Xioami kept teasing. The phone comes with a primary 48MP camera, which is a Samsung GM1 sensor. This one is paired with a 5MP depth sensor. And on the front, it comes with a 13MP camera.
The phone is backed up by 4000mAh battery which supports Quick Charge 4.0. The phone also packs type C USB port, a first for Redmi series. It also does not skip on IR blaster too.
Coming to pricing, the phone is priced very aggressively, with the 3/32GB variant going for 999 Yuan (Rs.10.5K INR), and the 4/64GB is priced at 1199Yuan (Rs.12.5k INR) where as the 6/64GB variant is priced at 1399Yuan(14.5k INR).
As of now, we’re not sure when the phone will be launching in India. As it’s a Redmi Note device, we can expect the phone to be coming to India soon enough.
