Xiaomi recently spun off it’s budget series, Redmi as a sub brand. They are all geared up to launch a smartphone with 48MP camera on January 10. Since the Chinese manufacturer is yet to announce its official name, rumours suggest it could be Redmi Pro 2, from the previous reports. The company is also working on another Redmi handset- the Redmi Note 7. The smartphone today was spotted in benchmarking website GeekBench with a Snapdragon 660 chipset.

At the beginning of 2018, the Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched with a Snapdragon 636. In the second half of the year, the company launched its successor Redmi Note 6 Pro but with the same SD 636 chipset. The GeekBench appearance suggests the Redmi Note 7 will have a better chipset. It will house a SD 660 which will be coupled with 6GB RAM and run the latest Android 9 Pie OS. The handset managed to score 1462 and 4556 points on the single core and multi-core tests. Other handsets from the company that are powered by the same chipset are the Xiaomi Mi Note 3, Mi A2 (Mi 6X) and Mi 8 Lite.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro that was released in India was rebranded as Redmi Note 5 in the Chinese market. Xiaomi didn’t launch Redmi 6 Pro smartphone and since the Redmi Note 7 has already started appearing in benchmarking sites, it seems that the Note 6 may be skipped.

The Redmi Note 7 will likely to be renamed as Redmi Note 7 Pro outside the Chinese markets. Currently, there is not much information about the device but there is a possibility that Xiaomi may cut down the display size by including a waterdrop notch. Though the company hasn’t teased any new features on the smartphone, we will be getting all info on the January 10 launch event.
