Earlier this month, Redmi launched the Note 7 - the company’s first phone under its own brand. Amid the rumours of Redmi preparing to launch the Pro variant of the device, tech news platform mysmartprice has reported that three Redmi-branded phones, the Redmi Note 7, the Redmi Note 7 Pro, and the Redmi Go, are expected to be launched in India in the first quarter of 2019.
Although, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is not yet launched in China, but as per the information coming in from Weibo, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is expected to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor which was announced back in October. With this, the Redmi Note 7 Pro could become the first phone ever to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC, which is said to beat the Snapdragon 670 and Snapdragon 710 in performance.
The Redmi Note 7 sports a tiny notch on top of a 6.3-inch LCD panel with 2340x1080 pixels. The phone is housed in a 2.5D curved glass chassis and has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The rear camera unit is aligned vertically in the top corner with a single LED flash unit below the camera. This is the first Redmi phone with a 48MP sensor combined with a 5MP secondary sensor for portrait shots. Redmi claims the 48MP sensor helps take better shots in low-light.
Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. In China, the phone is offered in 3GB, 4GB or 6GB RAM variants, while the storage variants are 32GB or 64GB. There is a 4,000mAh battery inside, which is same as the phone’s predecessor. On the front is a 13MP camera featuring AI algorithms for face beautification and portrait mode. The Redmi Note 7 starts from 999 Yuan which roughly converts to Rs 10,381 for the 3GB+32GB variant while the 4GB+64GB variant is priced 1199 Yuan (roughly Rs 12,455) and the 6GB+64GB variant retails for 1399 Yuan (roughly Rs 14,532).
