Xiaomi and Redmi parted ways recently, well, not really parted ways but instead of being Xiaomi Redmi(₹ 13999 at flipkart), they are now two separate entities and Redmi is now a full-fledged sub-brand of Xiaomi. Under the new Redmi brand, the company recently announced its Note 7 Pro smartphone in China which features a 48MP rear camera and is surprisingly quite affordable at 999 Yuan (roughly Rs 10,341). However, Android Authority reports that the company also announced that a Pro variant of the handset is also under development and it will feature a different 48MP sensor than the one used on the Redmi Note 7. The company is said to be using the 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor on the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone, which was announced by Sony back in July last year.
