The Note 7's 2.5D curved glass back and gradient colour design with a glossy finish gives it a premium feel, the kind we're used to seeing in flagship smartphones.
To inspire greater confidence, the Redmi Note 7 is now covered by an 18-month warranty instead of the usual 12 months. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, which is an octa-core processor fabricated using 14nm process with Kryo 260 cores and Adreno 512 GPU. Following the tradition, the company has unveiled the Redmi Note 7 that aims to offer consumers the best of all things at an extremely competitive price.
Storage: The Note 7 comes in two storage models - 32GB and 64GB.
That said, this 48 MP rear camera on the Redmi Note 7 is a part of the dual camera setup which is placed vertically on the back of the smartphone in the top-left corner. Up front, there is a 13-megapixel selfie sensor as well.
This device has a 4000mAh battery under the hood, much like many Xiaomi devices. But considering some of the Xiaomi phones are getting upgraded to MIUI 10 and Android 9 Pie, we expect Xiaomi to bring the latest software to Redmi Note 7 as well.
This is the first time Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro - which was launched in September 2018 - has got a discount. The waterdrop notch is circular unlike it is in phones from Vivo, Oppo, OnePlus, and others.
The Redmi Note 7 is Redmi's first phone since it became a standalone brand and also the first Xiaomi/Redmi phone with a 48MP camera but it won't be the last. Still, the 48MP camera should be welcome considering the low price of the handset. Meanwhile, the fingerprint sensor on the back is now a given. There is a secondary 5 MP shooter for AI purposes and Portrait Mode. More storage means more money - CNY1,199 for the 4/64 GB phone and CNY1,399 for the 6/64 GB variant.
On that note - yes, yes indeed, there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack in the mix.
The smartphone will go on sale in China at a starting price of 999 Yuan (Rs 10,300 approximately). However, it's not clear if Xiaomi will be releasing the Redmi 7 or Redmi Note 7 at that event. The 64GB storage variant with 4GB and 6GB of RAM is priced at CNY 1199 (approx INR 11,999) and CNY 1399 (approx INR 13,999) respectively.
