Xiaomi’s first smartphone launch in 2019 is the Redmi Note device, but this time, you won’t see the Xiaomi branding as it is “Redmi” as a new sub-brand incepting along with this phone. The Redmi Note 7 is official in China and it comes with quite some changes with the company opting for a new sub-brand. It is the all-glass design that you see here, unlike how every Redmi Note phone earlier being made with a metal back.
On the front, the Redmi Note 7 comes with the little waterdrop-like notch and a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display and internally, we see the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor this time. The company had gone for the same Snapdragon 636 in both, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 6, and it was well expected that the Redmi Note 7 will be powered by the same chip that did well on the Xiaomi Mi A2. Taking it more from the same phone, the Redmi Note 7 now has removed the headphone jack and instead of MicroUSB, you’d see a USB Type-C port.
The most interesting part here about the phone is its camera on the back. There’s a big 48-megapixel camera with the F/1.8 aperture and it is said by the company that the camera would use Pixel binning to take better 12-megapixel captures. It is the Samsung GM1 sensor that the rear camera uses. On the front is a 13-megapixel camera for selfies. Just like the earlier Redmi Note devices, the Note 7 will have a 4000 mAh battery, and there is a 18W fast charge support offered here.
The pricing set in the Chinese market for the base variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage is 999 Yuan (around Rs. 10400) while the 4GB RAM, 64GB storage variant is priced at 1199 Yuan, and the top-end variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage costs 1399 Yuan.
