Xiaomi new sub-brand’s Redmi series has debuted with Redmi Note 7. The company has launched the Redmi Note 7 at an event in China. The smartphone will go on sale in China at a starting price of 999 Yuan (approx. Rs 10,300). The smartphone is available in red, blue and black colour options.
Redmi Note 7 Specifications
The Redmi Note 7 sports a metal unibody design and bears a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel. As expected, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC in the country. The smartphone comes with a gradient glass-like back finish that we’ve seen in most of the Huawei and RealMe phones. The new Redmi Note 7 carries a new “Redmi by Xiaomi” logo on the back.
Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D curved glass. Interestingly, the Redmi Note 7 is the first Redmi phone with a USB Type-C port instead of typical MicroUSB. The device backs 4,000mAh battery which is compatible with 18 watts quick, wired charging.
As rumoured earlier, the new Redmi Note 7 features a whopping 48-megapixel (Samsung GM1 sensor) camera on the back which has an aperture of f/1.8 and secondary camera of 5-megapixel for depth-sensing. Xiaomi claims the 48-megapixel sensor employs pixel-binning to take better shots at a 12-megapixel resolution with larger 1.6-micron pixels. Up front, there is a 13-megapixel selfie camera with standard beauty and AI modes.
Connectivity options include USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
