Xiaomi finally launched its much-awaited Redmi Note 7 smartphone with a massive 48-megapixel main camera at an event in China, yesterday. This is the first phone from Xiaomi’s another Sub-brand Redmi. This camera centric phone comes with an unbelievable starting price of $150 (approximately Rs 10,500).
The 48-megapixel lens on the Redmi Note 7 uses a Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor. But in the launch event, the company hinted at the Redmi Note 7 Pro will have a Sony’s IMX586 sensor powered 48-megapixel camera on the rear.
According to the XDA Developers, the Sony IMX586 is suitable for low-light photo enhancement. It uses ‘pixel binning’ to combine four adjacent pixels into one for low-light shots. It significantly improves the quality of photos shot in low-light conditions. This means that the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro will have a great camera for low-light photography.

Although there is no pricing information, given the unbelievable price tag for Redmi Note 7, the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro is expected to arrive with a surprising price.
