Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Redmi Note 7 in India at the end of the month. The teaser page on Flipkart with the hashtag #JustHere seems to hint at its being a Flipkart exclusive.
The Redmi Note 7 was launched in China last month, and has already sold over a million units. We don't have a concrete indication of the price as yet, which will be the biggest takeaway from the launch event in New Delhi.
Redmi Note 7 specs
The phone features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with 2340×1080 pixels screen resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The display has support for 450-nits brightness, 1,500:1 contrast ratio, sun legibility, and eye protection mode.
Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC with 3GB/4GB/6GB RAM and 32GB/64GB internal storage. It also comes with a dedicated microSD slot for memory expansion.
The Note 7 features a 48MP primary sensor (f/1.8 aperture) and a 5MP secondary camera with AI technology. On the front is a 13MP snapper housed in the display notch. It is also equipped with features like AI Smart Beauty and AI Face Unlock.
The device has a 3.5mm headphone jack and also features an infrared blaster which will allow users to use it as a remote control. A fingerprint scanner resides on the glass rear panel of the smartphone. The Redmi Note 7 will run Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 out-of-the-box.
The phone packs a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support. With an 18W fast charger (to be purchased separately) the phone can be fully charged in just an hour and 43 minutes.
