Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 Pro in China recently. At the same launch event, Xiaomi confirmed to unveil the Redmi Note 7 Pro in February. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer is working on a bunch of phones to launch in the months to come including flagship phones like Mi 9, Android One phones like Mi A3 and the company is also prepping to launch its first Android Go phone. Xiaomi is reportedly currently working on its first-ever Android Go phone which is likely to bear the name Redmi Go. Out of all the aforementioned Xiaomi phones, three of them are likely to head to India soon, a new report claims.
A report coming from Mysmartprice reveals the India launch details about the Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Go. The report suggests that all the three Redmi phones will go official in India by the end of the first quarter. This means that the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Go will launch in India by March. Notably, Xiaomi is yet to reveal India launch details of these Redmi phones.
Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 in China early this month. As the tradition goes like, we expect the same China variant of the Note to hit the Indian shores very soon. This also means that the India price of Note 7 may also not differ a lot from the China price. In China, the Redmi Note 7 has been launched with a starting price of 999 Yuan, which roughly translates to Rs 10,500.
Some reports suggest that the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro will be costlier than the Redmi Note 7. The Note 7 Pro is expected to come with better camera and hardware setup compared to the Redmi Note 7. Another leak previously revealed that the Redmi Note 7 Pro could be priced between CNY 1,399 – 1,499, which translates to Rs 14,600 – 15,700.
As far as the overall design is concerned the Note 7 Pro is likely to be the same as the Redmi Note 7. This means that the Note 7 Pro may come with gradient finish, waterdrop notch, slimmer bezels, and also be available in funky colours. The Redmi Note 7 retails in various colour options — red, pink, blue, purple, black, among others. Same is expected of the Redmi Note 7 Pro too.
The screen of the Redmi Note 7 Pro could be similar to the Redmi Note 7, but Xiaomi might use AMOLED display in this phone. Notably, Redmi Note 7 comes packed with a 6.3-inch full-HD+ LTPS display with screen resolution of 1080×2340 pixels and aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The two Note 7 phones will differ as far as the camera and hardware setup is concerned.
The Redmi Note 7 is powered by 2.2GHz Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC coupled with Adreno 512 GPU, while the Note 7 Pro is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 675 processor. Furthermore, a new leak suggests that the Redmi Note 7 Pro will also come with a 48MP main camera but may use Sony IMX 586 sensor, unlike the Note 7. On the rear panel, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is likely to come with main 48MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a second 5MP sensor for capturing depth shots. On the front, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is expected to include a 13-megapixel camera like the Note 7.
