The phone packs a massive 4,000mAh battery that can get you an entire day on charge. Besides, it's also the first smartphone launched by Redmi which is now an independent brand. The video touts the phone ice to be called the Redmi Note 7, and it shows the phone from the front and back. It has a tiny notch at the top of a 6.3-inch 1080p screen and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 chipset. The 3GB RAM variant will now be priced at Rs 9,999, down from its launch price of Rs 11,499, and the 4GB RAM version will cost Rs 11,999 instead of Rs 13,499. Whenever global versions of the Redmi Note 7 reach retailers in the States, we can expect the prices to be a bit higher, but still plenty cheap for what you get. The phone also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 256GB. But considering some of the Xiaomi phones are getting upgraded to MIUI 10 and Android 9 Pie, we expect Xiaomi to bring the latest software to Redmi Note 7 as well.
As promised and teased earlier, Xiaomi-s CEO, Lei Jun, has now officially unveiled the Redmi Note 7, the first smartphone that will be a part of the Redmi as a sub-brand, have 48-megapixel rear camera, and Snapdragon 660 SoC, all with rather impressive CNY999 ($150) price tag. So as you can see, the Redmi Note 7 is the third smartphone that boasts a 48 MP camera at the back. Right below the cameras there's the LED flash, and next to which there is a circular fingerprint sensor. The Note 7 includes a primary camera of 48MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture on the back, while the secondary camera includes a 5MP sensor for portrait shots. Another good news is that the 3.5mm headphone jack and infrared blaster are also retained. However, it's not clear if Xiaomi will be releasing the Redmi 7 or Redmi Note 7 at that event.
