Redmi’s latest iteration in its budget segment is the Redmi 7, which was launched in China last month. And according to some recent leaks and reports, the Chinese brand has plans to bring the Redmi 7 smartphone to the Indian markets as well. The Redmi 7 is the successor of the Redmi 6 and it is powered by the Snapdragon 632 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and it packs a 4,000mAh battery.
The Redmi 7 also sports a waterdrop-notch on the display while its back has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Furthermore, the leaks also indicate that another Redmi smartphone, the Redmi Y3 could also be launched in the Indian markets in the coming months along with the Redmi 7A.
Xiaomi recently launched its Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro smartphones in India – both of which were priced in the budget segment. The company also recently launched its Redmi Go handset that was aimed at first time Android users. And now Redmi 7 and the Redmi 7A may also be priced in the budget segment, much like their predecessors Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A. This makes perfect sense as Xiaomi’s smartphones that are priced slightly higher have failed to impress its target audience even if they pack good specifications.
The leaks were tipped by a tipster named Ishan Agarwal on Twitter and according to him the device might soon be launched in India. Seeing that India is an important market for the Chinese smartphone company, the news might be true and we may get to see the release of the device in the coming weeks. According to the tipster, the Redmi Y3 will also be launched in India as soon as next month alongside another device with the model number of C3F which could be the Redmi 7A.
Although the Redmi Y3 has not been launched yet, but earlier it was spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance website running on Android Pie. Also, the Redmi 7A too was spotted on the 3C certification website on China last year in December but till now, the Redmi 7A has not been launched.
On the other hand, the Redmi 7 was launched in China last month with the price tag of CNY 699 (approximately Rs 7,100) for the 2GB RAM/16GB storage variant and CNY 799 (approximately Rs 8,200) for the 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant. The top-end variant of the Redmi 7 with 4GB RAM/64GB storage costs CNY 999 (approximately Rs 10,200). The smartphones are expected to be priced similarly when they are launched in India.
Although the exact launch dates of the devices are currently not known, we could see them getting unveiled in the Indian market in the next couple of months.
