Last week saw the launch of the Redmi Note 7 smartphone in China. Although the smartphone is a much-awaited one in global markets, rumours about Redmi Note 7 Pro have already started circulating online. We should mention that last week when Xiaomi launched Redmi Note 7, which is the first device under its Redmi sub-brand, it also announced that Redmi Note 7 Pro will be launched next month.
The upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro will reportedly be powered by the Snapdragon 675 processor and much like Redmi Note 7, the smartphone will sport a 48MP primary camera. Interestingly, although there’s still a month to go for the smartphone’s launch, its alleged pricing has been revealed via Chinese social networking platform Weibo. But before we get to that, we should first mention the other specifications of the upcoming device that have surfaced on the same platform.
A teaser was posted by Redmi by Xiaomi on Weibo talking about the Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone. According to the video, Redmi Note 7 will sport a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor on its back panel. It is worth noticing that Redmi Note 7 that was launched last week also features a 48MP camera but uses the Samsung ISOCELL GM1 sensor instead. The teaser also confirms that the smartphone will be launched next month, sometime around the Chinese New Year.
These were the details of the smartphone that have been revealed officially by the company. However, we have learnt more via the platform. A tipster on Weibo has said that Redmi Note 7 Pro will be one among the first smartphones to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 SoC. This will be an upgrade to the processor we have seen on Redmi Note 7 – Snapdragon 660 SoC.
Now, let’s talk about the pricing details of the device that have surfaced online. According to another tipster on Weibo, Redmi Note 7 Pro will bear a price tag of CNY 1,499, which on conversion becomes approximately Rs 15,800. We should mention that last week, Redmi Note 7 was launched in three variants. While the base model of the device, that has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage was priced at CNY 999, the 4GBRAM/64GB storage model cost CNY 1,199, the most high-end variant – with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage – came with a price tag of CNY 1,399.
