Xiaomi’s next phone the Redmi Note 7 has been the most talked about phone in India ever since the company announced the phone will house a massive 48MP rear camera. The banter grew louder when it was announced that the phone would be priced in the sub-15K category. The phone is already launched in China and now the company has announced that the phone will finally be launched in India. The launch date of the phone is kept as 28th February.
The company had been teasing the phone online for weeks now, and earlier through a tweet it announced the launch date of the phone. The registration process for purchasing tickets for the launch event of the phone is already complete.
The phone is already launched in China and is currently selling well in the Chinese market. The Note 7 wins on many fronts that makes this smartphone worth buying. It packs a good mid-range hardware, has an attractive design aspect and is priced very competitively like most of the Xiaomi phones before it. Earlier it was reported that the company has sold more than 1 million units in the Chinese market in just three weeks after its launch. Those numbers show just how popular the phone is, and seeing Xiaomi customer base in India the numbers are most likely to increase.
The official price of the phone in India is not yet revealed, but in China the phone is selling for CNY 999(approx. Rs 10,300) for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant. The highest variant of the Note 7 with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage is priced at CNY 1,399 (approx. Rs 14,500). The prices of other variants of the phone were also covered in our earlier report.

Redmi Note 7 comes with a 6.3-inch full HD+ (1080 x 2340 pixels) with Gorilla Glass 5 on top. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core CPU and has 6 gigs of RAM with 64GB internal storage. It comes with 4,000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4 support. However, the main attraction of the phone is its camera setup. It has a dual rear camera setup of a 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5-megapixel sensor while the front camera is a 13-megapixel sensor. As far as the colour options are concerened it comes in – Fantasy Blue, Bright Black, Red (optional) and Twilight Gold.
The current market favourite in the mid-range smartphone segment is the Samsung’s Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20. If Redmi Note 7 won’t be able to take over the market from them then it surely will try to give Samsung a tough competition.
