The Xiaomi Redmi 7 series would probably launch early next year. Like its predecessor Redmi 6 series, the range will reportedly have three different models – Xiaomi Redmi 7A, Redmi 7 and Redmi 7 Pro. The smartphones in Xiaomi’s Redmi 7 series would have different RAM variants and their price segment is expected to be similar to that of the Redmi 6 range.
To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 costed Rs 7,999 for 32GB storage and Rs 9,499 for 64GB storage. The Redmi 6A was priced at Rs 5,999 and Rs 6,999 for 16GB and 32GB storage respectively. And lastly, the 3GB RAM model of Redmi 6 Pro had a price tag of Rs 10,999 while the 4GB RAM variant was priced at Rs 12,999.
According to the current speculations, we can expect Xiaomi’s Redmi 7 series to be priced similarly, but only time will tell if this is true. However, if smartphones the said series will be available in the budget and entry-level segment, Xiaomi can expect to see a good demand in the market. Since Xiaomi is only popular in these segments of the Indian smartphone market, the speculated pricing may not be wrong.
The smartphone series has been spotted by Nashville Chatter on China’s Certificate or the 3C certification website. The series has reportedly passed the certification and it has been revealed that the smartphones will have a 5V/2A(10W) fast charging.
The listing also states that there are three models of Xiaomi Redmi 7 series that will be launched. They are M1901F7E, M1901F7T, M1901F7C. To recall, smartphones in Xiaomi’s Redmi 6 series came with model numbers prefixed with M18. So there is a high chance that the three model numbers represent the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 7A, Redmi 7, Redmi 7 Pro.
Besides fast charging, Xiaomi’s Redmi 7 series smartphones are expected to come with Face Unlock, expandable storage and dual VoLTE support.
In the budget and the entry-level segments, Xiaomi’s Redmi 7 series will be competing from smartphones from Asus, Nokia and Oppo’s sub-brand Realme. Although Xiaomi currently dominates this segment, the competition is getting tougher by the day with smartphone makers packing as many high-end features in their affordable devices as possible.
