Xiaomi Redmi Note 7-series: Price, specifications and features
Xiaomi launched three smartphones in the Redmi Note 7 series – the affordable Redmi Note 7 starting at Rs 9,999, the Redmi Note 7 Pro starting at Rs 13,999, and the recently launched Redmi Note 7s starting at Rs 10,999. The Redmi Note 7 comes with a primary 12-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual camera setup and Snapdragon 660 SoC. And as users have been demanding for 48-megapixel camera phone, the company will discontinue the Redmi Note 7, and will sell the Note 7s and Note 7 Pro.
Talking about specifications and features of Redmi Note 7s and Redmi Note 7 Pro, they are pretty identical. You get a 6.3-inch full HD+ display with a dot notch on top. The notch houses a 13-megapixel selfie snapper and other sensors. Under the hood, the Redmi Note 7s is powered by a Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with 3GB / 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB storage. The Note 7 Pro, on the other hand, comes with Snapdragon 675 SoC paired with 4GB / 6GB RAM and 64GB / 128GB storage options.
At the back, both smartphones come with dual cameras – 48-megapixel + 5-megapixel. There is, however, a small catch, the Redmi Note 7s comes with Samsung’s ISOCELL GM1 sensor, whereas the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with Sony IMX586 Sensor. To keep things ticking, both smartphones come with a 4,000mAh battery and 18W fast charging support over USB Type-C.
