The Redmi Note 7 Pro was one of the sought after phones in the midrange market. The handset took the smartphone market by storm since its announcement. But many hopes were shattered when John Chen, Xiaomi’s Regional Director for Southeast Asia announced that the official international version of the device won’t make it to countries other than China and India. That was their product strategy back then. But now, it seems that strategy didn’t work out very well for them. They finally launched the Note 7 Pro in Nepal.
The most exciting part about the Redmi Note 7 Pro is its camera. The phone comes with the 48MP main camera, which was one of the very first devices to feature such a high megapixel sensor, even though it makes use of pixel binning. The main camera here uses Sony IMX586 sensor, which is the same sensor used on the premium OnePlus 7 Pro. There is also a 5MP depth sensor for portrait images.
Even in terms of design, the handset looks quite pleasing. The phone also features a premium glass back with a Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. The Gorilla Glass 5 protection extends to the front as well. The 6.3-inch LTPS display on the device is also encapsulated with that toughened glass to keep the display quite safe from cracks and scratches. The display on the device also features a tiny notch on the top.
When it comes to performance, there is a Snapdragon 675 chipset. It’s the same chipset used on more premium devices like Samsung Galaxy A70 and Vivo V15 Pro. In terms of memory, the phone comes in 4/64GB and 6/128GB formats.
Software-wise, Redmi Note 7 Pro boots on Android Pie out of the box with MIUI 10 on top. The device is also eligible for the Android Q update, which Xiaomi will release in Q1 of 2020. The handset also packs a generous 4000mAh battery promising a prolonged endurance.

Redmi Note 7 Pro Price & Availability
When it comes to price, the base variant (4/64GB) of the Redmi Note 7 Pro costs Rs. 24,999. Similarly, the higher-end model (6/128GB) will set you back at Rs. 29,999.
The pricing looks reasonable, but we were expecting the Redmi K20 series smartphone at this time. This reminds me of the Pocophone F1, which MI Nepal refused to bring to Nepal when we demanded them to bring it earlier, or at least stock it well on Daraz.
But since the Redmi Note 7 Pro is an amazing phone and is priced honestly, we would still recommend the phone if you have the budget of around Rs. 30,000. We just hope Mi Nepal stock it well and don’t repeat the same mistake as the Pocophone F1.
