It’s January 10, and the Xiaomi event that we told you about has ended. At the event, Xiaomi launched their new entry-level smartphone, the Redmi Note 7. Highlighted by its 48MP rear camera and the SD660, the smartphone really looks compelling at its price.
Starting off with the cameras, it gets a 13MP selfie shooter, while the back features a dual camera setup. The first of which is a 48MP image sensor with an f/1.8 lens aided by a secondary 5MP camera. An LED flash sits right below the rear cameras.
Furthermore, the 48MP (Samsung GM1, 0.8-micron pixels) is capable of pixel-binning for better shots. With this, it throws out images equivalent to 12MP photos with a larger 1.6-micron pixel. The secondary camera helps with depth information.
Apart from the cameras the Redmi Note 7 possess a 6.3-inch FHD+ (19.5:9 aspect ratio) display with a water drop notch. It comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 chipset, paired with 3/4/6GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage.
The phone gets a 4000mAh battery which accepts 18W fast charging through a USB-C port. It also gets a headphone jack and an IR blaster. The Redmi Note 7 starts at $150 for the 3/32GB, $180 for the 4/64GB and $200 for the 6/64GB version.
Availability starts from China, with other markets following soon after. This is the first phone in the Redmi series as highlighted by their “Redmi by Xiaomi” tag on the packing and phone itself. This should help the company focus more on e-commerce and cost efficiency, while Xiaomi gets to focus on physical retailers and mid to high-end smartphones.
