Redmi Note 7 with 48MP dual-camera debuts in China

Redmi now a Xiaomi sub-brand
Redmi Note 7

The Redmi Note 7 has gone official, and the Redmi line is now a sub-brand under Xiaomi. It’s a similar move Xiaomi did with Pocophone. Does this mean the main Xiaomi brand will be more focused on flagship and high-end models like the Mi 8 and Mi MIX 3? We’ll have to see.

The Redmi Note line has always been the bang-for-buck, budget phablet family. Over the years though, just like each of Xiaomi’s products, both design and build, as well as specifications have moved up, making the device an even more no-brainer purchase. An example is last year’s impressive Redmi Note 5 and subsequent Redmi Note 6 Pro, two best-in-class efforts.

The Redmi Note 7 drives home the same value proposition, only now packing even better hardware, more premium build and longer warranty.

The budget phablet sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ display that comes with a minimal notch and protected by Gorilla Glass 5. It gets 2.5D glass on all sides and features an in-trend glossy gradient look on the back.

Underneath, the Redmi Note 7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, featuring up to 6GB of RAM and either 32GB of 64GB of storage. Storage is expandable via microSD with its hybrid dual-SIM tray. Interestingly, Xiaomi says the Snapdragon 660 clocks a higher 2.2GHz and claims it outperforms the Kirin 710 and standard Snapdragon 660 chips.

Redmi Note 7In the camera department, the phone boasts a 48MP f/1.8 main camera that uses Samsung’s GM1 ISOCELL sensor coupled with a secondary 5MP shooter for depth of field.

For selfies, it uses a 13MP front-facing shooter that comes with AI beautification features.

The Redmi Note 7 comes with a 4,000mAh battery that charges via USB Type-C. It supports Quick Charge 4 but Redmi is only bundling a standard 10W charger in the box.

Redmi has retained the much-loved 3.5mm headphone jack and infrared blaster on its latest device.

What’s interesting is that the Redmi Note 7 is covered by an 18-month warranty instead of the regular 12-month duration. Redmi also offers a 7-day no questions asked return policy and a 15-day one-to-one swap policy for factory defects.
