Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 gets Bluetooth certification ahead of launch

With the Redmi Note 7 Xiaomi has perhaps ushered in a new category A mid-ranger with an entry-level price

The 3GB RAM variant will now be priced at Rs 9,999, down from its launch price of Rs 11,499, and the 4GB RAM version will cost Rs 11,999 instead of Rs 13,499. Users also have the option to expand the storage up to 256 GB via microSD card.

The new Redmi Note 7 comes with a 48-megapixel rear primary camera (Samsung GM1 sensor) which has an aperture of f/1.8 and another 5-megapixel for depth-sensing. The center placed teardrop notch on the screen houses a 13-megapixel camera for selfies. The battery is 4000 mAh.

Notably, the Redmi Note 7 was recently spotted on the benchmarking website Geekbench. It seems like Xiaomi is holding this one back until the Chinese New Year, but we can likely expect a horsepower upgrade as well.

-The Redmi Note 7 is the first Note phone from Xiaomi to come with a waterdrop notch display.

Redmi Note 7 marks Xiaomi's departure from the metal unibody design. The Redmi Note 7 comes with two cameras on the back which are placed in a vertical fashion.

The fingerprint sensor at the back is easily reachable, while the dual cameras are stacked vertically. It's accompanied by a 5 MP camera which is used when you take photos in Portrait Mode.

For the first time in smartphone history, a budget phone will feature a 48-megapixel camera. So far, this Qualcomm processor has powered only phones that are slighlt higher prices like the Vivo V11 Pro which retails for Rs 25,990 in India. There's also a 7-day no questions asked return policy and a 15-day one to one swap policy for factory defects.

But the best thing about the phone has to be the price, starting at just 999 yuan (~$147) for the 3GB/32GB model. Sadly, Xiaomi did not launch the Note 7 with 128GB of internal storage.

Talking about the innards, the Redmi Note 7 comes with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 SoC running the show, and, it is offered in three memory configurations - 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage, 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage, and 6 GB RAM + 64 GB storage. Xiaomi also appointed William Lu, who earlier served as President & CEO of cash-strapped Gionee, as the vice president of Xiaomi Group and the general manager of Redmi in China.
