Redmi 7 arrives with Snapdragon 632 for $105
Redmi 7 is official, becoming the most affordable phone in the newly separated sub-brand. The phone follows the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in offering a chipset and battery better than its price would suggest.
The Redmi 7 has a 6.26” LCD panel of HD+ resolution. It's powered by a Snapdragon 632 with eight CPU cores, clocked at 1.8 GHz. The dual camera on the back is 12 MP + 2 MP, with the main shooter having a 1/2.9” sensor size, just like the 2017 flagship Xiaomi Mi 6. The selfie snapper does 8 MP stills.
There are three memory combos - 2/16 GB, 3/32 GB, and 4/64 GB. Prices are respectively CNY699 ($105/€92), CNY799 ($120/€105), and CNY999 ($150/€130).
The phone packs an ample 4,000 mAh battery with standard 10W charging, plenty of AI features and MIUI 10, based on Android Pie out of the box. First flash sale is scheduled for March 26.
The event in Beijing also saw the official release of the Redmi Note 7 Pro in its home market. It is the very same Snapdragon 675-powered device with 48 MP camera and Sony IMX586 sensor that was already introduced on the last day of February in New Delhi.
