Redmi CEO polls fans on the most-desired Redmi Note 7 Pro upgrades
CEO of the Redmi brand, Lu Weibing, has posted a poll on Weibo asking fans what are the two most important upgrades that the Redmi Note 7 Pro should bring. The poll ends in two days or so, but the winners already seem clear.
By far the most popular option (with nearly 35%) is faster chipset. And if rumors are true, people will get what they asked for – the Pro is said to be among the first phones with the Snapdragon 675.
The runner up asks for improvements to the 48MP camera. The Pro will use the IMX586 sensor, rather than the Samsung one of the regular, but it's unclear if that one's actually better or not. At least it will probably get 4K video recording - the Snapdragon 660 can already support it, so it's a product strategy decision rather than one dictated by hardware capabilities.
In third is the “more storage” option and that’s quite possible. A rumor from yesterday claimed the Redmi Note 7 Pro will have a up to 128GB storage. The Pro model should come with 6GB of RAM (the smaller options will be dropped). People don’t sound too excited about 8GB of RAM, anyway.
The Redmi Note 7 ranges in price from CNY 1,000 to 1,4000 ($150-$210). The Pro model will be pricier, maybe starting at CNY 1,600 ($240) for the 6/64GB version.
