Redmi Note 7 Pro to be one of the first with the new Snapdragon 675

Ro, 16 January 2019

After the successful launch of the Redmi Note 7 the other day, Xiaomi is planning to release a more powerful Pro version too. The new Redmi Note 7 Pro is expected to hit the streets sometime February as per the initial announcement by Redmi.

The new information, however, comes from the debris of Weibo revealing some key specs. For starters, the phone will have a 48MP camera, just like the regular Note 7, but this time with a Sony IMX 586 sensor. The Note 7, on the other hand, uses a Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor. More importantly, though, the Pro variant will sport Qualcomm's brand new Snapdragon 675 chipset.

The SoC is expected to be slightly more powerful than the Snapdragon 710 but in order to keep the cost low, Qualcomm has slapped a slower GPU, less capable ISP and has used a more cost-effective 11nm manufacturing process.

And as for pricing, it's probably going to fall in the CNY 1,399 - 1,499 range, which translates into around $205 to $220. That's at least what the guys over at Weibo are saying.

Yep. I paused a 16:9 video on my note 6 pro, and measured it, turns out you only get 5.5 inches usable out of 6.26" screen space. Next thing you know it, you'll be getting a horrifying 21:9, believe me. Manufacturers will follow any trend, no matter ...

Quite same with SnD 710 and SnD 670 variant with different ISP chip to keep it low-cost.
