Just as when the Redmi Note 7 was getting enough attention from the mid-range market, Xiaomi’s sub-brand, Redmi has yet again arrived with its new mid-ranger, the Redmi Note 7 Pro. This time the phone gets Snapdragon 675 chipset, a 48MP rear camera, and an impressive 4,000mAh battery.
Being an upgrade to the Redmi Note 7, the Pro variant comes with slight spec bumps. There’s Snapdragon 675 octa-core chipset that bears a clock speed of 2GHz and has Adreno 612 GPU. The processor goes well with two memory setups: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. Both have a microSD card slot.
Camera wise, its same as the Redmi Note 7 — a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with Quad-Bayer filter used for delivering 12MP images with 1.2um pixel size and real-time HDR. The main sensor pairs with 5MP depth sensor used for AI recognition and portrait mode shots. For selfies, you’ll get the same 13MP sensor cramped in the notch.
Aesthetically the phone’s pretty similar to its older model. It has a 6.3-inch IPS LCD screen protected with Gorilla Glass 5. The battery also remains the same 4,000mAh capacity but with QuickCharge 4 support. However, you still get the 10W charging adapter out of the box. The immaculate glass back(protected with Gorilla Glass 5) of the phone hosts a fingerprint scanner as well.
For pricing, you know it’s Xiaomi, so should be within your budget. The 4/64GB variant will have a price tag of INR. 13,999, while the beefier 6/128GB variant will cost you INR. 16,999 — 3,000 more. Nonetheless, both variants will be available in Neptune Blue, Space Black, and Nebula Red color options.
As for Nepal, there’s no word about its availability. If it does — which it should — the base variant could start at NRs. 28-30,000.
