The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 has been officially introduced. This the smartphone that marks Redmi’s marginal separation from Xiaomi.
A lot of teasers have been posted before its official arrival. For one, the XIaomi Redmi Note 7 has been anticipated to come with a 48-megapixel primary camera, and Xiaomi did deliver.
It can take 48 million 0.8-micron pictures in good-lighting scenarios for sharper images. But in low-light instances, adjacent pixels are combined to form a single 1.6-micron pixel, which can accommodate more light for better fidelity.
The 48-megapixel sensor is combined with a 5-megapixel camera for depth-sensing. While on the front we have a 13-megapixel shooter for selfies. A combo that’s identical to the Huawei Nova 4.
Other than that, the Redmi Note 7 feels like your top-tier midrange smartphone. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, which can be bundled with 3GB/32GB up to 6GB/64GB of RAM and storage configuration.
There’s a large 4,000mAh battery on the inside, and a 6.3-inch FHD+ screen on the front. The waterdrop notch, as well as its shiny back panel, is reminiscent to Xiaomi’s recent release, the Mi Play.
