We already saw the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Now, the only thing that’s missing to complete the trifecta is the standard Redmi 7. And thanks to this hands-on video that was published early, we take a full detailed look at this upcoming device.
The hands-on video shows the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 in all its glory. The design is very similar to its bigger brothers. It will have a small notch on the top, and a shiny back panel with a gradient design. A fingerprint scanner can be also found on the back.
Its overall size and weight shall also be the same as it packs a 6.26-inch display and a generous 4,000mAh battery. However, the screen panel has a dialed-down resolution of 1520 x 720 pixels instead of an FHD+ one.
As a further proof that it’s indeed the more affordable option, the company also downgraded the processor to a Snapdragon 632 chipset, which is actually an acceptable compromise. It will be aided with 3GB of RAM and 64GB, although it’s also expected to come with 2GB/16GB, 3GB/32GB, and 4GB/64GB options.
There’s going to be an 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front, while on the back we have two shooters that are being led by a 12-megapixel primary sensor. On the downside, it still uses a microUSB port instead of Type-C
The official pricing and availability for the device are yet to be announced, however, it’s expected that the base model will retail for CNY900 (~Php6,900). Considering that the Redmi Note 7 Pro has just come out, we might still have to wait for a couple more weeks before Redmi takes the wraps off on this one.
