It looks like March is going to be the month of low-end and midrange smartphones. A lot of budget-friendly devices are expected to come out in the coming weeks, including the new Xiaomi Redmi 7.
Lu Weibing, a Xiaomi executive, confirmed the Xiaomi Redmi 7 release date via a post on his personal Weibo account. The event will be happening in Beijing, China on March 18, which will also be the stage for the launch of the Redmi Note 7 on the said country.
The Redmi 7 is the missing piece of the trifecta that will complete the sub-brand’s first line-up. It will join the Redmi Note 7 Pro, the aforementioned Redmi Note 7, and the more affordable Redmi Go on filling in Redmi’s initial portfolio.
There are little known facts about this device. But thanks to a hands-on video that was previously leaked, we were able to confirm that the Xiaomi Redmi 7 will sport a 6.26-inch HD+ screen and a 4,000mAh battery.
