Xiaomi is a brand known to deliver bang for the buck products, and it has been doing so for quite some time now. The smartphone maker has become the biggest company in terms of mobile shipments in India. This week, the launch of Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro will further bolster the company’s performance in the country.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro
The star of the show was undoubtedly the Redmi Note 7 Pro, which has not been announced anywhere in the world except for India. The phone redefines what a budget smartphone is capable of. It features a 48 MP primary camera which is not just an ordinary but the Sony IMX586 sensor. This is something that flagship phones like the Honor View 20 costing more than Rs 35,000 are getting.
In the specs department, the phone happens to have a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D curved glass. On the back of the device, we see a vertical dual-rear camera setup and a fingerprint sensor.
As we mentioned earlier, the phone has a dual rear camera system equipped with a 48MP Samsung IMX586 sensor and 5 MP secondary sensor, which can be used for portrait shots. The phone delivers 4K recording @ 30 fps, which is a first for the device.
Powering the device is a Snapdragon 675 chipset, which is the first time that the SoC has made an appearance in the country. The chipset is built on the 11 nm FinFET manufacturing process. It uses the Kryo 460 CPU that gives radically better performance than the earlier Redmi Note 6 Pro.
Inside the phone, we can find a 4,000 mAh battery that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 for faster-charging speeds. The phone also has a headphone jack and for the first time in a Redmi smartphone, there is now a type-C charging port.
The phone has been announced at an extremely budget price of Rs 13,999 for the 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage variant. The Redmi Note 7 Pro also happens to runs on MIUI 10, which is based on Android Pie out of the box. The device already has got the enhanced MIUI system optimization protocols, which will provide you with 10 percent faster system responsiveness or so as Xiaomi claims.
The Redmi Note 7
The Redmi Note 7 is nearly the same except for a lower chipset, RAM and storage options and a weaker camera. It starts at even more affordable Rs 9,999, for the 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage variant. The phone will go on sale on March 7 and the Note 7 Pro on 13 March.
With both of these being rather attractive smartphones, which one of these two is you going to upgrade to? Whatever is your choice, remember to sell your used smartphone on Cashify before making the jump!
