Xiaomi has already launched Redmi Note 7 Pro in India and its China variant is expected to be slightly different from the recently launched Indian version.

The phone follows the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in offering a chipset and battery better than its price would suggest.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro features a 6.3-inch full HD+ waterdrop style notched display with a 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution. It's powered by a Snapdragon 632 with eight CPU cores, clocked at 1.8 GHz.

Another major highlight of the Redmi 7 is its 4,000mAh battery and Xiaomi claims this results in standby of 400 hours. There is also a MicroSD card slot for further expanding the storage on this device.

The smartphone comes with dual rear camera with a 48-megapixel primary sensor with LED Flash, f/1.79 aperture, Sony IMX586 sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. There is also Face Unlock feature as well as a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for security objective. As for the front-facing camera, there is an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies. Whereas, the 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant is priced at 799 Yuan (approximately Rs. 8,000) and the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant is priced at 999 Yuan (approximately Rs. 10,000). While there is no official word on the launch of the Redmi 7 in India, we wouldn't be surprised if the company launches it here in the next couple of months. Alongside the Redmi 7, Xiaomi at its event announced the China variant of the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Notably, the phone will go on sale in China starting March 26, and its first sale round has been scheduled at 10am local time. The phone will be offered in the lone 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage configuration. Xiaomi did not reveal whether the camera specs of the Redmi 7 are similar to the Indian variant of Redmi Note 7, but the on-paper specs suggest that they're the same. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, USB, Infrared (IR) blaster, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
