Xiaomi cuts prices of four smartphones, including Redmi Note 6 in India

Xiaomi cuts prices of four smartphones, including Redmi Note 6 in India

Now, obviously, performance-wise the Redmi Note 7 can't compete with the Snapdragon 855 flagships that are coming soon, but besides that, there's very little you're missing by paying a fifth of the price of a premium phone.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 450 nits brightness, 84 percent NTSC colour gamut. It's nearly unbelievable how good affordable smartphones are now.

Just a few months ago, Xiaomi unveiled its latest Redmi Note series smartphone called the Redmi Note 6 Pro (review) in Thailand.

Under the hood is the 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor coupled with Kryo 260 CPU and Adreno 512 GPU. More expensive models with 4 and 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage will be offered, too. Whichever memory combination you pick, there is still support for microSD memory cards (although you will need to let go of the second SIM slot).




Xiaomi has recently announced the launch of the Redmi Note 7 which comes equipped with a 48MP image sensor in the rear starting from the price of RMB999 (~RM603) for the 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage, RMB1199 (~RM724) for 4GB + 64GB and RMB1399 (~RM844) for the 6GB + 64GB variant. This one has also got the 5MP AI selfie camera. The phone packs a massive 4,000mAh battery that can get you an entire day on charge.

Notably, the Redmi Note 7 was recently spotted on the benchmarking website Geekbench.

Redmi Note 7 marks Xiaomi's departure from the metal unibody design.

Will the camera sensor be the only difference between the two phones? While the Honor View 20 came with a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, the Redmi Note 7 sports 48MP Samsung GM1 sensor. Right below the cameras there's the LED flash, and next to which there is a circular fingerprint sensor. Bin's version has a gradient pink and purple finish, while Jun's photo shows a blue gradient background, matching the phone in the frame. Unlike many USA-based phones that've chose to abandon the ways of the past, this device has an IR-blaster, giving it control over your television should you want it. The phone was benchmarked running Android 9 Pie.
