Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 smartphone will launch in India today. It is also being reported that the company might launch its Redmi Note 7 Pro. The launch event will commence at 11:30 am IST and the company will be live streaming the event on its official YouTube channel and website.
To recall, the company initially launched the Redmi Note 7 in China last month. The company during the launch also announced that Redmi just like Poco will now be a sub-brand of Xiaomi. Smartphones released under the new Redmi by Xiaomi brand will be budget devices, whereas, Mi will focus on releasing premium smartphones like the Mi Mix 3.
A new leak by tipster Ishan Agarwal suggests that the Indian variant of the Redmi Note 7 won’t feature a 48MP sensor on the back like its Chinese counterpart. Instead, the company will launch the Redmi Note 7 Pro sporting a 48MP sensor on the back.
The Redmi Note 7 might launch in Black, Blue and Red colour options in India, whereas, the Redmi Note 7 Pro might be launched in Black, Gradient Blue and Gradient Red colour options.
Redmi Note 7 in China starts at Yuan 999 (approximately Rs 10,500) for the 3GB RAM/32GB storage, Yuan 1,199 (approximately Rs 12,400) for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage and Yuan 1,399 (approximately Rs 14,500) for 6GB RAM/64GB storage. The device is expected to be priced similarly in India and is expected to start at Rs 9,999.
If the company launches the Redmi Note 7 Pro along with the device, it is expected to be priced between Rs 13,000 to Rs 15,000 for the base variant.
