Yes, your eyes are alright, Xiaomi really posted an upside-down photo of Lei Jun and Manu Kumar Jain posing with the Redmi Note 7. That is the announcement of the phone arrival in India without actually revealing any dates or pricing. What the tweet said was only the head-turner is coming and disruption is guaranteed.
The Redmi Note 7 is a follow-up of the Redmi Note 6 Pro and the first Redmi phone after the sub-brand separated from Xiaomi. It has a 48 MP camera with a Samsung sensor and a tall notched 6.3 display. The device is powered by Snapdragon 660 and has a 4,000 mAh battery that has Quick Charge 4. Currently, it is available only in China and is shipped with a 10W charger, but if you want the 18W block, you have to pay just CNY10 (no more than $1,50) more.
The price of the phone starts at CNY999 and goes up to CNY1,399 (between $150 and $210). If Xiaomi keeps the cost of the Redmi Note 7, we expect to see the 3/32 GB version for no more than INR9,999, while the 6/64 GB variant will cost around INR13,999. We also have to wait and see if all three colors – Blue, Twilight Gold, and Black, will be available in India.
