Apparently the same phone as the global variant of the Redmi Note 7, the Redmi Note 7S will be available for purchase in India later this week. The starting price of this Qualcomm Snapdragon 660-powered handset is around US$158 for the 3/32 GB variant. The 4/64 GB model can be acquired for about US$187.

With each new device, Xiaomi and its sub-brand Redmi are pushing the "bang for the buck" factor of their handsets higher, without resorting to radical cuts in terms of build quality. In many markets, the Redmi Note 7 and the more powerful — and more expensive, obviously — Redmi Note 7 Pro are currently some of the best choices in the mid-range sector. Now, India is receiving the Note 7 under a different name.

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, the Redmi Note 7S is apparently the same handset as the global variant of the Redmi Note 7. Its 6.3-inch full HD+ display comes with a waterdrop notch. With a 13 MP selfie shooter and a 48 + 5 MP main camera on the back, the Redmi Note 7S is an excellent budget solution for those into mobile photography.

In addition to the above, we should also mention USB Type-C connectivity and the 4,000 mAh battery with 18 W fast charging, the presence of the traditional 3.5 mm audio jack, the rear-mounted fingerprint reader, the IR blaster, and the water-resistant P2i coating. The handset runs Android 9.0 Pie-based firmware with MIUI 10 on top.

These are the prices of the two memory/storage combinations that will be available for purchase in India starting on May 23: INR₹10,999 (about US$158) for the 3/32 GB model and INR₹12,999 (roughly US$187) for the 4/64 GB variant. Those interested will be able to place their orders via Flipkart, Xiaomi's website, and various Mi retailers.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
