The Redmi Note 7 Pro redefines value for money - Snapdragon 675, 48 MP Sony IMX586, US$200
The Redmi Note 7 was launched back in January and it offered an impressive performance to price ratio. Following the Note 7’s launch, it was revealed that Xiaomi planned on releasing a Pro model that would completely alter public perspective on the definition of “value for money”. Most Xiaomi fans have waited with bated breath for that device, and can now rest easy, as the company, today, finally launched it.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ display. It is an LCD panel, of course, and there’s a waterdrop notch at the top housing the selfie camera. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 675, a mid-range SoC that delivers performance on par with 2017’s flagship Snapdragon 835.
The rear of the Note 7 Pro houses a dual camera system: A 48 MP Sony IMX586 (f/1.79)—the same sensor used on flagships like the Mi 9 and Honor View 20—and a 5 MP secondary sensor. There’s support for 4K video recording at 30 fps, with Electronic Image Stabilization aiding with shakes and jitters. There’s also a fingerprint sensor on the back of the Note 7 Pro. The selfie camera is a 13 MP unit.
Supplying the Note 7 Pro with juice is a 4000 mAh battery. There’s support for Qualcomm’s 18 W Quick Charge 4 but prospective buyers will have to buy a third-party charging brick to get that. The Note 7 Pro runs on the Android Pie-based MIUI 10.
It goes on sale in India on March 13. The 4/64 GB model will set buyers back Rs 13,999 (US200), while the 6/128 GB SKU has an MSRP of Rs 16,999 (US$240).
