Xiaomi launched its new Redmi Note 7 yesterday. The device has been hailed for its impressive design, performance, cameras, and most of all, the insane value it offers. Xiaomi phones have a reputation for providing amazing bang for your buck, and the Redmi Note 7 manages to take that up a notch. Interestingly, that may not be how the party ends.

According to reports, Redmi will release another device soon, a Redmi Note 7 Pro, which will be a souped-up version of the just-launched Redmi Note 7. The device is expected to feature Sony’s 48 MP IMX586 sensor. For those wondering how the IMX586 is a better sensor than the Samsung GM1 on the Note 7—since both are 48 MP sensors—it’s because the IMX586 shoots in true 48 MP while the GM1 likely doesn’t. 

While Samsung’s documents don’t say anything about that, it’s evidenced by that fact that the ISP on the Note 7’s Snapdragon 660 doesn’t offer support for sensors above 25 MP. In any case, we’ve seen the IMX586 perform impressively on devices like the Honor V20. ISP capabilities considered, it’s likely that the touted Note 7 Pro will feature a more powerful SoC—likely the new Snapdragon 675 as initial rumors claimed, or perhaps the Snapdragon 710.

The existence of a Note 7 Pro is yet to be confirmed by reliable channels, though, and you’d do well to take all of this with a pinch of salt.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
