Xiaomi Redmi 7 specs leaked on TENAA
The successor of the Xiaomi Redmi 6 is close to being officially announced as it already got the TENAA certification in China. Following the successful release of the Redmi Note 7 / Pro models, Xiaomi is now looking to update the entry-level lineup with a Remdi 7 handheld that borrows quite a few features from the more expensive Redmi Note series.
Besides the unknown octa-core SOC and the exact megapixels for the rear cameras, TENNA informs that the Redmi 7 will come with a bigger 6.26-inch screen with 1520 x 720 resolution that has thin bezels like the ones on the Redmi 7 models. No mention of any notch, but, what we can make out from the provided front image, the entry-level model could be getting a water drop notch of its own. This model is also integrating 3 cameras in total, so a selfie cam and a rear dual-cam setup. Additionally, it looks like the selfie is featuring an 8 MP sensor, and there will be a fingerprint sensor on the back.
Another feature borrowed from the Redmi Note 7 series is the bigger 3,900 mAh battery. As far as RAM and storage are concerned, there will be three versions: 2 GB RAM / 16 GB storage, 3 GB RAM / 32 GB storage and 4 GB RAM / 64 GB storage. It will be running Android 9 out of the box and will come in color options such as black, red, blue, pink, white, green, purple, and gray (gradients also included, as seen in the rear side picture provided by TENAA).
Rumor has it that the Redmi 7 could also feature a front and rear glass finish similar to that found on the Redmi Note 7, although this is probably a bit too much for an entry-level model with an MSRP lower than US$200, yet Xiaomi might at least add improved plastic materials.
