Xiaomi globally announced the Redmi Note 7 Pro in India on February 28. Two variants of the Redmi Note 7 Pro were launched - 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB - the latter was not readily available at launch though. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant of the Redmi Note 7 Pro will be available for buying in India online from April 10, while offline it can be purchased from April 17, Xiaomi said on Tuesday. Online, the 6GB/128GB Redmi Note 7 Pro variant will be available from Mi.com/in and Flipkart, while offline it will be available from Xiaomi’s Mi Home stores.
The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant of the Redmi Note 7 Pro will cost Rs 16,999 – the 4GB/64GB variant of the phone sells for Rs 13,999.
The main highlights of the Redmi Note 7 Pro are its gradient glass body and 48MP rear camera with Sony’s IMX586 image sensor which is a first for any smartphone at its low price (the Honor View 20, which uses the same sensor, sells for Rs 37,999 for some perspective).
In terms of core specs, the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a 6.3-inch LTPS 1080p+ display with a teardrop/waterdrop style notch - Xiaomi calls it a dot notch. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor paired with up to 6GB RAM and up to 12GB storage which is also expandable. On the front, the Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with a 13MP camera. The Redmi Note 7 Pro further packs a 4,000mAh battery and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 through USB Type-C.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro is available in a slew of gradient finishes including Nebula Red, Neptune Blue and Space Black - Xiaomi calls it aura design and it comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as on the back which is another first for any smartphone at its price point.
Considering how fast Xiaomi devices fly off the shelves, especially online, it won’t be surprising if something similar happens with the 6GB/128GB variant of the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Xiaomi isn’t saying if it is employing flash sales to sell the phone, but it has been some time since it has used the term ‘flash sales’ saying devices going out of stock is more a demand-supply issue (demand is more than supply) rather than Xiaomi offering less units for grabs.
