Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro May Launch As Redmi Note 7 In India On February 28

Written By Tech Desk | Mumbai | Published:

Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi had announced in January that it will launch a more potent variant of the Redmi Note 7, aka the Redmi Note 7 Pro, in China after the Spring Festival (February 5). In line with the announcement, Redmi is now gearing to launch the Redmi Note 7 Pro (in China) next week – the same week that Xiaomi is gearing to launch the Redmi Note 7 in India. All this raises the possibility that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro may launch as the Redmi Note 7 in India on February 28. Of course, it’s all speculative for now, but then, you never know. 

The Redmi Note 7 Pro is expected to look and feel exactly like the Redmi Note 7 but it will pack slightly better hardware. Especially in the camera department. The Redmi Note 7 Pro will also sport a 48MP primary rear camera like the Redmi Note 7, but it will come with a better sensor. While the Redmi Note 7 uses a Samsung-sourced GM1 sensor, the Redmi Note 7 Pro will come with Sony’s IMX586 – the same sensor that is also found in the Honor View 20. 

The Redmi Note 7 was apparently supposed to come with the Sony IMX586 but instead Redmi had to go with the Samsung GM1 due to supply constraints. 

The Redmi Note 7 is also said to be powered by an updated chipset – a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 over the Redmi Note 7’s Snapdragon 660. 

The Redmi Note 7 is finally coming to India on February 28 and it will be a Flipkart-exclusive. The online retail website has already started teasing the Redmi Note 7 on its platform through a dedicated landing page, ahead of its scheduled launch. The Redmi Note 7, like all Xiaomi phones, should be also available for buying from the company’s online store, as well as from offline channels like Mi Home stores. 

While it isn’t exactly clear if Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 7 Pro as the Redmi Note 7 in India, February 28 isn’t that far off, so we will know soon enough.
