New Delhi: A day after Samsung launched its budget series killer M30, Xiaomi launched two phones, the much-anticipated Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro on Thursday. The prices are as follows:
Redmi Note 7 Pro
4GB RAM/64GB storage = Rs 13,999
6GB RAM/128GB storage = Rs 16,999
Redmi Note 7
3GB RAM/32GB storage = Rs 9,999
4GB RAM/64GB storage = Rs 11,999
As reported earlier, the highlight of Redmi Note 7 Pro is a mammoth 48MP rear camera sensor with f/1.79 aperture. Xiaomi’s Anuj Sharma explained that the big sensor will allow better night mode photographs. The phone by default will compress the 48-MP output to 12-MP images and save space as one 48-MP photograph will take around 15MB of storage. The 48-MP mode can be manually selected, informed Sharma.
It is powered by Snapdragon 675 whose performance is comparable to phones with Snapdragon 710 processor, said Sharma.
Specs include a 19:5:9 waterdrop notched 6.3-inch full-HD+ LTPS display protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It is paired with up to 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. It has a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4 support.
Redmi Note 7 Pro has 2.5D curved glass all around making it all-glass body phone. It has a gradient finish and will be available in funky colours such as Onyx Black, Ruby Red, and Sapphire Blue.
The cheaper Redmi Note 7 comes with Snapdragon 660 processor and 12MP-5MP dual camera setup. It also has a 4000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4 support.
Both phones are splash-proof, not waterproof. Both have face unlock.
Redmi Note 7 will go on sale on March 6 and Redmi Note 7 Pro on March 13. Both phones will be available on Mi.com, Flipkart, and Mi Homes. Launch offers from Airtel available.
Xiaomi also launched Mi Sports Bluetooth Earphones Basic priced at Rs 1,499 during the event.
