Xiaomi is working on several smartphones to launch in 2019. The year is expected to start with the 48MP phone that the company executive teased a weeks ago. The 48MP phone has likely got a name now and could be called Redmi 2 Pro. Alongside this, the company is also working on the Redmi 7 series which include three phones — Redmi 7, Redmi 7A and Redmi 7 Pro. Out of the three phones, the Redmi 7 Pro is going to be the most interesting one. Beginning this week, the Redmi 7 Pro made its way to the TENNA benchmarking site and now some of the real-life pictures of the phone have surfaced online. The pictures confirm some of the already known details. It shows the Redmi 7 Pro with waterdrop style notched display, this makes it the first for Xiaomi. Let’s check out other details.
Redmi 7 Pro: Specifications and Features
The TENNA listing had revealed almost all the key specs of the Redmi 7 Pro. Alongside TENNA, the Redmi phone was also spotted on the 3C listing. The leaked real life pictures of the Redmi 7 Pro comes from Tech microblogger Bang Gogo where the phone is seen kept next to the retail box with the name Redmi 7 Pro mentioned on it. Alongside the pictures, Russian YouTuber Andro News leaked a video showing the Redmi 7 Pro from the front side. None of the pictures or the video shows the phone from the back, but going by what TENNA suggest the Redmi 7 Pro will not be very different from the Redmi 6 Pro. It is expected to sport the same camera setup as the 6 Pro.
The pictures just show the phone with waterdrop style notch, but the YouTube video confirms come of the specs details of the Redmi 7 Pro. It suggests that the Redmi 7 Pro will come with a 5.84-inch display and the waterdrop notch will equip the selfie camera on it — there will be just one — while the earpiece and the sensors will be hidden and won’t be visible from the outside.
Xiaomi Redmi 7 Pro to Sport a Smaller Battery
The video reveals that the Redmi 7 Pro will be slimmer than the Redmi 6 Pro. It will measure around 7.8mm in thickness. Sadly, the Redmi 7 Pro is expected to be backed by a much smaller battery than the Redmi 6 Pro. The predecessor packed a 4000mah battery, but the 7 Pro is said to sport a 2900mAh battery. On the hardware front, the Redmi 7 Pro is said to use Qualcomm’s newly announced Snapdragon 632 chipset. To recall, the Redmi 6 Pro was powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor. This is surely a step up as the Snapdragon 632 is the direct successor to Snapdragon 625 SoC which we have seen in various smartphones.
The video further reveals that the Redmi 7 Pro will come with three variants — 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM with 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 256GB via microSD card.
