Xiaomi Redmi 7: Specs, Design and More

Similar to what TENAA listing revealed, the video also shows the Redmi 7 with Redmi by Xiaomi brand logo.

As noted the phone will include dot drop notch on the front that will house the selfie camera. On the hardware front, the Redmi 7 is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC which is also present on other phones like the Honor 8C and Asus Zenfone Max M2.

The Redmi 7 is said to be available in three variants – 2GB RAM/16GB storage, 3GB RAM/32GB storage and 4GB RAM/64GB storage. The video further reveals that the Redmi 7 will be backed by a 4000mAh battery. On the camera front, the Redmi 7 is said to include two cameras on the back and single on the front.

632 is a solid chipset if starts similar to Redmi 6 pricepoint. Xiaomi is out to dominate all segments till around 20K. If they release Mi9 undercutting One Plus by a decent margin(price it just under 30K), then they can dominate till 30K price point. High end will be with Samsung and Apple. This year Samsung has a good advantage as S10 series prices are way better than iphone xs/r prices.


OT: Finally honor team has accepted Carrier Aggregation issue on their device officially (as CA has been there in the settings to enable/disable). Now their core team is working to fix it
