Xiaomi’s Redmi is among the key smartphone brands offering quality products with a high value for money.
After launching the Xiaomi Mi 9 globally and Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in India, Xiaomi today announced the Redmi 7 in China. The Redmi 7 serves as the successor to the Xiaomi Redmi 6, which was launched last year alongside Redmi 6 Pro and the Redmi 6A, and starts at 699 yuan ($105).
Redmi 7 dons the modern water drop notch above its 6.36-inch HD+ display, which has an aspect ratio of 19:9. The smartphone also scores well on the durability front, thanks to the Gorilla Glass 5 protection above the screen and the P2i liquid-repellant nano-coating for resistance against water splashes. Further, the display has been certified by Germany’s TÜV Rheinland with a promise of cutting down blue light and protecting users’ eyes from any fatigue due to excessive usage.
The Redmi 7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC and will be available in three different RAM and storage variants – 2GB RAM with 16GB of storage, 3GB RAM with 32GB of storage, and 4GB RAM with 64GB of storage. The chipset is a significant upgrade from the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC which powered the predecessor, Redmi 6.
Another major highlight of the Redmi 7 is its 4,000mAh battery and Xiaomi claims this results in standby of 400 hours. The device supports a charging rate of up to 10W and comes with AI optimizations to increase the backup further.
For photography, the Redmi 7 is equipped with a 12MP primary camera on the back along with a 2MP depth sensor. It uses the same camera sensor as the Mi 6 – Xiaomi’s flagship from 2017, which represents the dynamic and fast-evolving smartphone landscape, especially in the Asian markets. The onboard AI improves pictures captured with the rear camera further.
On the front, the Redmi 7 features an 8MP camera for selfies. This camera comes with an AI beauty mode and also supports face unlock.
The Redmi 7 comes with multiple connectivity options including 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 3.5mm headphone jack, GPS, and an IR blaster. While the smartphone’s back might give the illusion of a polished glass surface, it is actually made from polycarbonate material. More
