We’ve been hearing about new Xiaomi phones for quite some time and the rumors are finally becoming a reality. The company is releasing the Redmi 7 series on January 10 with a 48 MP camera.

The teaser appeared both on the official website of Xiaomi and on the Redmi account on Weibo. It also says "new independent brand", meaning Redmi is taking the Honor and Realme way and becoming a brand of its own, while still sharing most of the R&D facilities and manufacturing plants as the mother company.

We can see the shadow of the “Redmi” sign says 4800, which is clearly a nod towards the 48 MP teaser from last month. The event is taking place in Beijing and will start at 14:00 local time. We expect to see at least one device called Xiaomi Redmi 7, but there might be more iterations, like Redmi 7 Pro, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi 7A and other typical moniker combos.

If the phone is indeed coming with a 48 MP sensor, there might be a possibility to see Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2, a new iteration of the dual-cam Redmi Pro that arrived in the summer of 2016. It was one of the first devices to introduce real-time bokeh mode, along with “quite good” primary snapper.

Redmi Note 7


Xiaomi announced that the Redmi range would be a sub-brand earlier this month, and we’ve now got the first device as part of the new arrangement. Say hello to the Redmi Note 7.

True to previous teases, you’re getting a device with a glass back and gradient color schemes. But there’s more to the phone than a premium design.

The star of the show is arguably the rear camera setup, consisting of a 48MP f/1.8 main camera (Samsung GM1, 0.8 micron pixels) and a 5MP secondary shooter. The company confirmed that the main camera is able to make use of pixel-binning to take better shots, albeit at a 12MP resolution. Meanwhile, selfie duties are handled by a 13MP snapper.

The Redmi Note 7 is powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset, which isn’t the latest 600 series processor but still pretty powerful for a budget device. You can also expect a 4,000mAh battery, much like previous Redmi Note devices.

Other noteworthy specs include a 6.3-inch full HD+ display with a waterdrop notch, USB Type-Cconnectivity, 18 watt wired charging, an IR blaster, and a headphone jack.


But the best thing about the phone has to be the price, starting at just 999 yuan (~R2 032.66) for the 3GB/32GB model. You’ve also got a 4GB/64GB variant for 1,199 yuan (~R2 447.49), and a 6GB/64GB model for 1,399 yuan (~R2 848.49). Could this be the cheapest 48MP smartphone on the market for the next few months? I wouldn’t bet against the company.

Redmi Note 7 Pro
All specifications as same as the Redmi Note 7. The key difference is that the 48MP camera has the Sony IMX586 sensor, instead of the Samsung one. Redmi Note 7 Pro will go on sale post the Chinese New Year.

I dont know why they advertise this phone as 48MP as its clearly not. Its a 12 MP camera with 1.6µm sensors

Chipset only support up to 25, and the phone only gets 12 MP shots by grouping 4x0.8µm sensors to act as one. Its better than say the Pocophone's 1.4µm as more light gets recorded per pixel but its not a 48 MP phone.

ooooh... from where ?
I’m in Indonesia. Currently deciding between 4gb/64gb for R2600, 4gb/128gb for R3000 or 6gb/64 for R3200.

Probably stick with a 64gb storage, bit I don’t know how significant the increase will be between the 4gb and 6gb RAM models and if it warrants the extra R600????
