In past days, 'Redmi by Xiaomi' the Xiaomi sub-brand released its first flagship 'Red Rice note 7' (Red(Mi)(Millet)), flagship because the Note series has been a success when considering the budget, having spectacular features equipped with glass on both sides, a small notch namely water-drop notch on top of the screen, USB-C the new standard  supporting Qualcomm Quickcharge 4 protocol, with inclusion of 'Infrared blaster' which was found missing in Poco F1 another sub-brand of Xiaomi. Fortunately, the trump card 'headphone jack' is still in our hands. Also, there are  rumors of the note 7 to appear soon in India and I believe it will. So, let us see the specs first.

The Redmi Note 7 price in China starts at as low as CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,500) for the basic model. There are CNY 1,199 (roughly Rs. 12,500) and CNY 1,399 (roughly Rs. 15,000) variants as well. We can very well expect the Redmi Note 7 to launch in India below Rs. 15,000 price point.


Currently, Xiaomi is countering with one of its biggest controversies which is the massive 48-megapixel sensor on the Redmi Note 7. The Internet was baffled by the megapixel count on the device especially realizing that the chipset doesn't support such a huge sensor.
