Redmi Note 7 launched for $150, what to expect?
After announcing Redmi to become its sub-brand, Xiaomi announced a new Note under Redmi sub-brand. This device, Redmi Note 7 is the first smartphone, mind it, budget-friendly, to feature a massive 48MP camera. Also, the image sensors used here are Samsung’s latest ISOCELL sensors.
The new Redmi Note 7 features a nice looking rear, with curved class and gradient finish. The USP here is the massive camera inside a budget device. Well, Xiaomi played well.
The Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch FHD+ display, with a massive 4,000mAh battery onboard, along with USB Type-C port. This enables you to transfer data and charge your device at a faster rate. Also, inside the box, you get an 18W charging brick as well. The device retains the headphone jack.
This time, Xiaomi is using Snapdragon 660 SoC at this budget range, which is far better than their all-time favorite Snapdragon 625 SoC.
Coming back to the camera, the rear camera feature Samsung GM1 0.8 micron f/1.8 camera, giving you 48MP camera at once. Another 5MP camera is present for depth sensing as well. The front, notch camera features a 13MP camera.
The Redmi Note 7 is priced for ¥999 or $147 for 3GB/32GB model, whereas the 4GB/64GB will be available for ¥1,199 or $177. The highest model featuring 6GB/64GB storage option will b available for ¥1,399 or $206.
However, we don’t even know if the device is for the Chinese market or for the global market.
Can we expect this to be the cheapest smartphone to feature such a massive camera? The future will tell. No matter how bigger the Megapixels are, if the underlying sensor isn’t properly utilized, you cannot achieve the maximum potential of the underlying sensor at all.
