Redmi Note 7 India launch is expected to be soon, with the company teasing the impending arrival on Twitter. To recall, the Redmi Note 7 was launched in China in January as the first smartphone under the new Redmi sub-brand. Xiaomi country head Manu Kumar Jain has been dropping hints about the Redmi Note 7 India launch, and recently the phone's India colour options and RAM + storage models were also purportedly leaked. As announced ahead of the China launch, the Redmi brand will focus on budget devices with competing specifications and will be available online-only. The Redmi Note 7 key highlights include a 48-megapixel rear sensor, a 4,000mAh battery, Snapdragon 660 processor, and 13-megapixel selfie sensor support. The phone also comes with a 6.3-inch full-HD+ display and up to 6GB of RAM.
Redmi Note 7 price in India is likely to be around the China pricing range. In China, the Redmi Note 7 is priced starting at CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,500) for the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage option, going up to CNY 1,199 (roughly Rs. 12,400) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage option, and CNY 1,399 (roughly Rs. 14,500) for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage option.
A recent report suggests that the Redmi Note 7 will launch in India in two variants - 3GB RAM + 32GB storage version and the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model. The 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model may also be launched in the country at a later date. In terms of the colour options, the Redmi Note 7 will allegedly be offered in Red, Black, and Blue colour options in the country.
