Redmi Note 7 is arguably the most highly anticipated smartphone from Xiaomi right now, and after making an impressive debut in the Chinese market, the smartphone is all set to arrive in India. Redmi Note 7 will be launched in India on February 28, the company confirmed on Thursday. Xiaomi has already kicked off the registration process for purchasing tickets for the launch event to be held in New Delhi. Xiaomi has been teasing the Redmi Note 7's India launch for quite some time and it finally made the launch date official via a tweet today.
The Redmi Note7 was launched in January, packing capable hardware and bringing an attractive design at a competitive price point in typical Xiaomi fashion. The smartphone quickly became a major hit as the company reportedly sold 1 million units of the Redmi Note 7 in the Chinese market in a span of just three weeks since its launch. The company is finally ready to release it outside China and India will be the first international market to get the phone. According to a tweet from the company, it is hosting an event on February 28 where it will officially launch the smartphone.
The official India pricing and availability details remain unclear for now, however the phone carries a price tag of CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,300) in China 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. We expect similar pricing for India. Xiaomi India's Managing Director, Manu Kumar Jain labelled the Redmi Note 7 as a “game changer device” that will disrupt the dynamics of the particular segment.
