At its Redmi Y3 launch event, Xiaomi took the wraps off the new member to its Redmi series – Redmi 7. The Redmi 7 was launched in China last month as the successor to the Redmi 6. It is being touted as an ‘All Rounder’ smartphone by Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi India MD, which is probably based on the feedback on Redmi 6 series.

The Redmi 7 comes in Comet Blue, Eclipse Black, and Lunar Red colours.
The Redmi 7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor paired with two RAM and storage configurations. The internal memory is expandable by microSD card. There is a 6.26-inch Dot Notch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. It is backed by a 4000mAh battery and its charger is claimed to sustain voltage surges in India.
There are two cameras on the back of the Redmi 7 – a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. For selfies, Redmi 7 packs an 8-megapixel AI camera with new beauty mode features. It runs Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10. The Redmi 7 has a fingerprint sensor mounted at the back.
