Redmi 7 China launch is set for Monday, March 18. The next smartphone to the Redmi series is the successor to the Redmi 6 and a part of the seventh-generation of Xiaomi’s budget range of smartphones. The company has been teasing the Redmi 7 for a while in its old fashion, where key officials reveal some of the specifications on Weibo and elsewhere. Xiaomi will also launch the Reddmi Note 7 Pro in the Chinese market alongside.
Redmi 7 launch is scheduled to begin at 2 pm CST, which translates to 11.30 am IST on March 18. The event is being held in Beijing, China. The company will go live with the launch event on its China website.
According to the leaks, rumours, and the Geekbench listing spotted last-minute, the Redmi 7 will come with a 6.26-inch HD+ LCD ‘waterdrop-notch’ display with an aspect ratio of 19:9. The smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor along with at least 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, as per a TENAA listing. However, there are likely more RAM/storage variants – 3GB/32GB and 6GB/64GB. Geekbench listing for Redmi 7 says there could be even a 4GB RAM variant.
The Redmi 7 could be priced between 700 yuan and 800 yuan if the tip by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun is anything to go by. This means the India pricing could be somewhere around Rs 10,000 for the base variant when Redmi 7 arrives here, which it definitely will.
The Redmi 7 will pack two cameras at the back, as per the leaks, one of which is a 12-megapixel shooter. On the front, the Redmi 7 is expected to come with an 8-megapixel camera. The smartphone is said to house a 4000mAh battery, likely even with the fast-charging support.
