Redmi 7 has only been announced for the Chinese market but its arrival in India is expected
Redmi 7 has been officially launched by Xiaomi at an event in Beijing, China. The successor to the Redmi 6 comes with a Snapdragon 632 processor, a ‘Dot Drop’ display, and P2i splash-proof technology for “better” water resistance. This is the third smartphone to the newly formed Redmi brand led by General Manager Lu Weibing. The Redmi 7 has only been announced for the Chinese market but its arrival in India is expected. Xiaomi also unveiled the Redmi Note 7 Pro in China alongside.

Redmi 7 Specifications
The dual-SIM supported Redmi 7 runs Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10. Redmi 7 sports a 6.26-inch HD+ ‘Dot Drop’ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
