Xiaomi Redmi Note 7S India Launch Confirmed: Price, Specs, Features, Availability & More!
Xiaomi India has just confirmed that it’s launching Redmi Note 7S in India this week. It’s the first Note S series smartphone, and it come with similar features and internals. Scheduled to launch on May 20 in India, the new smartphone will be a budget series device.
Redmi Note 7S will also come with a 48MP lens as Redmi Note 7 Pro.
The company was about to launch Mi A3 this month, but it seems to be Redmi Note 7S first. The company has already confirmed that they are bringing a Snapdragon 730 device to India.
Redmi Note 7S has been confirmed by Xiaomi India MD Manu Jain, and it’s all set to go official on May 20 in India.
Let’s check out the top details.
Redmi Note 7S: Design & Features
The company hasn’t revealed much about the device, but it’s going to be very similar to the current Redmi Note 7 series devices. On the out, Redmi Note 7S will come with the same design as Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro. The glass sandwich design will be a part of the Redmi Note 7S device as well.
Coming to display, the company will be using the same dot notch full HD+ display for Redmi Note 7S.
The company is yet to confirm the processor, but it may run on the same chipset as Redmi Note 7, the Snapdragon 660 chip. The announcement confirmed that the Redmi Note 7S will come with the 48MP camera.
Xiaomi is yet to name the sensor. So it could be either the Samsung GM1 48MP sensor, previously used in the Redmi Note 7 Chinese variant or the Sony IMX 586 48MP sensor used in Redmi Note 7 Pro.
Redmi Note 7S will come with a dual camera setup at the back panel. The smartphone will come with the same Redmi Note 7 series design including the other features as battery, OS, Type C port and storage configurations.
Assuming It: Why Suddenly Redmi Note 7S?
Redmi Note 7S can be a remodelled Chinese variant of Redmi Note 7. The Indian Redmi Note 7 doesn’t come with the 48MP sensor, while the Chinese model has it. The Redmi Note 7 smartphone in India comes with a 12MP primary shooter.
And Xiaomi India has been repeatedly emphasizing on the 48MP lens.
So, Redmi Note 7S in India could just be the Chinese Redmi Note 7 donning the Samsung 48MP GM1 sensor instead of the Sony 48MP IMX 586 sensor as the Note 7 Pro. Again, this is just an assumption.
Redmi Note 7S India Price: Redmi Note 7S Price In India
Xiaomi is again back on its signature pricing style. The Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro was priced very aggressively in the country, and the same is expected with Redmi Note 7S.
The smartphone will probably place in between Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro. The rest depends on the processor and camera sensor used in the device.
Coming to the Redmi Note 7S India price, the smartphone may cost another thousand bucks more than Redmi Note 7. The price may start at Rs 10,999 for the base model. The company will be placing it comfortably between the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro pricing categories.
Upcoming Xiaomi Devices In India: New Redmi Devices In India
Xiaomi has a number of devices planned in the next few months. It will begin with Redmi Note 7S, followed by the upcoming Redmi flagship, Redmi K20. The company has already confirmed the launch of Redmi K20 in the country.
The company has also confirmed a Snapdragon 730 phone in India, expected to be the Mi A3.
There will be a few more Redmi budget devices including the much-awaited Redmi 7A. Finally, by the end of the second quarter and early Q3, the company will be bringing in the Poco F1 successor, Poco F2.
