However, more people are aware of its "Redmi" lineup than the company's name "Xiaomi".

Xiaomi announced the Redmi range would become its own sub-brand earlier this month, and we've now got the first device as part of the new arrangement.

As previously mentioned, the most impressive feature that Redmi Note 7 has to offer is the rear mounted dual camera setup which features 48-megapixels. This rear camera also comes with features like EIS and Night Mode.

Starting with its design, it is made of a metal body with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front as well as the backside of the phone.

Display: The Redmi phone comes packed with a 6.3-inch full-HD+ LTPS display with screen resolution of 1080x2340 pixels and aspect ratio of 19.5:9.

Processor: The Note 7 is powered by 2.2GHz Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC coupled with Adreno 512 GPU. It also supports up to 256GB of expandable storage via MicroSD cards. This is nearly certainly Sony's IMX586 sensor which was announced back in July past year, and in addition to the upcoming Redmi Note 7, the Huawei Nova 4 also ships with that sensor, while it seems like the Honor View 20 will include it as well. Ahead of the unveiling, the alleged Redmi Note 7 was recently spotted on the Chinese certification agency TENAA's website. The Redmi Note 7 has a USB-C port and comes with a regular 5V/2A charger in the box, but you can add a fast-charging block in your package for just CNY10. The Redmi Note 7 not only packs better hardware, it even gets a more premium build and a much longer warranty.

The Redmi Note 7 value begins at CNY 999 (generally Rs. 10,300) for the 3GB RAM + 32GB capacity choices, going up to CNY 1,199 (generally Rs. 12,400) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB capacity alternative, and CNY 1,399 (generally Rs. 14,500) for the 6GB RAM + 64GB capacity alternative. Several rumours hint that the device could be called as Redmi Pro 2 or Redmi 7 Pro or Redmi 7. This will be the first to be launched after the Redmi brand being independent of Xiaomi.

On that note - yes, yes indeed, there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack in the mix. Wrong! The 48-megapixels Redmi Note 7 is priced at only $150. As always, Xiaomi will bring the Redmi Note 7 to other markets soon after it launches in China. Depending on the variant you choose, the phone is available in four colors: Blue, red, black and a purplish "twilight" gradient.
