Redmi has announced a 48MP camera device called the Note 7. Saying Redmi announced a new smartphone without mentioning Xiaomi can sound a little strange to some of you guys. It only means that Xiaomi’s Redmi is now a brand on its own, an independent brand that the company has allowed to be named after it’s mobile phones ( most especially budget phones ) while Xiaomi itself focuses on mid-range to premium devices. But it is still OK to say Redmi by Xiaomi has announced Note 7. Now about the Note 7, just like we’ve always known the Redmi line of phones, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 is also tagged entry-level which I quite disagree with.
Seeing the specs of these wonderful devices, it could also look midrange. And I like to call low-end devices like this a ‘standard low-end’ device. Going by its wonderful build, dual rear camera, and notch, it looks so premium, expensive than it’s the market price. Xiaomi will be looking to get a massive number of customers this year.

If you are looking for one of the best phones for 2019 below $200, you should consider the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. Forget about the price of this device, its durability is freaking amazing. Earlier before the announcement, the device received a durability test in such a way that you won’t expect and after the test the device proves to be exceptionally sturdy.
The video gives a clear view that both the front and back panels of the device can’t be broken if it drops or you device to hit it so hard with your knuckles.
Appearance And Camera
Just like the Lenovo Z5s, Redmi Note 7 is taking the same shape. The successor of Note 6 is taking 19.5:9 aspect ratio to deliver up to 6.3 inches in overall dimension. Full view display and there is only room for the front-facing camera via the teardrop notch. On the rear are two cameras; one is the primary cam which sports the 48MP lens.
The other cam is 5MP basically for depth. Sounds like a very good configuration for a crystal clear picture but hardware is only half the story for cameras, the story will then be complete when we put the camera to action.
Although with one of Qualcomm’s low range processors, the processor still works at an unbelievable 4X 2.2ghz and 4X 1.8ghz. That is an octa-core processor with a 2.2ghz speed at 4 cores and 1.8ghz at another 4 cores. That is big. As for the memory, there are variants and both are quite impressive. 3GB / 32GB and 4GB or 6GB / 64GB. The device supports external card storage which is expandable to 256GB. For your graphics use, you would have Adreno 512.
Other Key Features
Redmi note 7 has an impressive 4000mAh battery and it supports quick charge 4. A lot of potential users will be glad about the long-lasting battery and what about the price? The mobile phone is roughly around $150 for the 3GB variant while the 6GB variant is around $200. There’s an earphone jack, 3 color choices (Blue, Black, Twilight Gold), rear-mounted fingerprint amongst others. Redmi Note 7 is expected to be released by January 15.
