The (Xiaomi) Redmi Note 7 Arrived with a 48 MP Camera
Xiaomi launches the Redmi Note 7 and formalizes the birth of the new brand “Redmi”. The smartphone has the Snapdragon 660 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.
After the previews of the previous days, Xiaomi officially presented the Redmi Note 7, the new low-cost smartphone of the Chinese company. During the presentation there was also another big announcement: Redmi will become a separate brand (again owned by Xiaomi) and will focus on the production of medium-range smartphones with excellent value for money.
The smartphones will have the writing “Redmi by Xiaomi” at the back. This is the third independent brand that Xiaomi launches in recent months and is going to add to Pocophone and BlackShark (gaming smartphone).
The device has a very interesting data sheet characterized by the Snapdragon 660 chipset and a 48-megapixel rear camera made by Samsung. For the Redmi Note 7, Xiaomi decided to adopt the design with the notch “drop,” a solution that we will see on many devices coming out in 2019 and that allows reducing the thickness of the frames to a minimum.
The smartphone is a mid-range with an entry-level price. On board the device, we find the Snapdragon 660 supported by 3/4/6GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal memory, expandable up to 256GB with a microSD card.
The device will come in three different versions: the basic model will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, then there will be an advanced version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space and the top model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
The display is 6.3 inches with Full HD+ resolution and aspect ratio of 19.5:9. As previously written, we find the drip notch that houses the 13 Megapixel front photosensor.
One of the most interesting features is the posterior photographic sector. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 features a 48 Megapixel sensor made by Samsung. Compared to rumors, the Chinese company has preferred to mount the sensor made by Samsung and not the 48-megapixel lens of Sony.
The reason is quite simple; it would seem that Honor has purchased all production for its Honor View 20. Xiaomi said an updated version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro with the Sony photosensor would arrive in spring.
The main sensor is supported by a second 5 Megapixel lens dedicated to the bokeh effect and depth of field. The Redmi Note 7 has 4000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4. It also has the 3.5mm audio jack.
