Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi introduced its very first smartphone in China in January this year. Dubbed Redmi Note 7, the smartphone comes equipped with an impressive 48MP camera and a waterdrop notch display. Currently, it is sold in three memory variants in China, with the top-end option featuring 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. According to a new tip that we have received, the Xiaomi sub-brand may soon launch a 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant of the Redmi Note 7 in China.
Redmi Note 7 6GB RAM + 128GB Storage Variant May Debut on March 18
The Redmi Note 7 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant is likely to be launched in China on March 18, which is when the sub-brand will be launching the Redmi Note 7 Pro for the Chinese market. However, we cannot confirm it as the information that we have received only claims the variant is expected to launch in China “soon”. Apart from higher onboard storage, the 6GB RAM + 128GB RAM variant of the Redmi Note 7 will be identical to the three existing memory variants.
The tip also claims the budget-friendly Redmi 7 may debut in China soon, likely on the same day when the Redmi Note 7 Pro launches in the country. Redmi 7 was recently certified by TENAA, revealing nearly all its key features and specifications. We have also come across a video on YouTube that shows off the upcoming Redmi 7 in action alongside the Redmi Note 7. As can be seen quite clearly in the video above, the Redmi 7 will have a waterdrop notch display and dual rear cameras. Similar to the Redmi Note 7, the Redmi 7 will also feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a gradient finish. While the smartphone’s TENAA listing did not specify the chipset under the hood, the video reveals the Redmi 7 will be running on a 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz. The Redmi 6 runs on a 12nm Mediatek Helio P22 chipset.
