Update 1 (February 25, 2019 at 3:50 PM): Last week, Redmi President Lu Weibing announced that the Redmi Note 7 Pro will be launched in China this week. Days before the smartphone’s debut in the country, it has been spotted on the TENAA website. The images published on the TENAA website confirm the Redmi Note 7 Pro will look similar to the Redmi Note 7. As you can see in the images below, the smartphone has a waterdrop notch at the top and a vertically-stacked dual-camera setup at the rear. We can see the LED flash module below the dual rear cameras. The smartphone also has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
As for specifications, the TENAA listing for the M1901F7BE confirms the smartphone will have a 6.3-inch display and pack a 3900mAh capacity battery. In terms of physical size, the listing reveals the smartphone measures 159.21 x 75.21 x 8.1mm, identical to the Redmi Note 7. The rest of the smartphone’s key hardware specifications have not been listed on the TENAA website just yet. According to rumors, the Redmi Note 7 Pro might be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC, a newer and more powerful chipset compared to the Snapdragon 660 AIE chip that powers the Redmi Note 7. The Redmi Note 7 Pro will also feature a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor instead of the Samsung GM1 sensor found in the standard Redmi Note7.
Lu Weibing, who was recently appointed as the general manager of the independent Redmi brand and vice president of Xiaomi Group, today shared a poster on his Weibo page teasing the launch of the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The poster suggests the Redmi Note 7 Pro will be launched after Xiaomi debuts the Mi 9 flagship smartphone in China.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro to Launch in China Next Month?
As confirmed by Xiaomi recently, the company will be releasing the flagship Mi 9 smartphone at an event in Beijing on February 20. Since the Redmi Note 7 Pro has now been teased to launch after the Mi 9, we can expect it to be officially unveiled in China sometime next month. The Redmi Note 7 Pro will be a direct successor to the Redmi Note 6 Pro, which was launched in Thailand in September last year. Even though the Redmi Note 7 Pro will probably debut in China before other markets, we expect it to make its way to the Indian market soon after its announcement in China. Currently, however, there is very little that we know about the key hardware specifications and features of the Redmi Note 7 Pro. That said, we expect it to be a massive upgrade over its predecessor in most areas.
The regular Redmi Note 7, which was launched in China last month, will be launched in India on February 28. It comes with a 6.3-inch 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution IPS panel with a waterdrop notch and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. Under the hood, Redmi Note 7 is powered by a Snapdragon 660 AIE octa-core processor, clubbed with up to 6GB of RAM. One of its most impressive features is the 48MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on the back. For selfies, the Redmi Note 7 comes with a 13MP snapper on the front with a host of AI-assisted features for a better selfie experience. The smartphone is fueled by a 4000mAh capacity battery and offers Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 support. When it comes to software, the Redmi Note 7 runs Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 version based on Android 9.0 Pie.
