Just so you know, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro in India on 28th February. And a couple of months later, on 20th May, the brand launched the Redmi Note 7S in India; it is an advanced variant of the Redmi Note 7, but it still sits below to the Redmi Note 7 Pro in terms on specifications and price. The Redmi Note 7S is basically the Redmi Note 7, but with a 48MP + 5MP rear camera setup instead of a 12MP + 5MP configuration on the Redmi Note 7.
Redmi Note 7S Price in India
The Redmi Note 7S is available in two variants in India – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. The former costs INR 10,999, and the latter costs INR 12,999. The device can be had in Ruby Red, Onyx Black, and Sapphire Blue color variants.
Redmi Note 7S Specifications
The Redmi Note 7S features a plastic frame with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 at the front and back. The device is also splash-resistant. The Redmi Note 7S sports a 6.3-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and a U-shaped notch at the top for the front-facing camera.
Speaking of the camera, the device has a 48MP + 5MP dual-camera at the back and a 13MP camera at the front. The 48MP camera at the back is the primary camera, and it has a conventional field of view, whereas, the 5MP camera is a depth-sensor. In default mode, the 48MP camera combines four pixels into one to produce a 12MP final image. The pixel-binning helps in improving the lowlight image quality. The rear camera, unfortunately, cannot record 4K videos, even though the chipset is capable enough to support it.
Powering the Redmi Note 7S is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC; it has octa-core Kryo CPU and Adreno 512 GPU. The smartphone, as I said earlier, comes in 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage configurations. The device runs on Android 9 Pie operating system, and it has MIUI 10 user interface customizations. The MIUI 10 brings with it a ton of additional functionalities, such as dual-apps, app-lock, file hide, and customizable theme.
The Redmi Note 7S is backed by a 4000mAh battery, and the device supports 18W Quick Charge 4+ fast charging. The Redmi Note 7S also comes with USB Type-C port, which many of its competitors including the Realme 3 Pro misses out on. Speaking of connectivity, the device has dual-SIM with dual-4G and dual-VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, and Bluetooth v5.0.
