[Exclusive] Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 India Launch Could Happen in March

While the Redmi Note 7 is currently on sale in China, the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Go are expected to be officially unveiled soon.


Last month, we told you that Xiaomi will soon launch the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Go smartphones in the Indian market. Unfortunately, it now appears Xiaomi fans in India will need to wait slightly longer to get their hands on the Redmi Note 7. We can now confirm that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 budget Android smartphone will be launched in India only in March and not this month. However, we still cannot confirm a specific launch date. Xiaomi India is likely to reveal the Redmi Note 7 launch date by the end of this month or by early next month. The company has already started teasing the launch of the Redmi Note 7 in India on social media.


Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand launched the Redmi Note 7 budget Android smartphone in China last week. As confirmed by the sub-brand already, it will be launching the Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone next month. Apart from the Redmi Note 7 Pro, the company is also rumored to launch its first Android Go smartphone soon. If you are a Xiaomi fan and are eagerly looking forward to the launch of these three smartphones in India, we have some great news for you. One of our trusted sources has confirmed that the Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, and the Redmi Go will be launched in the country before the end of the first quarter.

Three New Redmi Smartphones Set to Launch in India Soon

Launched in China last week, the Redmi Note 7 is expected to succeed the Redmi Note 5 in the Indian market. In most areas, the Redmi Note 7 is a huge upgrade over the Redmi Note 5. This could probably mean the Redmi Note 7 will be launched at a higher price point than its predecessor. The smartphone sports a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with 1080 x 2340 pixels Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE octa-core processor with an Adreno 512 GPU. In the camera department, Redmi Note 7 impresses with a 48MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on the back and a 13MP selfie snapper on the front. It also includes a 4000mAh battery with fast charging support, an IR blaster, and a USB Type-C port.

The Redmi Note 7 Pro will come with a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor on the back, as opposed to the 48MP Samsung ISOCELL GM1 sensor used in the Redmi Note 7. Another area where the Redmi Note 7 Pro is expected to be superior to the standard Redmi Note 7 is performance. The smartphone is rumored to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 11nm octa-core SoC under the hood, which is a pretty impressive upgrade over the Snapdragon 660 SoC that powers the Redmi Note 7. In China, the smartphone is rumored to be priced at CNY 1,499 (INR 15,750 approx.).

While not much is known about the Redmi Go, the smartphone was recently certified by various agencies including the US FCC, EEC, and SIRIM Malaysia. It is tipped to come with a 5.9-inch sized display and will run on the Android Pie Go Edition out of the box.
