This budget smartphone is making sales records in China. About 1 lakh units have been sold in less than 9 minutes. Redmi Note 7 comes with a departure from an all-new design, its predecessor, Note 6, whose design note 5 is largely unaffected.
The new Note 7, however, sports a waterdrop notch with thin beadles on the sides. It also has a 48MP rear camera, which makes it the cheapest 48MP camera smartphone in the world.
Due to the waterdrop notch on the top of the display, note 7 has a 6.3-inch LCD screen with 2340×1080 pixels. The company claims that with the brightness of 450 knits similar to the Note 6 Pro, bezels on the sides are just 0.8 mm thick. The camera unit is placed in the top left corner of the rear panel, which is vertically aligned, with a single LED flash below the sensor; There is also a secondary 5MP rear sensor for portrait shots. The camera appears to be placed in a large, reflecting module.
The device is operated by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, and 4000mAh battery. The phone will come in 3GB, 4GB and 6GB RAM variants, which will have 32GB and 64GB storage models. At the bottom is a USB Type-C port, which can replace the Micro-USB port, which has most of the phones in this budget. This Qualcomm supports QuickCare 4.0.
Selfie camera has a 13MP sensor, which has an AI algorithm for beautification and portrait mode. According to Xiaomi (or is it Redmi now?), The display is so durable that by stepping on it it will not break. Do we test that claim?

The price of Redmi Note 7 starts from 999 yuan for base variants (3 GB + 32GB), which is converted to approximately $ 147; There is a priceless 6GB + 64GB variant, which costs 1399 yuan (about $206).
