The Redmi Note 7 and it’s pro variant will both arrive in China on March 18 weeks after it debuted in India. While there have been wide-spread speculations that the Redmi 7 will launch alongside the Note devices, Redmi CEO Lu Weibing has indeed confirmed the Redmi 7 will launch alongside the Note 7 in India on March 18.
Lu Weibing released a launch event poster earlier today scheduling a launch event for March 18 in China. Aside from the launch date, the poster contains the first official render of the device which reveals the design from all angle. From the poster seen below, it is apparent the Redmi 7 will get a vertically aligned dual rear cameras, a fingerprint sensor, while it will get a water-drop notch display with slim bezels and a rather large chin.
While the Redmi 7 looks similar to the Redmi Note 7, leaks and rumors so far suggests the device will come flaunting a 6.26-inch water drop screen with a resolution of 1520×720 and a screen aspect ratio of 19:9, while it will come with an octa-core processor that is clocked at 1.8GHz with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The device is expected to come fitted with an 8 million pixels front camera, a dual 12-megapixel + 8-megapixel rear camera as well as a 4000mAh battery.
The phone listed on TENAA measures 158.65×76.43×8.47mm and weighs 180 grams, while the company CEO earlier hinted the device will come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, and infrared (IR) blaster. And while we can be sure of the market price, the company CEO a while ago also hinted that the Redmi 7 could come at about 700 yuan ($104) to 800 yuan ($119) device.
