As previously stated, the Note 7S is just a rebranded version of the Chinese Redmi Note 7. The main difference is on the rear camera module – While the Indian Note 7 got a 12MP + 2MP double-setup, the Note 7S boasts the same Samsung’s 48MP + 5MP setup that ships with the Chinese variant.
The Note 7S sits as Note 7 series cost-effective smartphone. Users that are able to pay little extra bucks for more performance still can get the Snapdragon 675 powered Redmi Note 7 Pro that ships with an improved Sony’s IMX586 48MP camera.
