Redmi Note 7 Vs Redmi Note 6 Pro : What All Is New
Xiaomi had previously announced that Redmi, it’s most popular series of smartphones will be turned into a separate sub-brand. On 10 January 2019, Redmi launched their first smartphone, the Redmi Note 7 in China. It is the successor to the well knownRedmi Note 6 Pro which was launched last year. The Remi Note 7 seems impressive as such specifications have not been seen on a sub US$ 150 smartphone. Not only did Redmi price the device similar to its predecessor, but the new device also gets significantly bumped up specifications. Here is a list of all the major changes between the Note 7 and its forerunner.
The Redmi Note 7, unlike the Note 6 Pro which had four cameras, has three camera sensors. Although Redmi has replaced the dual front camera setup with a single sensor on the new device, the dual rear camera setup gets a massive boost. The rear camera setup of the Redmi Note 7 now consists of an f/1.8 aperture equipped 48 MP camera sensor paired with a 5 MP depth sensor. The 48 MP rear camera uses the Sony IMX 856 sensor which is usually seen on flagship devices like the Honor V20.
In addition to the better camera, the SoC on the Redmi Note 7 is also beefed up. The new smartphone packs the Snapdragon 660 SoC while both the Redmi Note 6 Pro featured the Snapdragon 636 SoC. Even though the Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 636 consist of a similar Octa-Core CPU the former has a higher clock speed and better Adreno 512 GPU. The Snapdragon 636 has eight Cores which are all clocked at 1.8 GHz whereas the Snapdragon 660 has two clusters of four cores which are clocked at 1.8 GHz and 2.2 GHz.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro has a wide notch at the top of the display that houses the dual front cameras and the earpiece. On the other hand, the Redmi Note 7 only has one 13 MP camera which is housed in small waterdrop notch above the display. The earpiece on the new device is built into the top bezel of the front side. Additionally, the rear of the new smartphone gets an all-new back design. Unlike the aluminium back on its predecessor, the Note 7 has a gradient style back panel that seems to be made out of glass.
To catch up on the latest industry standard, the Redmi Note 7 gets a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer whereas the Redmi Note 6 Pro has the Micro USB port. Additionally, the latest smartphone also supports Quick Charge 4.0 that enables a device to be charged with up to 18 watts of power.
