Earlier this year, Xiaomi declared that it will turn Redmi, its most popular smartphone series into a separate sub-brand. The company announced its first smartphone, the Redmi Note 7 on 10 January 2019 for the Chinese market. The smartphone is a successor to the popular Redmi Note 6 Pro which was launched late last year. The new device boasts a 48 MP Sony IMX 586 rear camera sensor and is priced very aggressively. According to a tip that we have received, Redmi plans to soon launch the Redmi Note 7 in India and it will have similar pricing as the Chinese variants.
