Xiaomi is about to launch the Redmi 7 in India. The company took to Twitter to tease the upcoming budget smartphone. The image and the tweet don’t reveal much, but the emphasis on number 7 hints at the imminent launch of Redmi 7 in India. Given previous indications that the company plans to launch the Redmi 7 in India in April, the hint is good enough.
In a tweet by Redmi India, the company said it has shipped 7 million units of the Redmi Y series since launch, citing IDC data. Interestingly, the tweet hints at the arrival of Redmi 7 with “You”ll know exactly in 7 days. But what’s with 7?” in the caption. It’s likely that Xiaomi will launch one more smartphone on April 24, as the company has already confirmed the launch of Redmi Y3 on the same date. ‘
Redmi 7, as we already know, will succeed the Redmi 6. The phone comes with a 6.26-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop-style notch, Snapdragon 632 processor, 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM, dual rear camera setup (12MP+2MP), 8MP front camera, and a 4,000mAh battery. In China, Redmi 7 costs 699 Yuan (or approx Rs 7,000) for 2GB RAM + 16GB storage. Expect Indian prices to be in the same range.
