Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 Pro has allegedly passed 3C certification in China, according to a report. This comes even as Xiaomi in India is gearing up to launch the Redmi Note 7 on February 28 at an event in Delhi. The Redmi Note 7 Pro variant is supposed to sport a better 48MP camera at the back, compared to the regular variant.
At the launch of Redmi Note 7, Xiaomi had indicated it would reveal the Pro variant around the time of the Chinese New Year, but that has not happened. However, given the phone has been spotted on 3C certification, it could launch soon, towards the end of February. Xiaomi also has another launch geared up on February 20: its flagship Mi 9 smartphone.

The listing does not appear to confirm any of the specifications of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, though Xiaomi has confirmed that the 48MP sensor will be the one from Sony, which is the IMX586.
