Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has been sharing teasers for the launch of its upcoming Redmi Note 7 in India. While Redmi Note 7 is scheduled to launch in India on February 28, the brand dropped a teaser image, which indicates that the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro might have an in-display fingerprint sensor in the upcoming phone.
Redmi posted a challenge on its official Twitter handle asking the audience to find humans in a 48MP (6000 X 8000 pixel) PNG image of number 7. The image is also filled with easter eggs like a 48MP dual camera setup, 4000 mAh battery, a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and also shows what looks like an in-display fingerprint sensor.

One way of seeing this is that the Redmi Note 7 Pro will indeed come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
We know that Redmi Note 7 is launching on February 28 in India, but the Chinese variant of the phone doesn’t have an in-display fingerprint sensor. So either Redmi Note 7 is coming to India with different specifications or Redmi is launching both Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro on the same date in India.
How does Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro differ?
While both Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro will have a 48MP camera, the latter will have a better one as it will have a Sony IMX586 image sensor,instead of a Samsung GM1 sensor. Sony IMX586 sensor is being used on premium phones like Honor View20.
While Redmi Note 7 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, leaks suggest that Redmi Note 7 Pro might be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor.
