Generation Y loved everything about #Redmi Y series & this is a testament in itself.
We’ve shipped 7 Mn+ Y series phones since launch & this is going to be much much higher.

Redmi Y3’s launch is officially scheduled on 24th April which the rumor mill believes will be the same day when Redmi 7 launches. Xiaomi already launched the upcoming phone back in March in China and India is the company’s biggest market, so it’s a no-brainer that Redmi 7 was sure to hit Indian shores soon.
Redmi 7 features a 6.2-inch Full-HD+ screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio with a ‘Dot Notch.’ The phone has a massive 4000 mAh battery. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC, with 2/3/4GB RAM, and 64GB of base storage further expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card slot. The Redmi 7 has a dual camera module, that consists of a 12MP primary sensor with f/2.2 lens and a 2MP secondary depth sensor. Xiaomi has also included Portrait and Night Mode. The selfie camera is an 8MP lens capable of shooting 1080 video AT 30fps.
Other usual features are an inclusion of the ever-disappearing 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro USB port with 10W fast charging, a hybrid dual-sim, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. In China, the price starts around CNY 699, roughly Rs. 7,100, while the highest configuration costs CNY 999, roughly Rs. 10,200.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro, launched in February 2019, was a surprise device which hogged the Redmi Note 7’s limelight. What are your views about this phone? Let us know in the comments section below.
