The new Redmi Note 7 Pro comes with Snapdragon 675 processor, USB-C, new colors and other enhancements.
Redmi Note 7 Pro is very similar to Redmi Note 7; the phone is available in Space Black, Nebula Red and Neptune Blue, and all three feature subtle gradients. One change out is the use of a USB-C connector for the first time.
Inside, the Snapdragon 660 from Redmi Note 7 has been replaced by a more robust 675 Snapdragon with the Kryo 460 processor. The processor is coupled with up to 6 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of storage, which is the first in the Redmi family Note.
Out of the box, Redmi Note 7 Pro will be running the MIUI 10, based on Android 9 Pie.
The phone supports Quick Charge 4 and is compatible with chargers with outputs up to 18W. However, the device comes with a 10 W charger in the retail box. Battery capacity remains unchanged at 4,000mAh.
The highlight of this phone is the same Sony IMX586 48MP sensor we saw on Redmi Note 7 and other recent devices. Using pixel placement, this sensor combines images from four adjacent pixels into one, capturing more information about the scene. This setting allows Redmi Note 7 Pro to take enhanced low-light shots, but also get great zoom.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro with 4GB RAM and 64GB RAM will cost 13,999 rupees (~ $ 196). The variant with 6 GB and 128 GB RAM will cost 16,999 rupees (~ US $ 238). This compares very favorably with competing devices like Honor View 20 or the Samsung Galaxy M20.
The Pro version is 4,000 rupees more expensive than the Redmi Note 7, which starts with 9,999 rupees in India.
Redmi Note 7 Pro will begin shipping March 13 at 12:00 PM on Mi.com, Mi Home and Flipkart, with the availability to expand to more retailers soon.
