Xiaomi's new Redmi Note 7 is significantly cheaper than other phones with a 48-megapixel camera

Earlier last month, Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi announced that it would launch a 48 MP camera smartphone this month. This is the first Redmi smartphone to come with a glass back.

The back of the smartphone is also covered with 2.5D curved glass and it actually looks quite attractive in Fantasy Blue and Twilight Gold color gradients. Depending on the variant you choose, the phone is available in four colors: Blue, red, black and a purplish "twilight" gradient.

If you're interested, preorders for the Redmi Note 7 open today and it'll hit store shelves on January 15 with a starting price of RMB 999 (about $150 USD) for 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The phone also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 256GB. However, it's not clear if Xiaomi will be releasing the Redmi 7 or Redmi Note 7 at that event.

Coming to the cameras, the Redmi Note 7 sports 48MP + 5MP dual cameras on the rear with f/1.8 aperture and a 13MP single camera on the front for selfies. This is the highest number of megapixel count Xiaomi has ever put on a phone. The camera app on this device comes loaded with AI features like auto scene detection, AI portrait mode, and AI beauty mode. Besides, it's also the first smartphone launched by Redmi which is now an independent brand. It is equipped with some impressive features, including an upper mid-range and capable silicon, USB Type-C and runs Android 9 Pie with MIUI 10. Connectivity options include USBType-Cport, 3.5mm headphone jack, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System.

It is backed by a 4000mAh non-removable battery and with the QuickCharge 4.0 support, the device can be fully charged in 1 hour 40 minutes. The 3GB RAM variant will now be priced at Rs 9,999, down from its launch price of Rs 11,499, and the 4GB RAM version will cost Rs 11,999 instead of Rs 13,499.

Mi A2 was launched in India for Rs 16,999 for the 4GB RAM model, while the 6GB RAM variant was priced at Rs 19,999. Notably, this is the first smartphone to have Snapdragon 660 SoC under 1000 Yuan in China. In India, the prices for Redmi Note 7 could start at Rs 14,999.
