Redmi Note 7 quick specs: Android 9.0 Pie smartphone. MIUI 10. Announced January 2019. Features 6.3-inch IPS LCD display, Snapdragon 660 chipset, up to 4 GB RAM, up to 128 GB ROM, 48 MP dual camera, and 4000 mAh battery with Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.

This is the first phone under the newly announced Redmi sub-brand by Xiaomi.  That means it carries the new Redmi logo.

We wish we could yell, “Death to the notch!” But not quite on this model. The 6.3-inch display has a waterdrop notch, a carryover from 2018. It does offer Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

It looks like 2019 is going to go down as the year of the 48 MP camera. The Redmi Note 7 has one combined with a secondary 5 MP shooter. For selfies, there is a 13 megapixels lens at the front of the phone.

Redmi Note 7 specifications

There are three variants of the Note 7, with RAM and internal storage configurations being the distinguishing factors. The base configuration matches 3GB RAM with 32 GB storage, the second 4GB RAM with 64 GB, while the third one combines 6GB RAM with 64 GB storage.

Powering the phone is Qualcomm’s mid-range champion, Snapdragon 660, and Adreno 512 graphics processing unit. This chipset is powerful enough to deliver flagship performance in a mid-range device like this one.

In terms of software, you have the latest and the greatest from Alphabet here, Android 9 Pie with Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 10 layer over it.
