Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 gets Bluetooth certification ahead of launch

A few days back, Xiaomi spun-off its Redmi series of smartphones into an individual brand.

Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi is reportedly gearing up to launch the Redmi Note 7 smartphone soon in China and the device has been listed on Geekbench.

The Redmi Note 7 also features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and will be available in blue, gold and twilight black color options.

The front camera is not too shabby either, with its 13MP sensor and AI capabilities it has all the bells and whistles, including bokeh and face unlock. For a more upmarket feel, it uses 2.5D glass for both sides and the rear gets a reflective material which looks like the Mi Play.

As for the Redmi Note 7 itself, it has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

For performance, it is powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with 3/4/6GB of RAM and 32/64/128GB internal storage. The phone also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 256GB. Interestingly, Xiaomi stated the Note 7 supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology.

Apart from this, the new Redmi 7 Smartphone will be running on the latest Android 9 Pie Operating System. You get a pretty small notch on the Redmi Note 7 compared to the Notch on the Redmi Note 6 Pro and Redmi Note 5 Pro. The the Redmi Note 7 could be this smartphone.

Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Note 7 in three variants- 3GB+32GB, 4GB+64GB and 6GB+64GB.

We've earlier reported about Xiaomi's plans to spin-off Redmi as a new sub-brand and the launch of a possible high-end 48 MP flagship phone to do the honors. That's straight from mi.com/redminote7/, where they've taken their first big stand as Redmi alone.

The Redmi Note 7 has been priced way more aggressively than expected for the features it offers. Nonetheless, the device also supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0 with supported charging bricks.

On that note - yes, yes indeed, there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack in the mix.

For now, the phone has launched in China only.
