Features of Redmi Note 7:
In terms of design and looks, the all-new Redmi Note 7 has a gradient glass body design similar to the recently launched Mi Play smartphone. The front part (i.e. screen) has minimum bezels with a waterdrop notch. On the back panel, there’s a dual camera setup along with a LED flash. The fingerprint sensor and “Redmi by Xiaomi” branding is also located on the back.
The Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3 inches Full HD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 1080×2340 pixels resolution, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor along with the Adreno 512 GPU for graphics. It comes with 3GB/4GB/6GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD card. Sadly, there’s no separate slot for microSD card. If you want to use a memory card for storage expansion then you can use only 1 SIM because the other SIM is a hybrid one (either SIM or MicroSD card).
In terms of camera, the Redmi Note 7 has dual rear-facing cameras including a 48MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5MP secondary sensor. This camera module is equipped with a LED flash. On the front, it has a 13MP selfie camera with features like AI portrait mode, background blur, AI smart beauty, facial recognition function, countdown self-timer, and HDR.
The dual-SIM handset comes with the latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system. It is backed by a huge 4000 mAh battery with support for Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0 (fast charging). The phone also has an infrared remote control feature that can easily operate televisions, air conditioners, CD/DVD players, etc. Another interesting thing about the device is that the company is offering 18 months of warranty.
