so 2900mAh battery is so 2014 or even beginning times of smartphones. screen size is ok if thin bezels, i hope it fits in pocket and can be used by one hand without need to be bighand. but battery... you should be able to use at least 8 hour continuously screen on with bad internet connection (weak signal consumes more power) and after that should have enough power to use gps maps (with weak signal) to make sure you not get lost and also have enough power to make some calls. i bet, 2900mAh will be drained after 6 hour screen on and weak signal internet roaming and you got no power to call taxi.
Nokiax, 18 Dec 2018I am not talking MTK chip.. Redmi 5 battery 3300 14nm 83hr Redmi 4 battery 4100 28nm ... morebut 4100mAh battery with 14nm would give much more hours, still would be better. redmi 3 had 107 hour endurance, wouldnt be nice to have redmi 7 with 4100mAh battery and something like 200 hour endurance so you can be on internet and scroon on 8+ hour continuously and after that still make some phone calls? hey! some flights or train trips take much longer and you dont have sockets to charge your phone. and what else you do? cheap internet roaming and play on internet full trip and you end up with empty battery then you need to call a taxi! not nice to avoid using phone just to make sure you can call taxi after.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2018Helio P22 use 12nm, not 28nmI am not talking MTK chip..
Redmi 5 battery 3300 14nm 83hr
Redmi 4 battery 4100 28nm 80hr
With 14nm smaller battery gives you longer battery life
Many details are given but are pure guesses for now. Wait until formal release of this phone from Xiaomi.

Arvind7955, 17 Dec 2018Waiting for a smartphone with 4.5-5" screen, Great camera and a type C port. Don't care much a... moreExactly. We see at least two new phones every week. Not one of them thinks, "Hey, along with our infinite range between 6 and 6.5 inches, let's have one between 4.5 and 5."
It's big enough to consume content, small enough to fit in a palm and a pocket as you would expect off a device that has 'mobile' and 'phone' as its description. Not 'television', 'monitor', 'slab', 'slate', 'shovel'.
Would a single phone with 4.7 16:9 720p screen with no rounded edges, no notches and minimal bezels 70 to 75 percent screen to body ratio, or enough to house nav buttons in their portfolio plummet an OEM to bankruptcy?
This phone comes with 48 mega pixel and Snapdragon 675 and it is not teardrop notch it comes with hole camera
Lukas17, 17 Dec 2018Sony XZ4-mini. As someone else pointed out already, way too costly.
Nokiax, 17 Dec 2018Coz of dicreasing nm LPP. 28 to 14 nm LPP Well Redmi 6 have12nm processor and 3000mah battery, and only 5.45" screen (with same HD + resolution). And that phone is not good, i guess Redmi 7 will be even worse. But for 100$ price, i guess nobody care to much for spec, battery, build etc..
Nokiax, 17 Dec 2018I was thought. I am only left on earth who like compact phone's with good hardware. Nope. Bought XZ1 Compact 2 months ago, butI had like 3 phones to pick. S8/S9 are kinda narrow but 4/4 in my case had pinkish screens.
Lukas17, 17 Dec 2018Sony XZ4-mini. Lol, In Sony xz4 mini price.
He can purchase redmi device's for ten years..

You spelled "cutting corner" wrong :D
Redmi 4X was 4100mAH with 5" screen. Now it got bigger screen but with almost 30% less battery.
