The Redmi Note 7 is arriving next week in India, but many fans are waiting for the Pro variant of the hit smartphone. The Redmi CEO finally confirmed on Weibo the device is still coming next week with a 48 MP camera, but this time the sensor will be Sony IMX586 rather than the GM1 by Samsung.
The upcoming phone is expected to upgrade the chipset to Snapdragon 670 or 675. We also think it might have a fingerprint scanner under the display, but images released by the company CEO Lu Weibing see a sensor on the back panel. Other rumors point to 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
If all these specs become real, the Redmi Note 7 Pro will likely sport a heftier price tag than the $200 cost for the 4/64 GB Redmi Note 7. We’ve already seen numbers around CNY1,599 or $240 for a 6/64 GB Pro variant.
The rumors on the web is that Samsung started designing process in October, 2018 and modeled its M series (M10, M20) after Redmi Note 6 Pro (2018, October) and Realme 2 Pro (2018, October).
