Xiaomi’s much beloved budget smartphone range, Redmi has released two new models to its line-up, and based on the specs alone, they could give smartphones from various price points a serious run for their money.
The Redmi 7 and Redmi Note 7 were announced yesterday (19 March), with prices for the former starting from RM499 and the latter starting from RM679. In this aspect, this means they’re equivalent, if not even more attractively priced than their predecessors, Redmi 6 and Redmi Note 6, which were priced from RM499 and RM849 respectively.
Now, what kind of specs can you expect with this price tag? Quite a decent bunch, as it turns out. In a glance, here are the most outstanding characteristics of the Redmi Note 7.
- 48MP + 5MP Rear Dual Camera
- 6.3″ FHD + Dot Drop Display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor
- 4,000 mAh high-capacity battery
- Corning Gorilla Glass 5 front and rear casing
The Redmi 7 is no small fry either, packing a solid punch with these specs:
- 6.26″ HD+ and Dot Drop Display
- 12MP + 2MP Dual AI Rear Camera
- 4,000 mAh high-capacity battery
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor
- Corning Gorilla Glass 5 front casing
Each phone comes in three colours too. The Redmi Note 7 will be available in Neptune Red, Nebula Red and Space Black (astronomy fans are going to have a field day with these!):
As for the Redmi 7, it will be sold in these colour variants:
At a glance, when compared with other smartphones in its range, the Redmi Note 7 appeared to be top of its class. In terms of resolution, display, processor, rear camera, and RAM + storage, it is equal to, if not more well-equipped than Huawei’s Nova 3i and Samsung’s A7.
It also comes with an 18-month long warranty, which according to Malaysia and Singapore country manager Allen An, is a testament to the confidence they have in the durability and quality of the product.
Starting March 27 (Wednesday), both phones will be available for sale exclusively via the official Xiaomi Official Store on Lazada. They will also be sold via Maxis, Shopee, DirectD and Urban Republic, though exact dates have yet to be disclosed.
Here’s the full price list for both models:
Redmi Note 7:
- 3GB + 32GB: RM679
- 4GB + 64GB: RM799
- 4GB + 128GB: RM949
- 2GB + 16GB: RM499
- 3GB + 32GB: RM599
