Mumbai, Jan 31: Prior to the Redmi Note 7 launch event, there were rumours suggesting that there could be two handsets on display — the Redmi Note 7 and a higher specified Redmi Note 7 Pro. However, at the event, the Redmi Note 7 was the only handset to grace the stage, leaving the Note 7 Pro to have its own share in the limelight.
Now, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has dropped the biggest hint yet that the Redmi Note 7 Pro was in the works by asking Mi Fans what features they would like with the handset.
As per a report by GSMArena, one of the fans stated, "Omit the 3/32 GB version, go straight for 6/64 GB or 6/128 GB." And, of the suggestions, Lei Jun reposted this feature giving us a solid indication that the Redmi Note 7 Pro could come with either a 6GB/64GB or 6GB/128GB configuration.
As of now, details are slim regarding the specifications of the Redmi Note 7 Pro but rumours have suggested that it would arrive with a notched 6.4-inch display, a 4000mAh battery and possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC instead of an SD660 chipset. The camera found here is expected to be a 48MP shooter with a Sony IMX586 sensor.
Also, there is no indication on when the handset will be announced but previous rumours point at a February 15 announcement.
In related news, there are rumours that Xiaomi is preparing to launch a handset that’s dubbed the Redmi X under the newly conceived Redmi brand. This handset is said to be a budget device but will sport some high-end specifications.
The Redmi X is believed to arrive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC and the major feature here is that it will come sporting an in-display fingerprint sensor; much like the one OnePlus and Vivo utilise. Details are sketchy on this handset and as of now, it should be taken with a huge dose of sodium chloride. The Redmi Note 7 Pro is tipped to retail with a price tag of CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs. 15,800).
