Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are buzzing on the news everywhere as the new flagship killer. Some are calling it the Poco F2. Based on the latest rumours, both Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are expected to hit the Indian markets by mid-July. Following these launches, we might see a new device from Xiaomi by the name Redmi 7 Pro. This will be a successor to the previously launched Redmi 6 Pro back in September last year. There is no doubt that it will be a similar budget offering with some improvements made on the Redmi 6 Pro.
This leak came in from China’s 3C authority website which revealed some minor details of this upcoming device. The model number M1906F9SC which is believed to be the Redmi 7 Pro spotted on 3C certification site. As per the 3C listing, the model number of adapter is MDY-09-EK, and the device carries support for standard 5V/2A (10W) charging.
Notably, two similar model number (except the last letter) M1906F9SH and M1906F9SG also passed EEC certification. Sadly, the certification listing has not revealed anything except Mi, Redmi, Xiaomi branding.
If Xiaomi follows last year’s naming strategy then this year we will get Redmi 7 Pro for Indian and Chinese Market while international users will get it as the stock Android-running Mi A3 Lite.
Now for the predecessor Redmi 6 Pro, we see that it was launched for Rs 10,999 and 12,999 for the 3GB and 4GB RAM variants respectively. Eventually, we saw a price on this device and now it is available for purchase for Rs 8,999 and Rs 9,999 for the 3GB and 4GB RAM variants respectively.
Redmi 6 Pro was the first notch display smartphone launched by Xiaomi. And we can expect something similar to last year’s 5.84-inch FHD+ 19:9 ratio display, from this new Redmi 7 pro. As for the processor, we had the Snapdragon 625 before, so for 7 Pro, we may get Snapdragon 710 or 712 SoC. Rumours also suggest that the Redmi 7 Pro phone will come with a 3,300mAh capacity battery.
On the Redmi 6 Pro, we had two lenses on the rear and one on the front with support for AI. It was a 12MP + 5MP setup on the rear side, and for the front, we had a 5MP sensor. However, we will see better lenses this year from the Redmi 7 Pro. We might even see a triple lens setup with a 48MP primary camera. Only time will be the answer to these new upcoming improved Redmi 6 Pro, that is the Redmi 7 Pro.
