Following its debut, the Redmi Note 7 bagged a lot of attention in the e-hub courtesy of its dual tone gradient finish, glass-encased body, big battery backup and a 48 MP primary camera, which is hard to find in budget Android smartphones. The Redmi Note series is quite popular in India, and Xiaomi to mothball this slot teased the device, which is set to debut in India this month.
While reports back then pointed that the Redmi Note 7 might launch in the country this month, a fresh report now suggests that the launch may have been postponed to March. According to MySmartPrice, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 India launch has been delayed to next month, however, the report didn’t mention a specific date. As mentioned earlier, Xiaomi is already teasing the Redmi Note 7 since last month. To create hype among its user-base, Xiaomi India’s head Manu Jain even showcased the smartphone to the Mi Fans in Bengaluru last week.

Alongside the Redmi Note 7, Xiaomi is expected to introduce its first Android Go smartphone, the Redmi Go as well. The entry-level smartphone was made official for a reported price of EUR 80, which is around Rs 6,400 after conversion.
Coming back to the Redmi Note 7, the phone is expected to be priced between Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000. The phone was announced in China at a price tag of CNY 999 (around Rs 10,000) for the base variant with 3 GB RAM. If Xiaomi brings the Redmi Note 7 to India at a similar price point, the phone will compete against budget smartphones from popular brands like Realme and even Samsung's latest budget Galaxy M series.
As far as other specifications are concerned, the Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. It sports a dual camera array at the back with a 48 MP primary sensor and a 5 MP secondary sensor. Up front, it has a 13 MP AI-enabled camera for shooting selfies. Under the glass hood sits the capable mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. The Redmi Note 7 supports QuickCharge 4.0 and has a USB-C port for charging and data transfer.
