    Redmi Note 7

    The Redmi Note 7 launched. It has the Snapdragon 660 chipset based on the Kryo 260 CPU. The performance of the device compared to the competition is 10 percent more.

    Perspective

    Phones such as the Honor View 20 and Galaxy A8S which cost Rs 40,000 use the 48 MP Sony sensor. Bringing it in on a budget phone is quite exemplary. The sensor is 27.5 percent bigger than what we see on the iPhone XS Max which starts at Rs 1 lakh. That isn't to say that the Note 7 Pro will click better pictures than the iPhone XS Max. 

  • 12:44 (IST)

    Redmi Note 7 Pro Camera

    48 MP primary camera + 5 MP depth sensor. There has been a lot of hype around the primary sensor of the device. And low and behold the phone comes with the Sony IMX586 sensor. Quite unbelievable to be honest.
