Redmi Note 7 Pro Specifications

For the design and display of the phone, Xiaomi has gone for something called "aura design". The display is a 6.3-inch FHD+ Dot Notch LTPS in-cell display. Bezels are restricted to 1.9 mm. Sunlight display and Reading modes have been retained. The phone also has 2.5D curved glass on the front and back. The Redmi Note 7 Pro is powered by the all-new Snapdragon 675 SoC from Qualcomm.

The phone comes with a dual rear camera system equipped with a 48 MP Sony IMX586 sensor and 5 MP secondary sensor.

The Sony sensor is 27.5 percent bigger than what we see on the iPhone XS Max which starts at a lakh. But that isn't to say that the Note 7 Pro will click better pictures than the iPhone XS Max.

Xiaomi’s very own Super Pixel technology is used here. It combines 4 pixels to make one, large 1.6μm pixel for detailed images even in darker conditions.

The phone will have a handheld night photography mode as well. Also, there is a 4K recording @30 fps with EIS now on the Note 7 Pro rear cameras.

The Redmi Note 7 Pro runs on MIUI 10 based on Android Pie out of the box and it already has the enhanced MIUI system optimization protocols to give you 10 percent faster system responsiveness, or so Xiaomi claims.
