Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7 to phase out in India and replaced by the Note 7S

The Note 7 will get phased out and soon Xiaomi will only sell the Note 7S as a cheaper alternative.


Xiaomi announced a new entry into the Redmi lineup on 20 May which was the Redmi Note 7S which started at a price of Rs 10,999. The main feature of the device is that it offers the 48 MP Sony IMX 586 sensor that was also seen on the Redmi Note 7 Pro (Review). However, this leaves a bit of a quandary for the Redmi Note 7 which happens to be selling at Rs 9,999 but doesn't have the 48 MP camera. Xiaomi is now fixing this situation.
