The phone could come as a superior option of the India Redmi Note 7 variant that arrived alongside the Redmi Note 7 Pro earlier this year.
To recall, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 Pro as its first 48-megapixel camera phone in India back in late February. The smartphone was launched alongside the India-variant of the Redmi Note 7 with a starting price of Rs. 13,999 for the base 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant.
Redmi Note 7S is likely to sit between the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 7 to attract new customers. Details around the price and specifications of the Redmi Note 7S are yet to be revealed. However, considering the company’s previous records, it would tease some bits and pieces through its social media channels in the coming days.
