“Redmi Note 7 with 4GB + 128GB and 6GB + 128GB configurations were hinted at in a recent poll by Xiaomi CEO Bin Lin”
While Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Redmi Note 7 in India, it could be bringing a new variant of the phone in China. The company launched its first 48-megapixel smartphone under the independent Redmi brand earlier this month. The phone is the successor to the Redmi Note 5 (review) and is already doing well in flash sales due to its popularity, price, and features. Now, it looks like Xiaomi will soon be launching a new variant of the Redmi Note 7. This variant could feature as much as 128GB of internal storage.
In the week after the launch of the Redmi Note 7 in China, Xiaomi’s CEO Lin Bin took to Weibo to ask users about what variant of the phone is most popular. The poll included the current available variants such as 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 64GB storage. Apart from these, two unreleased variants were also included in the list, which had 4GB RAM + 128GB storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage.
The most popular variant out of all these turned out to be the one with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. As per the poll, this Redmi Note 7 variant would be priced at RMB 1,599. The other variant with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, which was the second most wanted model, could be priced at RMB 1,499. Now, the Product Director for Xiaomi, Wang Teng Thomas, has gone on Weibo to state that something exciting related to the Redmi Note 7 would be announced soon.
It is very much possible that Xiaomi could announce these two new variants of the Redmi Note 7 in China. The company is yet to launch the Redmi Note 7 Pro in China, which will feature a Sony made 48-megapixel rear camera as opposed to the Samsung ISOCELL unit in the standard model. Xiaomi also recently started teasing the Redmi Note 7 smartphone in India. We can expect the new phone to be launched next month in the country. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 660 chipset and has a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch, a dual-rear camera setup, 13-megapixel front camera, and a 4,000mAh battery.
