“The Redmi Note 7 Pro is probably the best mid-ranger to have in India”
After a long wait, the Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone is now official. Xiaomi unveiled the new phone at an event earlier today and it is quite an impressive device. Of course, we pretty much knew all the details of the phone thanks to the numerous leaks, renders and reports. However, we were eagerly waiting to find out the Redmi Note 7 Pro price in India and to see how it compares to the other popular models in the market.
Xiaomi has priced the Redmi Note 7 Pro very competitively and in this post, we will compare the device with two phones in the similar price bracket. We will take a look at the Redmi Note 7 Pro price in India and specifications to see if it competes well with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy M30 and the Galaxy A30 (first impression).
Redmi Note 7 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy M30 vs Galaxy A30 price in India
If you’re on a tight budget, then the new Xiaomi model is the best option out of the three. The Redmi Note 7 Pro price in India is Rs 13,999 for the base variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. If you want 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, then you will have to spend Rs 16,999. That’s not bad at all.
Compared to the Redmi phone, the Samsung Galaxy M30 price in India starts at Rs 14,990 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM variant. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant costs Rs 17,990. Coming to the Galaxy A30, this phone is available with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage at Rs 16,990.
Redmi Note 7 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy M30 vs Galaxy A30 specifications
Alright, now let’s look at what you get for the money. Once again, the Redmi Note 7 Pro appears to be the best value for money here, but we will let the hardware talk.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro specifications include a 6.3-inch FHD+ display that comes with a tiny notch at the top. The back of the phone is also glass, available in three colour options. The phone is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back. On the other hand, both the Samsung Galaxy M30 and the Galaxy A30 feature 6.4-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a U-shaped notch. All three devices feature a fingerprint scanner at the back.
Coming to the internals, the Redmi Note 7 Pro has a Snapdragon 675 processor that’s paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. The Galaxy M30 features the Samsung made Exynos 7904 chipset paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. Finally, the Galaxy A30 has an Exynos 7885 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. In terms of performance, the Snapdragon 675-powered Xiaomi handset should be more powerful than the Galaxy buddies, but we will detail that in our full review.
In the camera department, the Samsung Galaxy has the most number of cameras at the back, but once again, the Redmi Note 7 Pro has the best sensor. The Redmi phone comes with a primary 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor, which is paired with a 5-megapixel depth unit. For selfies, there’s a 13-megapixel shooter up front.
Samsung has included a triple-rear camera setup on the Galaxy M30, which includes a main 13-megapixel f/1.9 sensor, a 5-megapixel wide sensor, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The Galaxy A30 features a dual camera setup at the back with a primary 16-megapixel f/1.7 sensor and a 5-megapixel depth unit. On the front, both the phones come with a 16-megapixel selfie camera.
As for battery, Redmi Note 7 Pro gets a 4,000mAh cell that supports Quick Charge 4 via the USB Type-C port. The phone runs Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 out of the box. The Galaxy A30 also comes with a 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast charge support. However, the Galaxy M30 wins the battery comparison thanks to its larger 5,000mAh cell, which also supports 15W fast charging.
