Redmi Note 7 Pro will reportedly be powered by Snapdragon 675 SoC

“The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is expected to be the first smartphone to come with Snapdragon 675 SoC”

Xiaomi started the new year 2019 by making the Redmi series a separate brand and launching the first phone under the independent brand, Redmi Note 7. At the same event, it was revealed the Redmi Note 7 Pro with 48-megapixel camera will be coming in February, after the Spring Festival (February 5th). Now, some new details of the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro have emerged.

Rumours on Chinese social networking site Weibo claim Redmi Note 7 Pro could be the world’s first smartphone to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor. Notably, the chipset is fabricated on the 11nm process and was spotted on Antutu with a score that was better than that of Snapdragon 710. Xiaomi had previously announced it will launch a Snapdragon 675-powered handset in 2019, but has not confirmed the name of the device yet. 

Further, we already knew that the Redmi Note 7 Pro will be flaunting a new and improved rear camera. It was announced at last week’s Redmi Note 7 launch event that the upcoming ‘Pro’ model will feature a 48-megapixel Sony IMX 586 sensor. The Sony sensor was initially planned for the Redmi Note 7 but the company had to ditch it in favour of Samsung GM1 sensor because of supply chain constraints. With the Sony IMX 586 sensor, Redmi Note 7 Pro will be able to capture images with 48-megapixel resolution, as opposed to Redmi Note 7 that captures 12-megapixel images but interpolates to 48-megapixel.

Additionally, the rumours on Weibo claims that the Redmi Note 7 Pro price will start from RMB 1,499 (~Rs 15,800).
