Xiaomi, which happens to be among the most popular Chinese smartphone makers currently, is set to launch the Redmi Note 7 Pro budget Android smartphone in its home market this week. Ahead of the launch event, the unannounced smartphone has been certified by TENAA.
The smartphone’s listing on the TENAA website has not only revealed its design but its complete spec sheet as well. Just as rumors had been suggesting, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is going to be nearly identical to the Redmi Note 7 visually. According to the smartphone’s listing on TENAA, the Redmi Note 7 Pro measures 159.2 x 75.2 x 8.1mm, exactly the same as the standard Redmi Note 7. On the front, the key design highlight will be the large 6.3-inch LCD display with a waterdrop notch and 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution.
When it comes to the camera hardware, the listing confirms the phone will have a dual-camera on the back with a 48MP primary sensor and a 13MP secondary sensor. The Redmi Note 7, in comparison, comes with only a 5MP resolution secondary sensor for depth-sensing. For some reason, however, the listing includes no information regarding the front-facing camera.
Moving on to the core specifications, the Redmi Note 7 Pro will be running on an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.0 GHz. While the TENAA listing does not reveal the name of the chip, rumors have suggested the handset would pack Qualcomm’s 11nm Snapdragon 675 SoC. Three memory variants have been revealed by TENAA: 3GB + 32GB, 4GB + 64GB, and 6GB + 128GB. For further expansion, the phone will include a microSD card slot.
Some of the other key features revealed by the Chinese certification body include an IR blaster, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and Android Pie operating system. The phone will come in multiple color options including black, pink, white, red, blue, green, gray, and purple. As mentioned earlier, the smartphone will be unveiled in China later this week.
