Both smartphones provide impressive hardware, beautiful layouts, and fast charging at very competitive price points. The Redmi Note 7 begins at a price in India of Rs. 9,999 and will probably be available from March 6 onwards, whereas the stronger Redmi Note 7 Pro has a starting cost of Rs. We managed for a brief hands-on experience and spent a while with these two new smartphones in the launch event, and here are our first impressions.
The Redmi Note 7 and also the Redmi Note 7 Pro are available in three colour options each
Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 7
Xiaomi has really gone for unapologetically flashy designs for these two new smartphones, also has introduced gradient patterns, which are now en vogue, to the Redmi series. The Redmi Note 7 Pro comes from Space Black, Nebula Red as well as Neptune Blue colour options, using the latter flaunting an eye-catching gradient end — something Xiaomi calls Aura Design. On the flip side, the Redmi Note 7 has a body that is reflective and comes in a understated Onyx Black color option as well as Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue variations. Both reflect light off the rear panels and look amazing. Xiaomi has certainly gone with a bold color palette, and also this bet has paid off handsomely.
There is of course plenty of substance to choose all this flash. Both Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 7 attribute a coating of 2.5D curved-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on their front in addition to rear panels, and a P2i hydrophobic nano-coating is promised to protect the smartphones against accidental liquid spills. Xiaomi asserts that both versions have reinforced corners and also feature watertight seals beneath the button regions and in some other spots. Except for the colours in their glassy rear panels, the two Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 7 have similar profiles with the ports and buttons at exactly the same places.
At the right of both versions will be the quantity and power buttons, which provide decent tactile feedback and do not feel mushy. The left sides host each phone’s hybrid dual-SIM + microSD card slot. The two Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 7 have 3.5millimeter headset and IR emitters on top, and USB Type-C interfaces on the base flanked on either side grilles. Overall, we found that the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro to be good-looking, hardy, and easy to handle — a blend of attributes that buyers will certainly appreciate.
The front fascias of both the Redmi Note 7 along with the Redmi Note 7 Pro have been controlled by 6-3-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) LTPS In-Cell displays with 19.5:9 aspect ratios. The panels are claimed to be TUV-certified for decreasing blue light exposure. Both phones have somewhat thick chins and tiny notches –“Dot Notches”, in Xiaomi’s words sits at the top. The screens’ color reproduction and brightness looked fine in our short time spent with both of these telephones, but we found them somewhat too reflective, particularly under bright indoor light.
