As for an appointment with a beautiful girl we immediately put live with the China to attend the official presentation of the new device of the new flagship by Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 7. Exactly, for those who still have doubts this is the name of the brand new device just launched, leaving aside, as some rumors suggested, the advent of Redmi 2 Pro. The successor of the Redmi 6 Pro it is really surprising and presents some pretty good surprises ... especially the price! THE'hardware on board this jewel is enviable from other more famous brands Lei Jun, who presented the smartphone a few minutes ago, did not fail to make comparisons with competitors.
Redmi Notes 7: official presentation of the new flagship by Xiaomi
Before starting the presentation of the device Lei Jun he wanted to start by introducing the new one General Manager of Redmi. This is Lu Weibing, former president of G, who in addition to holding this position for Redmi he will also be vice president of the entire Xiaomi group reporting everything to the co-founder and president Lin Bin. So change of chairs for Xiaomi concurrent with the presentation of the Redmi Note 7: it is not a case, given that theLu Weibing's experience in the field of overseas smartphone market is really unprecedented. Does Xiaomi have any paper on the table for the market outside of China? We'll see.
Returning to the presentation, the CEO of Xiaomi Lei Jun immediately after the introduction of the new GM of Redmi has reviewed the history of the independent brand very briefly: born the 31 Jun of 2013, this company immediately saw success at home thanks toexceptional quality-price ratio ranking first in the ranking in the Chinese market of mobile devices mid-range. In just 5 years, as the data show, the products Redmi they have reached one share of exported units equal to 278 million. In addition to this the CEO presented the new brand under which the products will come out Redmi as always, simple and essential. The particular thing is that he said, as we see in the pictures, the words Almente almente literally "national cell phone": that is the beginning of a new era for telephony in China? This really hopes so much Lei Jun that as a good Chinese it is very patriotic.
We do not lose ourselves in talk, however, and move on to the actual presentation of the protagonist, the Redmi Note 7. Of photos we have proposed many, including leaks and officers, so we decided to put a few: certainly the internet in the coming days will be full. The following are the key features:
Design and measures
- SIZES: 159.21 75.21 x x 8.1mm for 186 g;
- Display: 6.3"With a drop of water for a screen Full HD + from 2340 x 1080 pixels and 19.5: 9 aspect ratio;
- Brightness: equal to 450 nits, so a device really very well done with regard to the screen;
- Protection: as we saw in the videos that are shooting, the glass of this device it is super resistant and heel proof. It is a glass 5th generation Gorilla Glass that bears hallucinating stress that allows one 4 resistance times greater than normal;
- Construction: 2.5D as we are used to, with colors Like Dream Fantasy, Twilight Gold, Fantasy Blue e Bright Black. The peculiarity of this Redmi Note 7 in the back it is that the color, depending on the light, changes as we have also seen for the 8 Lite Mi. The size of its side frames is reduced to 1,95 mm e il Chin of the device, the thickness in the lower part so to speak, it is not very often for the joy of many.
Processor, RAM and ROM and other technical specifications
Teasingly joking around those who wanted a processor Snapdragon 845 on board Redmi Note 7, Lei Jun he reiterated that it would not have been possible because the price would have risen too much and it would not have made it competitive. This is why we opted for a very good one Snapdragon 660, but not any one. In fact this SoC is overclocked at 2.2GHz unlike the competitors Oppo R15 and Vivo X21. The comparisons have been wasted and even Lei Jun he proposed i Antutu scores of this Snapdragon 660: the score of 144,599 is also superior to the Kirin 710 (which we remember being on board the Honor 8X). In short, a really good choice is to overclock the chip, as superb performance is guaranteed. Also regarding the GPU one speaks of one Adreno 512.
With regard to the RAM we have to choose between respectively 3GB 32GB, 4GB 64GB and 6GB 64GB but do not worry about the the memory since it is expandable thanks to a dedicated microSD slot. An attack is also present USB type-C that supports 4.0 Quick Charge; the battery is a monumental one 4000 mAh and will be provided together with the Redmi a charger from 10W, but separately one can be purchased from 18W that decreases the charging times from 2 hours and 5 minutes to 1 now and 43 minutes.
As for the other features is also present a classic headphone jack from 3.5mm and an infrared sensor that supports 14 activity types, all related to the Mi ecosystem: we talk about a dialogue between smartphones and air conditioners, rather than smart light bulbs, smart TVs or PCs.
The point that so many were waiting for. The main camera is from 48 megapixel but we also know what the sensor which allows all this: it is a CMOS Samsung GM1 with an f / 1.8 aperture and a pixel size from 1.6μm (4 pixels combined in 1). Also in this case the comparisons have wasted since the direct competitors have cameras from maximum 20 megapixel. This camera is assisted by one second from 5 megapixel that, as with other devices, helps with the focus. For what concerns the front sensor, that of the selfie camera, we have an 13 megapixel. Obviously all cameras are provided with AI, so there is no need to worry about focusing, filters and so on: the algorithms are the ones we know from the Mi Mix 3, plus there are only megapixels.
In the photographs you can not see very well but the comparison between Redmi Notes 7, Honor8X and 10 shows that the camera of the first device captures more details such as the lettering on the road signs or the newspaper in the first case.
To finish, the price. Many of you have tried to guess, based on your competitors' prices, how much this device cost. Well, let's reveal the secret:
- 3 GB RAM + 32 GB ROM - 999 Yuan (127 € at current exchange rate)
- 4 GB RAM + 64 GB ROM - 1,199 Yuan (152 € at current exchange rate)
- 6 GB RAM + 64 GB ROM - 1,399 Yuan (178 € at current exchange rate)
The release date in China is set for the 15 January at 10.00. The prices are not competitive but are record, considering what we have on board this device! So this time Xiaomi, or rather Redmi, it is really outdated. What do you think about it? Are you going to buy it when it arrives here?
