Xiaomi recently launched three Redmi smartphones in India – Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, and the entry-level Redmi Go. Now it seems that the company is gearing up to launch a few more Redmi devices with one of them as early as this month.
As per leakster Ishan Agarwal, who has a decent record with leaks, Xiaomi will launch the Redmi 7 in India sometime this month. The affordable smartphone was launched in China just last month. While there is no official word yet from Xiaomi, the leakster is confident that the device is coming later this month.
As you all would expect, Xiaomi is soon launching the Redmi 7 in India. It will also be launching the Redmi Y3 after that, probably next month or so. And that's not all, I believe they are preparing another budget smartphone with model code C3F which is probably Redmi 7A. #Redmi pic.twitter.com/XgWLkMkAr9
