It is unclear if the company will actually drop the Xiaomi branding from the device when it launched it in the market or if the internal structure of the company along with the sub-brands will remain unchanged. Considering that the company has created Redmi into its own standalone brand in China, it won’t be surprising if the company follows suit.

Talking about the specifications of the upcoming device, the Redmi Note 7 comes with a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with FHD+ (1,080×2,340 pixels) resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and waterdrop-like notch.

The device is powered by Snapdragon 660 with up to 6GB RAM, and up to 64GB internal storage. The device comes with a dedicated microSD card slot that users can use to expand storage with cards up to 256GB capacity.

Moving to the highlight of the device, it comes with dual camera setup on the back with a 48-megapixel primary sensor along and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor for depth mapping. The front comes with a 13-megapixel camera sensor for selfies. In terms of connectivity, the device comes a 4g VoLTE-enabled dual nano-SIM slot, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm audio socket, GPS, Bluetooth v5.0, Infrared, FM radio, and USB Type-C port.
