Xiaomi has already hinted that it is planning to launch its latest Redmi-branded smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 in India in the coming weeks.

There is no indication on what the company is planning to set the price of the device. But considering that the company did not launch the Redmi Note 6 in India, it is likely that it may start from anywhere between Rs 11,000-13,000.

The information about the device launching on February 12 was initially revealed by 91Mobiles. The report also included what appears to be an official poster about the launch event of the device. According to the poster, the company is planning to launch the device at an event in New Delhi. The poster also revealed with the slogan that the company is going with for the launch of the device, “Apna time aayega”. The Managing Director for Xiaomi India and Global Vice President of the company, Manu Kumar Jain had already hinted at the slogan while announcing that it is bringing the device to India almost two weeks back.
