It’s official: The Redmi 7, the upcoming entry-level smartphone from the Xiaomi sub-brand, will be launched on March 18 in its native China. This according to an image shared by Redmi general manager Lu Weibing.
The phone will debut alongside the Redmi Note 7 Pro, which was recently announced for the Indian market.
The image posted on Weibo also reveals the Redmi 7’s front and back design, although it’s hardly a secret at this point after a leaked hand-on video of the device pretty much showed the same thing — and much more. It confirms the phone’s teardrop-style at the top of the screen, as well as the dual-array camera system on the back and the physical fingerprint sensor.

It should come in 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM options, with up to 64GB of expandable storage. Other specs include a 3.5mm headphone jack and an IR blaster for controlling your TV and home appliances.
The Redmi 7’s priced is rumored to start at around ¥900 (roughly P7,046 or $134) in China. It might come in a bevy of colors, including black, blue, green, pink, purple, red, and white. We suppose we’ll know for sure soon enough.
