And just like that, the only confirmed Redmi smartphone that we’re waiting to become official is the one powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 flagship processor. For today, the Xiaomi sub-brand launched the Redmi 7 entry-level handset.

Most of the leaks are spot-on. The Redmi 7 features a notched — albeit smaller at 6.2 inches — screen, just like the higher-end Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro. It comes with 12- and 2-megapixel cameras on the back and an 8-megapixel camera for selfies. A rear-mounted fingerprint reader is included for unlocking the phone. There’s also a 4,00mAh battery and Android 9.0 Pie-based MIUI 10.

The Redmi 7 is the sub-brand’s first phone that uses Snapdragon 632, the same chip you’ll find inside the likes of the ASUS ZenFone Max M2 and Honor 8C.

The latter is still going to be unveiled in the Philippines, so we don’t know how much it will cost here. The ASUS model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, on the other hand, sells for P8,995 (around $171). We’re guessing the Redmi device with the same memory configuration will be cheaper locally, considering that the converted Chinese price is lower. Take note of the smartphone’s prices:

  • 2GB/16GB: ¥699 (P5,488 or $104)
  • 3GB/32GB: ¥799 (P6,272 or $119)
  • 4GB/64GB: ¥899 (P7,058 or $134)

The Redmi 7 will be available in China beginning March 26.
