The Redmi 7, an entry-level smartphone from the Xiaomi sub-brand, was spotted on China’s TENAA certification website recently, giving us a pretty good idea of what to expect inside and out when it makes its debut.
Now, someone has posted a leaked hands-on video of the unannounced phone, confirming many of its features and specifications. As clearly seen in the video, the Redmi 7 will come with a gradient backing, likely made of plastic, which isn’t surprising given the phone’s potentially bargain-basement price tag.

The back has dual rear cameras, with the main sensor supposedly being of the 12-megapixel variety. The secondary shooter likely serves as a depth sensor for bokeh shots. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera is said to be 8 megapixels. You’ll also find a fingerprint reader on the rear.
The front of the phone is quite interesting as well, with the Redmi 7 reportedly rocking a 6.26-inch, 1,520 x 720 LCD with a tiny notch at the top and small side bezels. The chin of the phone, however, is reminiscent of the Pocophone F1’s — chunky and curved at the edges. The video also shows Redmi sticking to a microUSB port for charging instead of adopting USB-C, as many other smartphone manufacturers have done.
Moving to the internals, the Redmi 7 might offer an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The base model will supposedly have 2GB RAM and 16GB of memory. A 3,900mAh battery is also part of the package, and it is not removable. Further, the Redmi 7 runs Android 9.0 Pie with Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 on top.
