Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 with 48-megapixel camera: Price and specs on Revu Philippines

Xiaomi PH teases Redmi Note 7… for a few minutes

In Phones by Alora Uy Guerrero1 Comment

It’s been almost two months since Xiaomi announced that Redmi is already an independent brand instead of just a phone series. Which means it’s been almost two months since the Redmi Note 7, the first product of the sub-brand, has become official in China.

(Update, March 20: It’s launched in the Philippines! Read Redmi Note 7 launched in PH with 18 months of warranty.)

Will the device — considered the cheapest smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor — ever arrive in the Philippines? Looks like it’s coming soon, as we saw Xiaomi Philippines posting a Redmi Note 7 teaser on Facebook at 8:30 p.m. today.

Unfortunately, the company took the teaser down after only a few minutes. But not before we took a screenshot of it.

The message clearly says, ‘Redmi Note 7 is coming’

Was it a teaser posted on the wrong day? Or were there details in the image that need to be corrected? We clearly don’t have an answer. We’re pretty sure that the release of the Redmi Note 7 is just around the corner, though. If we’d believe one of the members of an official Xiaomi group, the handset will be launched in a matter of days.

This snafu — if you can call it that — has happened on the day a listing for the Samsung Galaxy M20 has been spotted on ecommerce site Lazada Philippines.

The phone from Samsung’s new series is one of this Redmi’s main competition and will be introduced to the local market on March 5. It will supposedly get a P10,990 (roughly $212) price tag. The Redmi Note 7, on the other hand, starts at ¥999 (P7,728 or $149) in China.
