The Chinese manufacturer did not wait for the Mobile World Congress to unveil its new smartphone.
At CES 2019, Xiaomi proves with the Redmi Note 7 that you can combine solid configuration with a minimal price. For about 130 euros, we even get the most powerful cameras.
The Chinese Xiaomi has been so successful with his smartphone range Redmi that he decided to make it a full-fledged brand. The manufacturer has made this decision concrete by launching the first model, the Redmi Note 7.
Its first strong point is the presence of a 48-megapixel camera. It is not the first device to have such a great camera. However, the competition, including the Huawei Nova 4 and Honor View 20, requires an investment of at least 500 euros.
The Redmi Note 7 is sold in China under the 130 euro mark! This is the price of an entry level while it has the most potent sensor on the market.
Power Device at a small price
Do not believe that Xiaomi sacrificed the overall performance of the mobile in favor of the camera. The other components promise a mobile of good quality, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, a minimum of 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space.
The 48-megapixel camera comes with a 5-megapixel depth sensor. It features a 6.3-inch LCD screen, with a small notch for the 13-megapixel selfie camera. It incorporates a battery of 4000 mAh, and count a few extra euros for the fast charger, optional.
The fingerprint reader is positioned on the back, and it has a USB Type-C plug and a headphone jack.
This model will be offered in three versions. A first with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage at 999 yuan, or 128 euros. By moving to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, the price increases to 1,199 yuan, or 154 euros. Finally, for 6 GB of RAM, count 1,399 yuan, or 180 euros. The premium model, therefore, remains well below the 200 euro mark.
