Xiaomi’s Redmi 7 Teased – $104 For A Snapdragon 632, IR Blaster, 3.5mm & 4000mAh Battery

Xiaomi has just revealed the Redmi Note 7 Pro to the masses earlier this month. Following the release, anticipation for Xiaomi’s upcoming Redmi 7 lineup has begun as Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun, has tipped off a few details regarding the upcoming Redmi 7 after revealing its price tag.

Lei Jun has revealed that the upcoming Redmi 7 would start at just CNY 700 (US $104) and would have an additional variant that would go for CNY 800 (US $119). Furthermore, he revealed how the Redmi brand is “proud” of featuring the headphone jack, IR blaster, and 4000mAh battery.

While leaks may have been vague about the Redmi 7, so far leaks have suggested that the Redmi 7 would feature a Snapdragon 632/710 SoC, 3/4GB RAM, 32GB / 64GB internal storage, an HD+ display and more. Additional details regarding the device include the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack, a large 4000mAh battery, a physical fingerprint scanner, a dual camera setup at its rear and an IR-blaster to go along with it.

And while the specifications may not look a whole lot on paper, the device definitely seems to be enticing, to say the least. Let’s not forget that we’re looking at a $100 device given the special features Xiaomi’s adding to the box.

And while Xiaomi is “proud” of the inclusion of the 3.5mm headphone jack and IR blaster, it definitely seems to be a feature that they’ve included for business reasons that complement their other range of devices that require IR controls to function. And while the Snapdragon 710 definitely seems to be sketchy, if Xiaomi pulls this off, it could be a game-changer nonetheless given that the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro feature the much faster Snapdragon 675 SoC under the hood. However, we could be getting too far ahead of ourselves right now.

What we’re keen to see if whether Xiaomi’s Redmi brand is planning to keep these features a staple moving forward given that the Mi brand seems to ignore the 3.5mm headphone jack outright. Following our correct speculation of the premature release of the Mi 9, can’t wait to see what the Poco F2 would come with now that Xiaomi would have sufficient time to reap in the sales of the Mi 9 family before the device arrives in late August, this year.
