Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 launched: Threat to other Budget smartphones

Harish Kumar

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 has been officially announced and would hit on the Indian market either by the end of January or in February 2019. The highlight of this handset is- it is the first smartphone to be launched with Snapdragon 660 SoC under approx. Rs. 10,000.

This handset is 2019's one of the best budget smartphones that comes with plenty of better aspects. Nevertheless, there are other smartphones priced reasonably under Rs. 15,000- which you can also consider as a second choice.

The Redmi Note 7 comes with the MIUI camera app with features such as AI scene detection, AI Portrait mode, AI Beauty mode and more. It gets the power from a 4000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology. It features Bluetooth 5, giving an advantage over connectivity options.

Whereas, there are other devices as well which will also not let you down in terms of features. Their attributes include- fast working fingerprint scanner, greater battery life, support of AR stickers for both rear and front cameras, Android One based on Stock Android, ability to shoot 4K videos etc.
