In a surprise development, Xiaomi India began teasing the launch of a new Redmi Note 7S smartphone last week.
This company has already been known to sell Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro, it was difficult to understand why it wants to bring another phone to confuse customers.
Now, following the formality of the Redmi Note 7S earlier today, Xiaomi has probably seen the lack of a 48-megapixel camera in the Indian Redmi Note 7 as a weakness that could take its toll.
Xiaomi has now linked this gap to the aggressively priced Redmi Note 7S, which is essentially the same smartphone that launched on the Redmi Note 7 China.
We were able to spend some time on Monday with the Redmi Note 7S ₹ 10,499 and here are the first impressions of the new smartphone.
If you’ve seen any model of Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 ₹ 11,299-series, you’ve seen them all.

The Redmi Note 7S sports the same design as the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro. Barring the lack of a gradient finish on the back of the Redmi Note 7S, the three Redmi Note 7-Series phones look the same, which is not a bad thing.
Xiaomi managed to create an elegant and premium looking phone with Redmi Note,, and it’s understandable for companies using the same design.
The use of glass on both the front and the back makes this phone a bit fragile, so customers should be careful when handling the Redmi Note 7S. The glass contained in the smartphone is also a fingerprint magnet, but the smug marks are easily wiped out. Shaomi says that the phone body has a P2I nano coating that makes it splash-proof.
Xiaomi uses a 6.3-inch full-HD + screen with a waterdrop-style notch (or dot note, as the company calls it). Since this is the same display panel that uses Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro, we have no complaints with the screen. The color reproduction is good, and the screen is bright enough to be visible under direct sunlight.
The main highlight of this new smartphone is of course its 48 megapixel primary rear camera.
Although Xiaomi has not officially announced the actual primary camera sensor used on the Redmi Note 7S at the time of its launch, the product listing on the company’s website confirms that it is indeed the same Samsung Isocall Bright GM1 sensor that can be found in the Chinese version of the Redmi Note 7.
This 48 Megapixel shooter with 5-megapixel sensor to create dual-camera setup on the back Asked by the sensor has been added.
It is likely that we will probably see some controversy among Shaomi fans regarding which of the better sensors, the Samsung Isokel Bright GM1 or the Sony IMX 586 (used in the Redmi Note 7 Pro).
In our brief experience with the new Redmi Note 7S, its camera seemed to take decent pictures, except that they were a bit too spread for our liking.
On the front, the Redmi Note 7S is the same 13-megapixel selfie shooter as the other Redmi Note 7-series phones, and it adopts beautiful looks under nice lighting conditions. We will keep an eye on all the cameras in this new smartphone in our in-depth review.
The Redmi Note 7ST is powered by the eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SC, the same processor that Xiaomi used for the Redmi NoteFore, in our short time with this phone, it responded quickly to everything we dropped. There were no signs of lag, which is not surprising since the Redmi Note 7 with the same Snapdragon 660 and the same amount of RAM (4GB) worked when we reviewed it.
Among other features, Xiaomi has supported this phone with a finger fingerprint sensor, a USB Type-C port, a hybrid dual-SIM tray, an IR blaster and 4G LTE. There is also AI Face Unlock.
As an addition, the company packs a 4,000mAh battery as well as supporting Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4 standard. It all starts with Rs. 10,999 for variants with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage and the price is also Rs. 12,999 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage
Infinitely crowded to get ahead of its competition, Xiaomi is hoping that the Redmi Note 7S will give buyers more options to choose from.
Upgraded primary rear camera is the only difference between the new Redmi Note 7S and Redmi Note 7 It It is a little extra Rs. 1,000, but will this phone reduce Redmi Note 7 Pro’s application? Read the Gadgets 360 as a full review of the Redmi Note 7S coming soon.
