So far, the introduction of the Redmi Note 7 has been successful and now the Redmi Note 7S has been announced. However, don’t be too excited about it as the phone is basically the same phone as the global Note 7. Yes; you it’s true.
What do you get when you launch the Redmi Note 7 in India but with a 12 MP dual camera instead of a 48 MP cam like everywhere else, and then decide to launch another model that has a 48 MP camera to pacify Indians?! Yes; the Redmi Note 7S.
I will never understand why smartphone manufacturers enjoy this sort of confusion. All of this would have been unnecessary if the Indian Redmi Note 7 had been the same as everyone else’s Note 7.
What has happened after the Redmi Note 7 launch in India is that Indians have been hunting for the global version, the one with the 48 MP camera. Quite a number of Indians are clearly displeased with the 12 MP + 2 MP camera on the model being sold to them.
Why did Xiaomi think Indians would be happy with a 12 MP dual camera when everyone else in the world got the 48 MP dual camera? And why only India?
What to expect from Redmi Note 7S
Apart from the 48 MP dual camera being added, there is no other info out there yet, but I do not expect that it will be any different from the global Note 7.
Redmi India calls it the “SUPER Redmi Note 7”, but that may just be marketing copy. We will have all the details in a week.
Come May 20, 2019, we will have two versions of the Redmi Note 7 – the global and the Indian. And now, the Redmi Note 7S will arrive, and it will essentially be the same as the Redmi Note 7 global version.
Why this from Xiaomi? Please if you understand, share your thought with us.
