Features of the most basic Xiaomi

After many weeks waiting for Xiaomi's proposal for the entry range or low range, we have finally seen the new one announced in China Redmi 7. This is the second terminal of the now sub-brand of Xiaomi, Redmi.

Previously we saw the Redmi Note 7, which we have analyzed, and the older brother, the Redmi Note 7 Pro that has also been presented today for China but will not arrive in Spain, at least for now. It seems that Redmi 7 will be available, in the future, in our country.

However, except for the processor, it is a device that closely resembles the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite, although with a renewed design and notch.

A tuning in design

The Redmi 6 is a mobile that has been with us for some time, but not as much as we might think. If we look at it, we see that there has been something aesthetically outdated and that in recent months the mobile design line has changed a lot.

The new Redmi 7 offers a somewhat cleaner front than its predecessor, with an elongated 19: 9 ratio screen and a water drop shaped notch, like the Xiaomi Mi 9. Yes, although the edges are excessive, they are not as small as in more expensive models.

In the rear area we have a double camera and a fingerprint sensor, which this time is not obvious.

Power and connectivity

Redmi has implemented in this Redmi 7 the Snapdragon 632, a processor that replaces the classic Snapdragon 625. There will be three variants depending on the RAM and internal memory, with 2 + 16 GB, 3 + 32 GB and 4 + 64 GB .

All three will use the same 6.26-inch screen with a 19: 9 ratio and HD + resolution, 1520 x 720 px. This will be especially relevant since the battery stays in the 4000 mAh and has fast charging of 5V / 2A, although not USB C port. This is one of the few Xiaomi models that still uses the microUSB.

The front camera is 8 Mpx and has software blur. In the back we have a main camera of 12 Mpx with functions assisted by artificial intelligence and a support of 2 Mpx.

We have infrared, Bluetooth 4.2, dual band Wifi and even FM radio.
