Xiaomi has already launched Redmi Note 7 Pro in India and its China variant is expected to be slightly different from the recently launched Indian version.

Redmi Go is Xiaomi's first Android Go (edition) smartphone and it remains to be seen how it is priced in India.

After launching the Xiaomi Mi 9 globally and Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in India, Xiaomi today announced the Redmi 7 in China.

It runs on Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 and is backed up by 4000mAh battery.

Xiaomi Redmi Go runs Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition), created to run on smoothly on smartphones with 1GB RAM or less.

The three storage options are 2GB+16GB, 3GB+32GB and 4GB+64GB, which are priced at 699 yuan ($104), 799 yuan ($119) and 999 yuan ($149) respectively. The dual-SIM, however, does not support dual VoLTE support. The phone doesn't have fingerprint sensor. It measures 158.65 x 76.43 x 8.47mm and the weight is 180 grams. The Redmi 7 succeeds Redmi 6 which was one of the bestselling budget smartphones in India a year ago.

It rocks the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset with an octa-core CPU and is paired with 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM with 16GB/32GB/64GB onboard storage. As for cameras, it sports a 13MP front facing camera, with dual rear camera set-up and a 48MP main sensor. For the front, it has 13-megapixel AI camera for selfies. What does stand out is that the Redmi Go bears an HD display, unlimited Google Photos storage, a relatively large 3,000mAh battery, as well as a dedicated microSD card slot. Connectivity options on the handset include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, Global Positioning System and a Micro USB port.

Unlike Redmi Note 7 which received an 18-month warranty, the Redmi 7 warranty is limited to the standard 12-month warranty.
