Both Xiaomi and Redmi have been teasing the Note 7 phone with a 48MP camera setup on their Indian social media accounts. Last week, the teasers promised market disruption, though the exact launch date of the phones was not known. Citing industry sources, 91mobiles has now claimed that it has procured a launch event invite which allegedly says that Redmi will launch the Note 7 in India on February 12.
Comments on the teaser tweeted by Xiaomi and Redmi suggested that the Redmi Note 7 could launch in India on February 12. This was because Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 5 Pro in India on the same date last year. The Redmi Note 7 starts at 999 Yuan in China (approx. Rs 10,000) for the 3GB+32GB variant. The 4GB+64GB variant is priced 1199 Yuan (approx Rs 12,500) and the 6GB+64GB variant retails for 1399 Yuan, which is approximately Rs 14,500.
