Partnering with Jumia, Global technology leader Xiaomi, has announced the launch of Redmi Note 7, the latest smartphone in the highly popular Redmi Note series.
Redmi Note 7 continues the series’ tradition of featuring a large display and excellent battery life and pushes smartphone photography to a new level in this price range.
Together with Redmi Note 7, Xiaomi also launched Redmi 7, the latest smartphone in the new Redmi brand.
“Redmi Note is one of Xiaomi’s most popular series, Redmi Note 7 truly illustrates our philosophy of innovation from everyone because of its amazing performance and attractive price. Partnering with Jumia, we’re very excited today to bring Redmi Note 7 and Redmi 7 to our customers in Nigeria,” Said Mr Steven Wang, Head of Expansion Marketing, Xiaomi Global.
“The launch of Redmi Note 7 is coming at a time when Nigeria is mentioned among seven countries that would contribute 700 million new mobile subscribers to hit the 6 billion mobile subscribers mark in the world by 2025. Availability of honest price point smartphones such as Xiaomi will deepen smartphone penetration in the country and help the country in meeting its 4 per cent quota of the 700 million new global mobile subscribers, as predicted by GSMA Intelligence,” said Mrs Juliet Anammah, Chief Executive Officer of Jumia Nigeria.
Describing the smartphone, Wang said: “Redmi Note 7 marks the greatest shift in design in the series, sporting a new premium style with the front and rear covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 5. “The gorgeous 19.5:9 Dot Drop display measures 6.3 inches diagonally and has a FHD+ resolution of 2380 x 1080. The Redmi Note 7 screen’s high pixel density and accurate colours (84% NTSC colour gamut) offers one of the finest visual experiences in its class.
“On the back, Redmi Note 7 sports the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 backside illuminated CMOS sensor that has 48 million physical pixels.
When taking pictures, the sensor uses Samsung’s Tetracell technology that merges four pixels to work as one large 1.6µm pixel. This greatly increases light sensitivity and makes the resulting 12MP image much brighter and clearer, even in low-light conditions.
“Redmi Note 7 carries on the Redmi tradition of excellent battery life with its large 4000mAh battery, which will last over a day for almost all users. Recharge via the USB Type-C port, and enjoy shorter charging times thanks to support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4. Redmi Note 7 also includes an IR blaster capable of controlling numerous home appliances, such as televisions or air conditioners. In addition, it comes with Smart PA audio for louder and higher-quality sound.”
