Xiaomi Redmi 7 variants namely M180F6LE, M180F6LT and M180F6LC have bagged certification from China’s Compulsory Certificate (3C) authority in the home country.
The smartphone was approved by Singapore’s Info-Communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) and Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC) in the past weeks. These certifications reveal that the Redmi 7 launch date is drawing near.
The IMDA certification of M180F6LG had confirmed that it will be launching in Singapore as Redmi 7. The M180F6LE, M180F6LT, M180F6LC model numbers are nothing but Chinese variants of the Redmi 7 smartphone. The MDY-09-EK charger that may come along with the phone will carry support for 10W charging which indicates that it is unlikely to carry support for fast charging.
There is no information available on the other specifications of the M180F6LE/T/C Redmi 7 smartphone. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had claimed in January that the Redmi 7 would be priced between 700 Yuan and 800 Yuan. The Redmi 7 will be the successor of the Redmi 6 smartphone. Since the Redmi 6 series also included Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 Pro phones, the Chinese manufacturer may launch Redmi 7 and Redmi 7 Pro as their successor phones.
The Redmi 6 and 6A smartphones came with 18:9 aspect ratio screen while the Redmi 6 Pro sported a display with a wider notch. There is a possibility that the Redmi 7 may feature a wider notch screen while the Redmi 7 Pro may come with a u-shaped notch like the Redmi Note 7. There is no information available on the launch date of the Redmi 7 series.
Redmi will be announcing the Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone later this month. The smartphone is expected to come with some improvements like Snapdragon 675, 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 as primary sensor in its dual camera setup, 6 GB of RAM and 182 GB of storage. Probably, Redmi may launch the Redmi 7 series few weeks after the unveiling of Redmi Note 7 Pro.
