The Redmi 7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC and will be available in three different RAM and storage variants - 2GB RAM with 16GB of storage, 3GB RAM with 32GB of storage, and 4GB RAM with 64GB of storage. Selfie duties are handled by an 8MP camera within a waterdrop notch - this shooter also offers face unlock functionality. The Redmi 7 phone comes in three variants (2GB, 3GB & 4GB) whereas Redmi Note 7 Pro is launched as a sole variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage capacity.
