Software: Sadly, the Redmi Note 7 runs MIUI 9 based on Android Oreo.

It is backed by a 4000mAh non-removable battery and with the QuickCharge 4.0 support, the device can be fully charged in 1 hour 40 minutes. Unlike many USA-based phones that've made a decision to abandon the ways of the past, this device has an IR-blaster, giving it control over your television should you want it. Connectivity options include USBType-Cport, 3.5mm headphone jack, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System. The Redmi Note 7 is the only phone under Rs 10,000 with Snapdragon 660. The phone has a 6.3-inch display with a smaller, waterdrop style notch, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. There's also a relatively sizeable amount of bezel on the chin up front, and the back comes in a variety of fancy gradient colors - so shiny!

Availability: Goes on sale in China from January 15. This is the first Redmi smartphone to come with a glass back. While the phone maker hasn't revealed the name of the device, it is expected to be called either the Redmi X or Redmi Pro 2.
