Xiaomi yesterday launched Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in India. Alongside, the company is also working on Redmi 7 smartphone. The device has now been certified by NBTC in Thailand and TKDN in Indonesia indicating its imminent launch.
However, the listings at the NBTC and TKDN websites have not revealed any information on its specifications. They just show that the phone carries model number M180F6LG. The Redmi 7 with the same model number M180F6LG was approved by the IMDA (Info-Communications Media Development Authority) body of Singapore some months ago.
Recently, the phone was certified by the Federal Communications Commission in the US. The FCC body also approved the Xiaomi phone with a model number of M180F6LG. Earlier, the Redmi 7 also received a Compulsory Certification of China (CCC or 3C) certification in China. The 3C certification revealed that the Redmi 7 will come with 5V/2A charging support. Apart from this, the certification documents also confirmed that the phone will have 4G LTE connectivity.
As per the earlier FCC listing, the Redmi 7 measures 157 x 76mm. The certification suggests that the phone’s display measures 167mm diagonally, which indicates that it could offer a 6.2-inch display. The rear image of the phone in the FCC documents shows that it features a single rear camera.
The Redmi 7 will boot MIUI 10 out of the box, which is expected to be based on Android 9 Pie. The listing further reveals that the phone will come in three variants – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 3GB RAM + 64GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. As of now, no other specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi 7 are known.
