Xiaomi Redmi Note 7S specifications

Redmi Note 7S features a glass-and-aluminum sandwich design just like its cousins and has a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display. The screen has a u-shaped notch which is also home to a 13MP camera. This is topped by Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 both on the front and the back for additional protection against regular wear and tear.

On the back, there's a 48MP camera along with a 5MP secondary camera that acts as a depth sensor to assist in portrait photography. The aperture on the primary sensor is f/1.8 while the depth-sensing camera has an f/2.4 aperture.

The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset and an octa-core CPU with Adreno 512 to back up the graphics performance. This is paired with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB onboard storage which can be further expanded via microSD card. It runs on MIUI 10 which is based on Android 9.0 Pie.

The Note 7S draws power from a 4,000mAh battery which supports 18W fast charging courtesy Quick Charge 4.0. However, Xiaomi only provides a 10W adapter in-the-box.
