Fast forward khổng lồ 2019, & things are very different. There aren"t any homegrown brands anymore, xiaomi is sitting pretty at the đứng đầu of the summit, & Samsung has drastically overhauled its budget strategy lớn counter Xiaomi. To say that xiaomi mi single-handedly killed off the likes of Micromax và Lava would be unfair — it certainly contributed to lớn their decline, but Indian brands failed to lớn see the looming threat of brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo, và were ill-prepared to giảm giá khuyến mãi with it once it arrived.

The reason for Xiaomi"s success in India boils down to lớn a single factor: value. From the mi 3 to the Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro, the brand has always been about delivering unmatched value in whatever segment it enters. That"s true for its TVs, soundbar, fitness bands, và a myriad of smart trang chủ devices.

Several brands have tried to lớn emulate Xiaomi"s strategy in the budget segment, but few have come close. While xiaomi mi has ventured into a lot of lifestyle categories in recent months, the phone business continues lớn be its primary revenue driver. The Redmi series in particular accounts for an overwhelming majority of Xiaomi"s sales, và 2019 promises to be a momentous year for the brand.

The Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro is the biggest year-on-year update in the lineup so far, and it aims to lớn cement Xiaomi"s position at the đứng đầu of India"s điện thoại cảm ứng segment.

Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro Hardware

It"s also understandable why mi decided khổng lồ update the Redmi chú ý 6 Pro after just four months. The Snapdragon 636 chipset is a reliable workhorse, but with the likes of the ZenFone Max Pro m2 and Realme 2 Pro sporting a Snapdragon 660, xiaomi had khổng lồ act to lớn maintain its edge in the budget category.

With a switch to lớn a glass back, the Redmi chú ý 7 Pro is one of the best-looking budget phones today.

And that"s where the Redmi note 7 Pro comes in. The phone has a brand new design with a gradient finish at the back that gives it a much more upmarket look. Mi was one of the first to offer metal designs in the budget segment — back when everyone was still using polycarbonate — but with the Redmi chú ý 5 Pro, that design aesthetic was starting to lớn look stale.

The design needed a much-needed refresh, and the Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro delivers just that. The Aura thiết kế sees two layers of Gorilla Glass 5 sandwiched between a plastic rim, with the back featuring a gradient pattern similar to lớn what Huawei & Honor offer. On my Neptune xanh unit, the màu sắc shifts between various hues of xanh as light bounces off its surface. With the striking gradient patterns và gorgeous color options, the Redmi cảnh báo 7 Pro is one of the best-looking budget phones I"ve used.

Gorilla Glass 5 should provide additional protection against tumbles, but you"re better off using a case. Xiaomi has also added a layer of P2i nanocoating to lớn the surface of the Redmi chú ý 7 Pro, which should allow for some protection against minor spills — just don"t take the phone to lớn the pool as there"s no IP rating.
