While the Redmi Note 7 launched in the Indian market came with 12MP + 2MP dual rear cameras, the same device in China featured 48MP + 5MP dual camera setup on the rear. Not much is known about the smartphone at the moment, although we can expect incremental upgrades over the existing Redmi Note 7.
While the Redmi Note 7 Pro sports 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, the Redmi Note 7S (a.k.a Chinese Redmi Note 7) uses a 48MP Samsung GM1 sensor. After some initial teasers, Xiaomi on Thursday formally confirmed that its new 48-megapixel camera phone would be none other than the Redmi Note 7S. On the out, Redmi Note 7S will come with the same design as Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro.More news: Serena Williams wins clay opener; sister Venus next in Rome

The company is yet to confirm the processor, but it may run on the same chipset as Redmi Note 7, the Snapdragon 660 chip. The Redmi Note 7 Pro swaps that 12-megapixel camera for a higher resolution 48-megapixel camera, and uses a 5-megapixel camera for depth sensing. "Mark your calendars!" This message was accompanied by a picture of the Earth taken from the Redmi Note 7S. The phone has a 4,000mAh battery which also supports fast charging.
