Head Xiaomi has promised the flagship smartphone Redmi for $ 370
Today, just after the event, which debuted the smartphones Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro, found some interesting details about both these new items, as well as plans to expand the lineup Redmi.
Let’s start with Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro. As it turned out, these models, unlike other Xiaomi smartphones, are provided with an extended warranty – 18 months instead of the standard 12. This looks attractive to consumers, especially considering that it is a budget model. In addition, such a move can be advantageous to allocate Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro against competitors (Lenovo, Honor and others) with a standard warranty period of one year.
The second news relates to the further development of the Redmi range as an independent brand. During a press briefing, Xiaomi’s head Lei Jun said that Redmi will still be producing smartphones with the best combination of price and quality, but along with affordable models at around $ 150, they will be model and more expensive – $ 295 and even $ 370. That is, there will be a classical division into models of the initial, middle and higher levels, as, for example, in the same line of Honor.
The top value is a peculiar limit for which Redmi smartphones will not go out to prevent internal competition with Mi models. At the same time, the Redmi will use flagship platforms. For example, the details of a Redmi on the Sochi Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 recently surfaced on the Web. So, in the future, new and interesting Redmi are waiting for us cheaply, but they use firm-proven solutions and are not the cheapest single-chip platforms.
