Xiaomi’s pocket-friendly Redmi and Redmi Note series has been the most popular for the company so far by keeping its focus on value-for-money budget smartphones and good performance.
A few months back, Xiaomi has announced to make ‘Redmi’ an independent brand bullish on the success of its Redmi series, specially in the Indian market. Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun explained that the primary reason behind separating both Mi and Redmi brands was the focus. While the Redmi brand focuses on value-for-money budget smartphones, the Mi brand is focused on high-end devices. The strategy adopted by Xiaomi was similar to the one adopted by Huawei. While Huawei is focusing on high-end phones, its sub-brand Honor is focused on making budget phones.
The successor to the XIAOMI REDMI NOTE 7 PRO is that the officially announced next-in-line XIAOMI REDMI NOTE 8 (releasing next month, introducing 5G) and a 48 MP camera sensor smartphone company has been teasing about from long, Redmi Note 7S (same specification as Redmi Note 7, except for the rear camera setup which will have 48 MP primary sensor for the dual camera module).
