In terms of build quality, the Redmi Note 7 comes with a glass sandwich design sporting 2.5D curved glass on either side of the metal frame. It was the first Xiaomi phone to come with the wide notched display. It is available in Blue, Twilight Gold and Black color options and pre-orders are already up with availability expected on January 15th. It's worth noting that given the impressive specs, all three versions of the Redmi Note 7 will be available in the United States dollars 150 to USD 210 price range. This one has also got the 5MP AI selfie camera. Whenever global versions of the Redmi Note 7 reach retailers in the States, we can expect the prices to be a bit higher, but still plenty cheap for what you get.

Xiaomi is promising a lot with the new Redmi Note 7 camera, especially with the smart features on the 13MP front camera that lets you unlock the device with your face, and comes with things like portrait mode/bokeh effect.
