Redmi is all set to unveil the Redmi 7 in China in less than a day. A lot has leaked about the device, especially with TENAA spilling all the beans as usual. As if that weren’t bad enough, now just a few hours before the official launch, the device has surfaced on the Geekbench database with even more details.
While the Redmi 7’s benchmark listing confirms a number of expected and previously revealed specs, the exact processor used is still a mystery, unfortunately. Geekbench lists the CPU as the Qualcomm msm8953, which would mean the Snapdragon 625.
However, previous leaks claim that the Redmi 7 would feature the Snapdragon 632. It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen Geekbench mix up chips before.
Moving on, the phone received a 1,219 score in the single-core category, and 4,197 in the multi-core test. These scores are from a Redmi 7 variant that has 4GB of RAM, which is probably going to be the most expensive model available.
The budget Android smartphone will come with a 6.26-inch display featuring HD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch. In China, the Redmi 7 will be made available in three memory configurations: 2GB RAM + 16GB storage, 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage.
Other than that, we’ve got a rear fingerprint sensor, an IR blaster, and a large 3,900mAh battery. The Redmi 7 will ship with Android Pie-based MIUI 10 out of the box. Prices haven’t been leaked, though we expect a them to begin at about CNY 899 ($134). We expect the Redmi 7 to arrive in India soon after its launch in China.
