Mi Play, Xiaomi's new smartphone focused on gaming enthusiasts, is set to launch in China today. Dubbed as the successor to Redmi Note 6 Pro, Xiaomi Mi Play is expected to be targeted at the mid-range segment.

Xiaomi Mi Play also known as Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is the company's first phone with waterdrop notch display - similar to OnePlus 6T. The smartphone also does away with the company's traditional metal unibody design in favour of radiant glass-finish on the back. The panel looks very similar to Asus' Zenfone Max Pro M2 though.
