    Xiaomi is expected to soon launch an upgraded version of its Redmi Note 7 smartphone. Called Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro, the smartphone with a more powerful processor and camera could hit markets as early as February.

    According to a leak on Weibo, Redmi Note 7 Pro will be priced around CNY 1,399 and 1,499. This roughly translates to 14,800 which would be the starting price of Redmi Note 7 Pro. In comparison, Redmi Note 7 which currently retails in China starts at approximately 11,000.

    The same leak also highlights key specifications of Redmi Note 7 Pro which corroborates previous information. The smartphone will be powered by a 48-megapixel camera like the Redmi Note 7, but with a better image sensor. Xiaomi will reportedly use Sony IMX586 image sensor on the Redmi Note 7 Pro's 48-megapixel camera. Sony says that this sensor is optimised for low-light photography by keeping details intact and also reducing highlight blowout.

    Another major upgrade on the Redmi Note 7 Pro will be Qualcomm's Snapdragon 675 processor. Xiaomi had announced that it would launch a Snapdragon 675-powered smartphone in 2019. Snapdragon 675 is equipped with Adreno 612 GPU, and based on the 11nm manufacturing process.
