Xiaomi recently made Redmi a proper sub-brand under its tag. Redmi recently launched the Redmi Note 7 in China, the first smartphone under the Redmi tag. Now, while the product is available only in China, the company understands that India is one of their primary markets. As such, it is a no-brainer that the company will launch its smartphones in India. We’ve previously talked about how reports suggest that the company could be bringing a total of three smartphones to India. And now, Xiaomi India has confirmed the upcoming arrival of the Redmi Note 7.
