Xiaomi has recently introduced the Redmi Note 7s with 48-megapixel Samsung GM-1 in India. The pricing of this new variant was extremely similar to the existing Redmi Note 7 which was launched just a couple of months back, raising many eyebrows. However, looks like the Redmi Note 7 will be soon phased out and will be replaced by the Redmi Note 7s.


Xiaomi’s Category head in India, Raghu Reddy and Head of Marketing, Anuj Sharma have revealed that the new version will replace the old Note 7. This indicates that the original Redmi Note 7 has had a very short lifespan and is set to become obsolete within 3 months of its launch.

This news might not be welcomed by the users who’ve recently bought the phone. As per Anuj Sharma, this was indeed a planned move, however, there is a high probability that the Samsung’s 48-megapixel sensor which is present in the Note 7s might have been in short supply. Hence, Xiaomi was forced to launch a regular variant in Note 7 and once the supply issue was sorted, the company announced the new variant.

In any case, it’s the loyal Xiaomi users who’re feeling betrayed and one of these users did vent out his frustration online.

This really saddens, especially for those users who just bought the RN7, to know that this is one development, which they won't like :( :(

If I remember to have read correctly, that there was a similar thought process when OnePlus had come out with the "T" variant just a few weeks after releasing the main device.
