The Redmi Note 5 Pro that was unveiled at the beginning of 2018 was powered by Snapdragon 636. In the second half of 2018, Xiaomi introduced the Redmi Note 6 Pro as an incremental update since it was fueled by the same SoC. The newly spotted Geekbench listing of the Redmi Note 7 reveals that the Chinese manufacturer will power it with a better chipset. Through Geekbench listing it has been revealed that the Snapdragon 660 SoC and 6 GB RAM will be driving the Note 7. The handset will be preinstalled with Android 9 Pie OS.

In the single-core test of Geekbench, the Redmi Note 7 has scored 1462. In the multi-core, the smartphone has recorded 4556 score. The Xiaomi Mi Note 3, Mi A2 (Mi 6x) and Mi 8 Lite are the Snapdragon 660 chipset powered smartphone from the company. And now, the company could be prepping up the Redmi Note 7 as its next Snapdragon 660 chipset powered phone.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro that was released in India was made available as Redmi Note 5 in China. Xiaomi did not launch the Redmi Note 6 Pro smartphone. Now that the Geekbench listing of the Redmi Note 7 has appeared, it seems that the company may skip the Note 6 handset. The Redmi Note 7 may land outside of China as Redmi Note 7 Pro.

 

Unfortunately, there are no other details available on the specifications of the smartphone. However, there is a possibility that the company may cut down on the size of the display of the smartphone by including a waterdrop notch enabled screen on it. Xiaomi hasn’t teased any features of the Redmi Note 7 yet which suggests that the handset may not be announced at the Jan. 10 event.
