Xiaomi Redmi 7 Series May Just Have Received 3C Certification in China: Report
xXiaomi has been spotted building three new smartphone models. While the company hasn’t made any confirmation around the development, three Xiaomi smartphones have allegedly received certification from China’s Compulsory Certificate (3C). These new models are likely to be a part of the Redmi 7 series. The smartphones could, therefore, be the Redmi 7A, Redmi 7, and Redmi 7 Pro. The 3C listing also shows that the new Xiaomi smartphones come with 5V/2A charging, suggesting 10W charge support. This again hints at the new Redmi models as the company generally offers 10W charging support with its affordable models.
The 3C listing, as spotted by technology blog Nashville Chatter, shows three new Xiaomi smartphones carrying model numbers M1901F7E, M1901F7T, and M1901F7C. These are likely to be the Redmi 7 series models – could precisely be the Redmi 7A, Redmi 7, and Redmi 7 Pro – as the successor to the Redmi 6₹ 8,439 family that debuted in June this year.
Among other developments, a screenshot shared by the source indicates that the new Xiaomi handsets have received 3C certification on November 29. All three models have 4G LTE support and 5V/2A charging that could translate into 10W charge support.
It is worth noting here that since all the Redmi models launched this year internally carry model numbers begin with “M18”, the new series that apparently has model numbers starting with “M19” could be the Redmi models of 2019.
Xiaomi hasn’t launched the Redmi Note 6 Pro₹ 13,999 in China that debuted in Thailand back in late September. Thus, it is speculated that the company might skip that model now and bring the next-generation Redmi 7.
