Redmi Note 7 Pro features 48-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual rear cameras. Not much is known about the smartphone at the moment, although we can expect incremental upgrades over the existing Redmi Note 7.

So, Redmi Note 7S in India could just be the Chinese Redmi Note 7 donning the Samsung 48MP GM1 sensor instead of the Sony 48MP IMX 586 sensor as the Note 7 Pro. The latest development follows Redmi India's tweet from earlier this week who disclosed that new Redmi phone with an "S" is coming to India with a new 48MP camera unit.

The company will be launching the all-new Redmi Note 7S smartphone in India on May 20th. #RedmiNote7S - An all-new SUPER Redmi Note for all our India Mi fans is coming!

Assuming It: Why Suddenly Redmi Note 7S?

The announcement comes right on the heels of an analysis from Counterpoint Research which showed that Realme 3 managed to beat Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro to become the best-selling smartphone in the online retail segment.

In terms of optics, the Redmi K20 is rumored to come with a triple rear camera with a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 16MP telephoto camera.

If it is rebranded Note 7, the pricing should also be the same.
