Redmi Note 7 Pro Exclusive to India and China only.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has just confirmed that it will not sell its Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro in the international market. The company has already launched the device in the Indian and Chinese market with impressive hardware specifications providing bang for the buck. The decision to limit both the device models to India and China was shared by John Chen, the Regional Director for Southeast Asia at Xiaomi in a Facebook post on his official account. As part of the statement, Chen revealed that the limitation was placed because of the “product strategy” of Xiaomi.

This announcement comes almost a month after the company launched its Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 7 in India. It is worth noting that there is some confusion when it comes to the naming and hardware specifications of the Redmi Note 7 and the Note 7 Pro in the Indian and Chinese markets. This is due to the fact that the Redmi Note 7 sports a 12-megapixel sensor in India with Note 7 Pro coming with a 48-megapixel primary sensor. On the other hand, both the Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro in Chinese market sport 48-megapixel primary sensor.

Earlier this month, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 Pro in India, making it the first market to get the smartphone. It was later launched in China, and its India price starts Rs. 13,999 for the 4GB + 64GB variant, whereas the 6GB + 128GB version will be offered at Rs. 16,999. It is available in three colours - Neptune Blue, Nebula Red, and Space Black - via, Flipkart, and Mi Home stores, with select offline retailers to follow.

Xiaomi looks to expand its offline presence in India by increasing its Mi Store to 5,0000 by the end of 2019. The Chinese giant, with 28.9 percent market share, led the Indian smartphone market in 2018, followed by South Korean brand Samsung at 22.4 percent and Vivo at 10 percent, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) report.
