On May 20, Xiaomi announced a new budget smartphone in India dubbed Redmi Note 7S. Redmi Note 7S is the cheapest phone with the 48MP Rear camera. It has identical internals compared to Redmi Note 7 with 48MP Rear camera. Redmi Note 7S has priced at Rs. 10,999 just Rs. 1,000 higher than Redmi Note 7.
Everyone will prefer Redmi Note 7S compared to Redmi Nore 7 because it’s a great rear camera and at the price, Redmi Note 7 doesn’t make sense anymore. So, Xiaomi is planning to discontinue Redmi Note 7.
It might look like that, but in reality the Note 7 gets phased out.

More connected with lifecycle volumes than time. Sometimes planned volumes sell out faster than expected (way faster)
