Unlike the current trend of smartphones having a notch or punch-hole, Redmi 7A would have a traditional design with bezels at the top and bottom.
Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi would launch its flagship device Redmi K20 Pro on May 28. The smartphone has created a lot of buzz mainly due to its tagline of a ‘Flagship Killer’, which was once known to be associated with OnePlus devices.
