The upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 7 smartphone has received approval from the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) authority in the U.S. Some of the key details of the smartphone such as dimensions, storage variants and more have been revealed through the FCC filings.

According to the Nashville Chatter Class, the FCC body has approved a Xiaomi phone that has a model number of M180F6LG. It is the same model number that was certified by Singapore’s Info-Communications Media Development Authority (IMDA). Through the IMDA approval, it was confirmed that the M180F6LG will be releasing as Redmi 7 in the market.

The Redmi 7 FCC documents showed that it will be arriving with MIUI 10 user interface like the recent Xiaomi phones. The phone could be loaded with the latest Android 9 Pie OS. Also, it has been found that the Xiaomi will be releasing the Redmi 7 in three editions in the global markets such as 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, 3GB RAM with 64GB storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage.

The FCC listing has further revealed that the handset measures 157 x 76mm. Since it measures 167mm diagonally, it may come with a display of around 6 inches. There are no details available on the other specifications of the smartphone. Earlier in this month, Gizmo China had reported that the Redmi 7 models like M180F6LC, M180F6LE and M1806F6LK were approved by China’s Compulsory Certificate (3C) body. The 3C listing of the phone had confirmed that it would be carrying support for 10W charging.

It is speculated that the Redmi series will include Redmi 7A, Redmi 7 and Redmi 7 Pro smartphones since the company had launched Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 and Redmi 6 Pro phones in the previous year. Redmi is yet to confirm on the existence of the Redmi 7 series. However, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had claimed in January that Redmi 7 phone will be costing between 700 Yuan ($104) and 800 Yuan ($119). Redmi is expected to announce the Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone first before unveiling the Redmi 7 series.
