    Awesome deal imo. I have the Redmi not 5 and love it. Additions of b28, usb-c and larger storage is good

  • +2 votes

    I'd be interested to see the model number. There are loads of sellers on AliExpress claiming band 28 for this phone and so far none of them are actually selling the band 28 model. Huge discussion on whirlpool regarding it

    • +2 votes

      I've seen that thread and was surprised to see posters jumping in based on the seller description including band 28 despite it seeming odd.

      Bottom line, never give grey importers the benefit of the doubt, particularly on AliExpress.

    B28 is fake according to Whirlpool.

    no nfc?

    • +6 votes

      No Redmi phones with NFC.

      See recent deals on Umidigi F1 Play, Mi Mix 2s, Zenfone 4, Sharp Aquos S3, Nokia 6.1 to get NFC, B28, USB-C.

      •  

        Also probably should add the Pixel 3a now to that list, has B28, NFC and USB-C (but wait for the price drops obviously).

    • +2 votes

      I'll aim for a Xiaomi NFC phone for the next deal ;)

  •  

    Can you confirm this is the Taiwanese version, model M1901F7H ?

    Thanks

    •  

      I will confirm with GeekBuying thanks.

      Edit: EU version.

      They never check physical stock for a model #.
      The same for B28… they only repeat the network band capability shown on their listing even if it is wrong.
      The same thing happened with the RN6, many had incorrect listings for those also.
      The H version is the one you want if you want a RN7 with B28 but so far it has not been available for purchase online through any seller.

    This or the Umidigi F1 Play?

    RRP is 1000 rmb. So it's$100 extra to buy from you?

    •  

      In China*

      That's how it works with all Chinese stores that sell overseas. This is still cheaper than all the others.

    •  

      Just checked the 4GB+128GB version on Xiaomi's official website it cost RMB 1499. The price converts to AU$ is 313.
      How?

    • +1 vote

      Good luck obtaining stock with new releases in the mainland stores.

    •  

      If you buy the cheaper one in China, I believe it will be region locked and more difficult to get it working with google play. I think i also read that they have locked the ability to flash a custom rom (or official global version) with mainland China versions.

      •  

        You're right I forgot about this! Basically the Chinese version will be in Chinese with a locked bootloader requiring permission from Xiaomi themselves. That process normally takes weeks.

  • +1 vote

    I have this phone and it is great, I can just use it one handed, battery life is really good, many 8 hours of screen on time. Plus it supports quick charge 4.0 so charge it up quickly, but you need separate charger as included one is only 10w.

    •  

      Can you tell me where you got the QC 4 charger? I looked on ebay and all it shows is in car cigarette lighter adapters lol

      •  

        Actually I don't have one but I found a link thru the Qualcomm page that lists them. There's a belkin BOOST↑CHARGE™ USB-C™ Home Charger + Cable with Quick Charge™ 4+. It's 70 bucks directly from the site or you could go Amazon and get it a bit cheaper with cashback.

    Sorry guys confirmed that this is infact the EU version that does not have B28.

    flagship level

    midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 660

    So is it flagship or midrange

    • +3 votes

      Don't take it out of context.

      Tonight we have a historical low on this flagship level Redmi phone that is packed with features.

      The lesser phone would be the Redmi 7. Redmi are Xiaomi's budget sub-brand with both flagship models (Redmi Note) and more basic models (Redmi).

      High end flagship would be the Mi series with SD800 series chipsets ;)

    •  

      Flagship of this series is RN7P. Since we have to idea where is the Taiwan version is, you can wait for the RN7P sales.

      • +1 vote

        Er it's only India and China for Pro. R7P will be very hard to get cos Xiaomi CEO said himself it will only be for those two countries and nowhere else for global variant.

        •  

          Doesn't make a difference for us. It'll still have global rom because it'll be released in India, and it'll still won't have b28 because it's Xiaomi.

          •  

            @Wonderfool: All I can say is fat luck to us mere mortals getting it easily in Australia for the Pro.

            •  

              @adrianhughes1998: What? https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32991515841.html?pid=808_0000_...

              You're buying Xiaomi phones, you're basically the Chinese market but with b28 requirement.

              No offense to clear, but these guys are way more trustworthy than Geekbuying.

              •  

                @Wonderfool: "1.The phone have Playstore and Multi-language?
                China Version, Only have Chinese and English Language"

                • +1 vote

                  @xywolap: Means that the seller has modified the ROM to sideload English/Google Play. People in customer feedback specifically mention some kind of preinstalled app that does this so there is the potential for adware and other nasty stuff.

                  Safest way would be to request a bootloader unlock from Xiaomi and reflashing with the India ROM.

              • +1 vote

                @Wonderfool: It's not global ROM it's the china ROM. Lots of folks prefer not having the hassle of using china ROM.

                I've bought heaps of stuff off geekbuying over the years and I actually buy my phones from them and have had no issues.

                • -1 vote

                  @adrianhughes1998: Does that matter? I'm here strictly talking about a flagship redmi, and global rom had been out for 2 months now.

                  but fine. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32988145342.html?pid=808_0000_...

                  Seriously, we've been shopping like this for over 5 years, don't act like as if Xiaomi had ever given us special treatment of some sort. B28 hasn't exist in the redmis since Kate.

                  •  

                    @Wonderfool: That's not global ROM. If you checks the feedback and the photos people are posting there is Chinese writing on the box, the global writing is all in English. The sticker on the phone itself is in Chinese writing (global is all English). The screenshot of the settings menu is different layout to global (once again, it's Chinese ROM).

                    Global doesn't mean it has to have B28, I've had redmi note 4, mi max etc with no band 28. Also had redmi note 3 pro with band 28 and yes that was the last redmi (global) that had B28.

                      @adrianhughes1998: I'm not sure if the comments are accidents, but it supposed to have Chinese stickers. They flashed global rom over a in Chinese phone for you, and that's how Aussies got it before they expanded to Europe.

                      And look, maybe you're right, perhaps this vendor doesn't have it yet, but one of them will, and eventually, all of them will. It's just flashing a rom onto a phone.

                      • +2 votes

                        @Wonderfool: You don't get it.

                        Global ROM is different to a vendor flashing their own ROM taking Chinese out and putting english on. It invites opportunities to put malware on or potentially other dangerous things.

                        Global ROM is clean and from Xiaomi. On MIUI forums there is a download section that has official global ROM download links for models. If that model doesn't have a global variant such as Mi 8 SE it will only have China or Russia ROM.

                        Until we see global ROM up for download on that website, there is NO official global variant release yet. Period.

                        • -1 vote

                          @adrianhughes1998: I do. I've been there during the RN3P period where it was rampant. That is why we had a recommended vendor list in ozbargain and whirlpool.

                          It doesn't matter if there isn't a global variant, we are far more tied to the Chinese/Indian market than the global market. If you need proof, just search up Redmi Note 3 pro and Mi Mix 1 global rom deals on this site. Both phone that predates global release/Indian specialised released.

                          Edit: oh. And indian rom is global rom. The only time they were different was in RN5P and RN7 regular, where they have different parts between Chinese and india

                          •  

                            @Wonderfool: Lmao I'm sure you do. Considering you got the whole global ROM concept wrong when you have that Goldway listing, I don't believe anything that comes out of your mouth.

                            And good for you being there during that period cos surprise I bought the global ROM variant of the RN3 Pro at that time off geekbuying.

                            •  

                              @adrianhughes1998: Not here to bag about geekbuying. My problem with them is a completely separate issue that got to do with the way they handle stocks and trackers.

                              I understand why you'll doubt me now, I wasn't aware that people really cared that much about roms. But you're free to verify the Indian=global rom claim when you feel like it.

                              •  

                                @Wonderfool: I know Indian - global ROM , it always has been for years. Just you're off on a tangent now.

                                Yes people do care that much about ROMs , always have, whether it's here in Oz or elsewhere. Case closed.

                                  @adrianhughes1998: That's been my point from first post. Flaship is rn7p and it's not hard to get. To Aussies, Global is just a rom on a phone, which vendors will load for you.

                                  Goodness, what do you think I was trying to say?

                                  •  

                                    @Wonderfool: There might be legit loading of global ROM but for most part there isn't. For example on that Goldway listing the layout of the device specs up top in the settings menu, that's a dead giveaway it's the china ROM and not global ROM.

                                    Buyers gotta be very careful that's what I saying

                                    •  

                                      @adrianhughes1998: And that, I agree with.

                                      That comes with the territory of importing, and that's why we have communities like these to share knowledge, so the more enthusiasts of us can help others with informed purchasing.

                                      Like you're doing now.

    The listing should include GST in the title.

    [Aliexpress] (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Global-Version-Xiaomi-Redmi-...)
    AUD$293.94 + GST incl free snail mail Black
    AUD$301.80 + GST incl free snail mail Blue

    This model does NOT support B28 according to [Kimovil] (https://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-xiaomi-redmi-note-7-...), the smartphone price tracking site.
    This site is super useful around Black Friday sales, Christmas sales, Chinese New Year sales…basically all sales.

          No it won't. Value is less than $1000 AU so it won't be checked.

          For some reason people assume the new legislation is a customs enforced tax when it's not.

          To put it simply the government asks that stores collect GST by customers at the time of purchase and later pay that to the ATO. If the store doesn't charge you GST then you've scored yourself some tax free goods with no repercussions.

    Hmm, I like the look of this. Seems like a good upgrade from my Redmi 3 Pro, but I'm not sure if the extra inch and a third will make it larger enough that I might drop it….

    • +1 vote

      Large screen phones = flip covers are the best protection.

    •  

      Also found larger/longer screen phones you tend to drop less than shorter/stubbier/wider phones as it balances better in your hand.

      My own experience anyway for what it counts.

  •  

    Word on the street is the Redmi Note 7 Pro will have SDM675 and B28

    •  

      I looked into further and currently only the Redmi Note 7 Taiwanese version has B28 as they use that band. Same will apply to the RN7 Pro if they release a TW version as the Chinese version currently doesn't have it.

      •  

        India and China get global variant of Note 7 pro. Redmi CEO said this himself. So basically most of the world won't get the chance to buy it :(

        •  

          Yeah you're right. It'll be a real struggle for Geek to get any and of they do the price will probably be high.

  •  

    Historically low? How much was it before this deal?

  •  

    Nice, tempted. Might hold off till Poco 2 comes. Thanks anyway!

  •  

    Is the 48mp camera actually "real" in this one, or is that only in the note 7 pro?

  •  

    Can somebody please let me know what is the difference among Redmi Note 5, 6 and 7?

  • +2 votes

    Gotta say after recently buying a Mi 9 as my first Xiaomi I'm really impressed with their phones. Currently awaiting the new Redmi K20 Pro(?) or poco F2 as an upgrade for my girlfriend's LG G6. Feel like you get such great value with these phones.

  • +1 vote

    On B28, this is what I don't get. The only reason we ever get Chinese phones with B28 is Taiwan because Taiwan uses B28. Xiaomi sell their phones in their stores in Taiwan, right? I know they sell Mi A2's in Taiwan. So why can't we get Mi A2's and the rest with B28?

    •  

      Not just Taiwan… Many countries use B28. Google is your friend. Dont know why they are referred to as Taiwan versions.
      Typically Redmi phone with the extended band capability have a model number ending in H. Factory Global versions end in G.
      The only Redmi H version phone that was obtainable online was the RN5AI but the seller no longer has stock. B&H Photo NY.
      The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite which is a similar price has B28 … but a smaller battery.

  •  

    Yeah, now that I am using Optus network, B28 is important too. I was looking to get it for my parent but have to look somewhere else now, maybe Sharp or Asus.

    EBay has a multitude for the same price, in Australia.

      That's not Australian stock. The seller is in China. They can put anything they like in the 'Item Location' but their profile location can't lie.

      Besides with that you're paying more!

  •  

    Hi,

    Anyone else thinking getting the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The Chinese ROM is in English and Chinese. But there is now a Global Stable ROM which is used in the Indian market (v10.2.6.0)

    Yeah I know it's a bit more, but the better CPU and proper camera sensor is very appealing.

    Thoughts?

    •  

      If you are waiting for the pro, maybe wait for the new redmi phone being launched on the 15th. Will probably be around the same price.

      If you do get the note 7 pro, just install the xiaomi.eu rom for a full experience. The only difference will be a few less mobile bands than the global note 7 version of the phone.

  •  

    How important is B28 in Australia? Is it essential?

    • +4 votes

      Optus and Telstra use it for 4G. It has better indoor penetration but it's not exactly essential.

    Hi Clear, how long would you expect for the express shipping to Melbourne? Is the stock in Australia?

    Thanks
