Those were delivered by Xiaomi's Regional Director for Southeast Asia John Chen, who said it's not happening. The Pro will remain exclusive to China and India due to Redmi's product strategy. The naming scheme makes things a little confusing as the "Redmi Note 7" in India has a 12MP main sensor on the back while the 48MP sensor is reserved for the Pro model.

Pocophone F1 Gets Game Turbo With The Latest Miui Global Beta Update
