Red Pepper, which has many ‘names’ such as iLa and Xiaolajiao already comes with way more attractive models than earlier. And though its smartphones mainly use a design of top branded models, the manufacturer has done a great job, and now almost all of its newly announced smartphones come with a decent specs list. A few days back, the Red Pepper 7X was announced as a cost-effective full-screen phone that is going to fight against the owner of that title, the Xiaomi Redmi 5. But the latter seems to be an absolute leader in the market. So let’s get acquainted with the key features of the Xiaolajiao 7X in order to understand how it will compete with a Redmi model.
The Red Pepper 7X (aka Xiaolajiao 7X) sports a 5.5-inch full-screen with a resolution of 1440×720 pixels (HD+) and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The back is made of a metal, and it comes with a matte surface. The camera layout is identical to what we have seen on the iPhone X. Thus the sensors are placed vertically on the left upper corner. But the flashlight is placed below the lens instead of being in the middle. This 5+13MP dual-camera supports panoramic, night shot, watermarks and up to 11 other shooting features in total. As for the 5MP front camera, it supports facial recognition.
Under the hood, the Red Pepper 7X carries a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor (4x Cortex-A53 @ 1.5GHz + 4x Cortex-A53 @ 1GHz), 4GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM, Mali-T860 MP2 GPU, and 2800mAh Li-Po non-removable battery. It runs on Freeme OS based on Andrews 7.0.
The phone is available for 899 yuan ($140), which is more than the Redmi 5 by 100 yuan only.
