Redmi Note 7 Pro is one of the most successful and popular smartphones by Xiaomi in the Indian market. This phone has everything that a smartphone user ask in this price range. However, in the past few months, Redmi Note 7 Pro has been facing tough competition from other brands like Realme, Vivo, and Samsung who also brought their flagship phone in this range loaded with a lot of smart features.
Well, Redmi Note 7 Pro (device codename: violet) users can rejoice now though, because the device is now officially supported by LineageOS 16, courtesy of efforts from XDA Senior Member xdatman. This means that you will now receive regular nightly builds directly from Lineage’s automated build system, and thus be up-to-date on features and bug fixes from Lineage.
But before installing any custom ROM, you need to an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery. You can find the instructions on the XDA Developers forums. The only problem with the custom ROM on Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro is you cannot use the 48-megapixel camera mode. Still, you can use the rear camera for pixel-binned 12MP images.
Redmi Note 7 Pro has been receiving a lot of updates from Xiaomi to improve user experience on this phone. The phone has received updates in the past that improved the camera performance from the 48MP rear camera by a good margin. The device is also included in Xiaomi’s Android Q plans, though the update will take some time and only land in the first quarter of 2020.
