It has also been confirmed that the phone will pack 48-megapixel camera just like the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
In terms of specifications, there isn’t any information available online, but considering last major announcement by Manu Kumar Jain with Qualcomm, it seems that Redmi Note 7S could pack the latest Snapdragon 730 or Snapdragon 730G chipsets, which are considerably superior than the Snapdragon 675 SoC seen on Redmi Note 7 Pro.
