Download LineageOS v16 Android 9.0 Pie Redmi Note 7 Lavender.
LineageOS is the most popular custom Android ROM available for a wide range of devices. Xiaomi devices are not exclusive for its availability. LineageOS is available for almost all Xiaomi devices from Redmi, Redmi Note, to Mi variants.
The ROM was built upon its predecessor, CyanogenMod that was forked in December 2016.
Inevitably, the popularity of CyanogenMod also comes to LineageOS as its iteration.
Many reasons give a helping hand for its popularity. Stable performance, sleekness, fast and battery friendly system are just a few.
LineageOS is based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and hence, it has simple user interface (UI). AOSP is basically Android at its purest form.
You’ll find no bloatware or useless apps.
Redmi Note 7 users can now be happy. The famous custom Android ROM has been available for the device.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 has codename Lavender. It is available in three variants: China, Global, and India. The China variant and Global variant has similar specs but they have different MIUI version.
Redmi Note 7 India is the most different thing. It boasts similar chipset and processor. However, its main camera specification is different.
While China and Global variant sports 48MP sensor, the India variant has only 12MP sensor. All Redmi Note 7 variants have the same codename which is Lavender.
Please don’t get confused with Redmi Note 7 Pro that has codename Violet.
