Is European Galileo GPS supported on redmi note 7 ?
could anyone test this out and post screenshot. Use the GPSTest app by Dr. Sean Barbeau on play store, run it and see if Galileo (EU flag) GPS signals are received. Post the screenshot here.

for reference

Yes, it's supported and can be used as it did here.

I tested twice and phone seems to see those satellites as SOC supports it, but it cant connect to them. Is there a way we can enable them? Or is it still hardware thing?

It's a coverage thing...
It takes a minimum of four Galileo satellites to be visible in the local sky to fix a receiver’s position.

I stand corrected, You are right. I did more testing and it seems that Galileo satellites are used to obtain GPS location. Our SOC works a bit weird, it sees less satellites but it is faster and more precise that P10 GPS.

This is my result. It connects but apparently with heavily different strength. Huge gap between inhouse use and being outside...

I'll test this a bit more at some time.
