Redmi Note 7 was introduced just couple of days ago, but the official announcement missed to mention an important feature – the ports and buttons have watertight seals. Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun now confirmed that on Weibo.
He says that the engineering team put a lot of effort to design watertight seals for all the weak points of the handset – the SIM card tray, USB-C port, 3.5mm audio jack, the buttons and you can even find some around the camera module. Moreover, there’s a membrane on the loudspeaker as well.
Redmi Note 7 isn’t IP-certified, but it will probably survive some splashes, accidental drops in water and everyday use in a moderate dusty environment. We hope it steps out of China soon enough.
