Having said that, the Redmi Note 7 isn’t IP-certified. It is somewhat close to being splash proof. The company claims Redmi Note 7 has gone through the same quality tests as Xiaomi’s flagship models. It will come with an extended warranty period of up to 18 months in China, instead of 12 months.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 smartphone in China under its newly created brand Redmi . The brand Redmi will be an independent brand while separating it from the Xiaomi’s Mi lineup. As per Lei Jun, the decision of sub-brand is taken to make sure Xiaomi gives more attention to the Redmi brand.

The new Redmi Note 7 can be considered as a huge update from Redmi Note 6 Pro in terms of camera, refreshed design and more. Here are the top five features that make Redmi Note 7 a total value for money phone.
