Xiaomi recently introduced its new “Redmi” sub-brand in China, and the Redmi Note 7 is the first smartphone to launch under the brand. The smartphone has created a lot of buzz as it sports a 48-megapixel rear camera, and carries an affordable price tag. But it has been in the news for being a rugged smartphone that has already been put through a lot of stress test, which includes smashing walnuts, rolling down the stairs, and more.
Now, in the latest video, we can see the company’s CEO Lu Weibing take marketing to a whole new level where the smartphone was used as a cutting board for fruits. Weibing chopped a kiwi, banana and apple over the Redmi Note 7, and the Gorilla Glass stayed intact even after the blade hit the screen a few times.
