Last week, Xiaomi unveiled the much-anticipated Redmi Note 7 at an event in China. The first smartphone to be launched under the now-independent Redmi sub-brand, Redmi Note 7 has an impressive specifications sheet, especially considering its low base price of $150 (approximately Rs 10,500). However, the mid-range smartphone s standout feature is its dual-lens rear camera system, which comes with an insane 48-megapixel sensor, and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor.

In case you ve been wondering how Xiaomi managed to cram so much goodness into the Redmi Note 7, you may want to take a look at a recent teardown video of the smartphone.

This is followed by the hybrid nanoSIM/microSD tray and the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor s ribbon cable.

As noted by GSMArena, the video highlights that the Redmi Note 7 s USB Type-C port is on a secondary logic board, which should make it easy to repair/replace. There are also two ribbon cables that go over the smartphone s 4,000mAh battery, connecting the primary board to the secondary board, and components such as the haptic feedback motor. It s also worth mentioning that the smartphone s dual-lens primary camera module is shielded by a single lens cover, which should again make replacements/repairs a bit easier.
