Today a video surfaced of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 being disassembled in a step by step process. The video was originally found on QQ, a Chinese video sharing platform, and has been reuploaded to YouTube.
The Redmi Note 7 has a similar build to many other smartphones. The first step it removing the rear glass to see whats inside. After removing the nanoSIM tray, the fingerprint sensor’s cable, and a few screws, the logic board shields can come off to reveal more of the phones innards.
There are some key takeaways from the teardown video. First, the Redmi Note 7 has a USB-C port on a secondary board, so it shouldnt be terribly difficult to replace in the event the port goes bad. Second, there are two ribbon cables that go over the battery which connect the mainboard to the lower components like the loudspeaker, microphones, haptic motor, and the secondary board which houses the USB-C port.
Next, the lens cover on the dual camera setup is a single part, which makes it easy to replace if the glass cover on the camera has broken. All the phones internals are mounted behind the phones display, which looks to be difficult to replace as a single part. Considering this phones retail price for the Chinese market is right around $200, this probably won’t be a big deal for most.
Weve been hearing a lot of buzz about the latest Redmi Note device. This is a mid-range device that comes with an entry-level price tag. The device features a 48MP ISOCELL Samsung camera sensor for photos and a Snapdragon 660 CPU.
Xiaomi has ambitiously predicted it will sell a million Redmi Note 7 units in the first month and the phones first flash sale in China already sold 100,000 devices with the next flash sale happening this Friday January 18.
Seeing as the phone was only just announced last week, weve yet to learn about future availability for India and European markets. The Redmi Note 7 has a 48MP + 5MP dual camera, a 4,00 mAh battery, and is powered by a Snapdragon 660 CPU. There’s also a 6.3-inch FHD+ display, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a waterdrop notch that houses a 13MP selfie camera.
