Redmi Note 7 Includes Watertight Seals to Protect Against Water Damage

Redmi Note 7 was introduced in China on January 10

Highlights
  • Redmi Note 7 is almost splash-proof but not water-resistant
  • Redmi Note 7 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660
  • The phone goes on sale in China on January 15

Redmi Note 7 comes with watertight seals on all ports, buttons and around camera module, Xiaomi co-founder Lei Jun has revealed. The smartphone, which was unveiled in China last week, is the first smartphone under Xiaomi's newly formed Redmi sub-brand. The presence of these watertight seals makes the phone almost splash-resistant and the phone should be able to withstand light breeze or accidental drops in water, but it is not IP-certified water-resistant. The company also doesn't claim any IP-certification in the marketing material.

In a Weibo post, Lei Jun noted that Redmi Note 7 comes with a waterproof design on the buttons as well as ports. All the weak points in the smartphone, which can let water slip inside, like the SIM card tray, USB Type-C port, 3.5mm audio jack, buttons, and the camera module have been reinforced with watertight seals. The company has also included a membrane on the loudspeaker to stop water from seeping in. Even after these implementations, the smartphone isn't rated water-resistant, and the company maintains the same on the product page for the phone. The page mentions the phone is dust and splash-proof but only for a short amount of time and for a small amount of water. It cannot be soaked in water nor does it support working in seriously dusty environments, the company writes on its website.
