Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi last week launched the much awaited Redmi Note 7 smartphone at an event that was held in China. What made the launch even more prominent was the fact that Redmi Note 7 is the first smartphone to be launched under the independent Redmi sub-brand. The smartphone has primarily garnered appreciation for packing powerful specifications at an affordable price. However, the most notable feature of Redmi Note 7 happens to be its dual rear camera setup that comprises of a 48MP sensor and a 5MP sensor.
Just after the launch of the smartphone, a video that has been shared on Chinese instant messaging platform QQ shows the newly launched Redmi Note 7 being taken apart to showcase its internals. The teardown video begins by showing the removal of Xiaomi Redmi Note 7’s glossy back panel and hybrid nanoSIM/microSD tray. The next thing to be removed is the smartphone’s fingerprint scanner’s ribbon cable. The device’s primary logic board and other important hardware components are revealed after some thin plates are taken off.
According to GSMArena, the teardown video also showcases Redmi Note 7’s USB Type-C port which is there on a secondary logic board. The placement of the port is such that it would make it easier to repair it or replace it in case it stops working. Two more ribbon cables are placed over Redmi Note 7’s 4,000mAh battery and they connect the primary and secondary boards of the smartphone with each other.
We should mention that Redmi Note 7’s dual rear camera setup is covered by a single lens cover, which also means that replacing or repairing it would be easy.
