Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Still Works After Being Sent To Space
In the month of January, Xiaomi turned its Redmi lineup of smartphones into an independent brand. The newly separated company launched its first device in the form of Redmi Note 7 which due to its value for money made seismic waves in the budget smartphone segment. Apart from the not so strong plastic chassis, it scores well in all areas including looks and performance.
Wow! Congrats to the #Xiaomi global team for launching #RedmiNote7 into space and back … 35,000 meters above sea level, with external temp of -56°C, and still working perfectly! ??— Donovan Sung (@donovansung) May 6, 2019

A senior Xiaomi executive, Donovan Sung has shared a Tweet which boasts of the reliability and build quality of the Redmi Note 7. The Mi team launched a couple of units of the aforementioned smartphone into space which surprisingly made it’s way back to Earth in an unharmed condition. The whole stunt was performed with the help of a helium balloon which was attached to a contraption holding multiple units of the Redmi Note 7.
The Tweet highlights, the smartphones made their way into space with a recorded elevation of 35,000 metres above sea level. Noteworthy, the temperature the Redmi Note 7 units had to encounter at the height was -56 ° C which is far lower than most units would ever be exposed to. The whole act was performed in order to reflect the durability of the handset which it surely excelled at.
For reference, the Redmi Note 7 sports a 6.3 inch LCD display that has full HD resolution of 2340 x 1080 px and is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Under the hood, it features the Snapdragon 660 SoC that is comprised of an octa core CPU and Adreno 512 GPU. In term of optics, it has a dual rear camera setup which consists of 48 MP + 5 MP sensors (global variant) and a 13 MP selfie camera. It is powered by a large 4,000 mAh battery and runs on latest Android 9 Pie. For biometric security, the smartphone features a rear mounted fingerprint sensor.
