The Redmi Note 7 will be the company’s first Redmi series smartphone to ship with USB Type-C port. Additionally, the smartphone supports Quick Charge 4.0 for fast charging.

Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun on Weibo has claimed that the Redmi Note 7 comes with watertight seals which is something not seen on phones in this price range. Jun has revealed that Redmi Note 7 uses watertight seals at essential points like ports and buttons to protect the device from internal damage. He specifically mentioned that the SIM card slot, USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm audio jack uses watertight seals. However, this doesn’t mean that the Redmi Note 7 is a waterproof phone, but the protection may save the phone from accidental spills.
