Redmi Note 7 Space Project

To celebrate Redmi Note 7’s arrival in the UK, Xiaomi has partnered with ​Sent Into Space​, sending Redmi Note 7 into space.  

The aim of this campaign was to prove Redmi Note 7’s great durability, resisting to the extremely low temperature and severe conditions of the space as well as emphasising its camera capabilities, successfully taking well-defined earth and space shots thanks to the 48MP sensor. 

Xiaomi UK ideated and delivered the entire campaign. All the creative assets generated from the space project will be available ​here ​on Saturday 4th May 2019 at 11.00am. 

A total of 5 phones have been sent into space; 1 being filmed, 1 taking photos and 3 in the cargo. The 3 cargo Redmi Note 7 will be given away to 3 lucky winners in the UK Mi Community in the next few days. 

Stunning all-new design 

Redmi Note 7 marks the greatest shift in design for the series, sporting a new premium style with the front and rear covered in Corning​®​ Gorilla​®​ Glass 5. The gorgeous 19.5:9 Dot Drop display measures 6.3 inches diagonally and has an FHD+ resolution of 2380 x 1080. The Redmi Note 7 screen's high pixel density and accurate colours (84% NTSC colour gamut) offer one of the finest visual experiences in its class. 

Class-leading camera for amazing photos even in low light 

On the back, Redmi Note 7 sports the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 backside illuminated CMOS sensor that has 48 million physical pixels. When taking pictures, the sensor uses Samsung’s Tetracell technology that merges four pixels to work as one large 1.6µm pixel. 

This greatly increases light sensitivity and makes the resulting 12MP image much brighter and clearer, even in low-light conditions. 

Furthermore, Xiaomi couples Redmi Note 7’s cameras with the latest AI features, including the night mode photography feature that was introduced along with Xiaomi’s flagship Mi MIX 3, as well as AI scene detection, AI beautify and AI portraits that allow users to create amazing photos with ease. 

Uncompromised performance and battery life 

Redmi Note 7 is powered by the Qualcomm​®​ Snapdragon™ 660 AIE SoC, with a 2.2GHz maximum clock speed, ensuring uncompromised peak performance when playing games and processing data. 

Redmi Note 7 carries on the Redmi tradition of excellent battery life with its large 4000mAh battery, which will last over a day for almost all users. Recharge via the USB Type-C port, and enjoy shorter charging times thanks to supporting for Qualcomm​®​ Quick Charge™ 4. 

Redmi Note 7 also includes an IR blaster capable of controlling numerous home appliances, such as televisions or air conditioners. In addition, it comes with Smart PA audio for louder and higher-quality sound. 

Built to last 

Redmi Note 7 is built to be reliable, designed to last so users can use it worry-free for longer. 

It features Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, making it less vulnerable to damage from drops. Corners on the chassis are also reinforced, further improving durability. In addition, buttons and ports come with watertight seals to lessen the impact of accidental splashes that may occur in everyday use.
