Xiaomi announced that their latest smartphone Redmi, or Redmi Note 7 is resistant to water and cooking. The manufacturer declares that an appropriate design has been used that ensures waterproofness, but the smartphone has not received the appropriate IP certificate.
Redmi Note 7 is resistant to water and dust, but Xiaomi will not take this into account for the warranty
The Redmi Note 7 screen has a reinforced Gorilla Glass 5 glass, its very high resistance you can see on the video here. CEO Xiaomi, Lei Jun was asked in an interview about the resilience of the new Redmi and admitted that the smartphone is adequately protected from dust and water. All connectors and buttons have been designed so that they do not leak water or dust. However, he also added that the company would not accept the Redmi Note 7 warranty if the problem arises due to water or dust.
It seems to me that one iPhone was similar. In interviews, representatives of Apple reported that it is waterproof, but the company did not take this into account in the event of a defect. I am surprised by this matter, or it is or not. For the record Redmi Note 7 is the first smartphone "Xiaomi" which has 18 months warranty, previous models only offered 12 months.
