Unboxing The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 (Price Check) comes in a simple white cardboard box. Let’s unbox it, and see what we find inside!

When you fully unbox it, you will find the following items :

  • One Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 smartphone
  • One Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 clear TPU bumper case
  • One set of Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 documents
  • One Xiaomi MDY-09-EW USB charger (10 watt)
  • One USB Type C data and power cable
  • One SIM tray extractor pin

While we always like it when brands include a bumper case, this bumper case falls short of our expectations. We will explain it in our close-up look at the Redmi Note 7 and the bumper case.
