AndroidPure’s opinion about the Redmi Note 7S launch
The Redmi Note 7S was announced in a pre-recorded video, which may have overstepped some ethics.
Manu Jain, VP of Xiaomi, and head of Xiaomi India unboxed the device in a YouTube video, which featured a scratch test that included the Samsung Galaxy A50, Vivo V15 Pro, and Realme 3 Pro. Such tactics are morally questionable and could have been avoided, given the impressive specs of the device.
