The Redmi Note 7 launched some weeks ago is one of the best selling smartphones for the month of January. This smartphone now has a cheap protective case which hides the rear fingerprint sensor. Xiaomi CEO, Lei Jun said that the company designed this “hollow” protective case because many users expressed dissatisfaction with the exposure of the rear fingerprint sensor on smartphones after a protective case is used. With this hollow case, the rear fingerprint sensor of the Redmi Note 7 is almost concealed and it can not be easily seen. This hollow case hit the market today for only 27 yuan ($4).
This perforated case is currently available in four colours – yellow, black, orange and skyblue. It is understood that this “hole” protective shell has a 0.8 mm ultra-thin feel, with a unique mesh design withPC material, anti-slip, and anti-skid features. Some netizens said that this case is a bit scary but Lei Jun replied: “In fact, it is good.” Previously, Xiaomi Product Director had shared his experience regarding the new protective case. “It feels good, it has a hard touch, and it looks cool after it is put on…”
