It’s about time. More than two months after its debut in India, the Redmi Note 7 is finally launched in the Philippines — and with an 18-month warranty at that!
Yes, in a market where 12 months of warranty is standard, you’re getting a longer guarantee period from Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand. If that doesn’t show confidence in the product, we don’t know what does. If that doesn’t make you buy from official offline and online (Lazada, in particular) stores only, we don’t know what will.
