Xiaomi is at it again making unusual durability tests. This time, we have the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro as the subject.
If you remember, they also did some unusual stunts when promoting the Redmi Note 7. They used the device as a chopping board and to smash fruits. But now with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, things are getting more ridiculous.
In a video posted on their Weibo account, you can see two Redmi Note 8 Pros being laid flat on the ground, with an enormous weightlifter stepping on them.
The weightlifter then carried a 90kg barbell over his head. After the stunt was done, the lifter stepped back, and the judges were greeted with a perfectly working, damage-free Redmi Note 8 Pro.
So, what are the takeaways here? First, that bodybuilder can sure lift weights. Also, the Redmi Note 8 Pro has a sturdy chassis and tough glass screen that can handle that much weight.
But, the video is just a mere durability test. We still want to see how it can withstand being scratched, bent, and dropped. Hopefully, YouTube channel JerryRigEverything will handle that for us.
We’ll be learning more about this device once it goes official on August 29. For now, you can check out the things that we already know about this device while we wait.
