Xiaomi Redmi 6’s Screen is Durable Enough to Crack Walnuts [Video]

Walnuts may be tasty but cracking them open is a hassle, especially if you don’t have a nutcracker. Thankfully Xiaomi has thought about this problem beforehand and has made a phone that is capable of cracking walnuts open.

Xiaomi just published a video of a Redmi 6 cracking walnuts to show its durability – the test was done by company President Lin Bin himself as he cracks open walnuts using the recently launched phone’s screen.

As you’d expect, the Redmi 6 went unharmed through the test and did not crack throughout the video. Check out the video below,

Most Durable Budget Phone?

Xiaomi Redmi 6 was recently launched by the company for the low-budget midrange segment and comes in two different variants – the other version being the entry-level Redmi 6A. It features a 5.45-inch IPS LCD, 18:9 aspect ratio, at an HD+ (720 x 1440) resolution.

Xiaomi is among the few companies that offer a metal body for entry-level phones, so the results from the walnut-test are quite impressive. On paper, Redmi 6 does not have Gorilla Glass on it so it means the company used a different display protection solution. Still, it’s doing a fairly good job.

The company assured its customers that the new Redmi 6 has successfully passed a total of 14571 quality assurance tests – its durability is the same as Xiaomi’s high-end Mi flagship lineup. Moreover, the new model underwent strict part supplier screening with over 70% ruled out.

HMD Global posted a similar durability test video of a Nokia 6 cracking a bag full of walnuts, Xiaomi seems to have taken the cue and has done the same for the Redmi 6.

  • Impressive but lol, those seem to be what we call here “China” walnut which are soft and you can break open with your fingers even easily. Someone do the test on the desi type of walnut please. :grin:
