While Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3 is still a good smartphone to go for, the company is now rumored to launch the Redmi Note 4 smartphone in India as early as January. The base variant of the smartphone was priced at 899 Yuan (roughly Rs 9,000) in China. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 could be the first smartphone to be launched in 2017 from the company.
Xiaomi has observed success in 2016 as smartphones like Redmi Note 3, Redmi 3s, and Redmi 3s Prime did well in the Indian market and secured 7.4 percent market share in Q3 2016. Its concept phone Xiaomi Mi Mix flaunts a bezel-less display which received a good response in China. The company is also looking to start the New Year by making its debut at the upcoming CES 2017.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is the successor to the Redmi Note 3 and was launched back in August this year in China. In first sight, the Redmi Note 4 looks quite similar to its predecessor. The Redmi Note 4 comes with a metal unibody design with a 2.5D curved glass on the top.
Coming to the specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the smartphone features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display wrapped under a 2.5D curved glass. Under its hood, there is a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor; however, it is expected to offer Snapdragon 625 SoC in India in Redmi Note 4. Due to a court injunction, Xiaomi cannot trade MediaTek powered smartphones in India. The handset is also expected to come in 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM options. The Smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
For photography, the Redmi Note 4 offers a 13MP primary rear camera with LED flash, PDAF, and f/2.0 aperture. For selfies, there is a 5MP front camera with 85-degree wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture. The device is juiced up with a 4100mAh battery which is claimed to deliver a full day of life on a single charge. The connectivity options on the device include hybrid dual-SIM card slot, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.
Coming to the pricing, the Redmi Note 4 smartphone is available in China at a price of 899 Yuan (roughly Rs 9,000) for a 16GB storage model and 1199 Yuan (roughly Rs 12,000) for the 64GB model.
