Although the company hasn’t unveiled its pricing, the Redmi Note 4 is currently available for $219 on its website, which means the device should hit the Indian market priced at around Rs. 15,000.
The device was previously not being launched in India because it sported a deca-cor MediaTek Helio processor and Xiaomi is banned from selling devices with that SoC due to a patent dispute with Ericsson in the country. Now it’ll be launching in India with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
Upgraded Memory and Storage
The Note 4 gets the option of a 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variant, which is double the size of storage available on the Note 3 variants — 16GB and 32GB. The internal memory is expandable using a microSD card (up to 128GB).
The device comes in three variants of 2GB RAM alongwith 16GB storage or 3GB RAM alongwith 32GB or 64GB storage.
Big Display and High-Speed Rear Camera
The phone will sport a 5.5″ Full-HD display with 2.5D Arc screen design, a 13MP quick-response primary camera and a 5MP front camera. The primary camera has been slashed from the previously available 16MP snapper on its predecessor but enjoys technologies such as PDAF and HDR.
Powerful Battery and Other Features
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 packs a 4100mAh battery, which is big enough to support the device for several hours of usage and should at least last an entire day of normal usage.
The new Note device by Xiaomi will be launched with Android Marshmallow-based MIUI8 but might receive the MIUI9 update as soon as it is rolled out. The device also sports a fingerprint scanner, placed below the camera.
The exact specs of the device and its price will be updated as soon as Xiaomi unveils the Note 4 at its event in New Delhi.
