Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4 device which was launched in January in three variants of 2GB/32GB, 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB retailing at a price of Rs 9,999, Rs 10,999 and 12,999, respectively.
The Chinese company had earlier failed to launch its product in India alongside the global release, primarily due to a patent dispute with Ericsson in the country — surrounding the Mediatek SoC that power the device. It was later released with Qualcomm’s 14nm Snapdragon 625 chipset.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will go on sale at 12pm (IST) on the company’s exclusive partner e-commerce website Flipkart and their own Mi.com.
The Redmi Note 4 is available in Matte Black, Dark Silver and Gold colours.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Specs
The Redmi Note 4 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, which is thinner in size at 14nm to the 28nm Snapdragon 650 SoC present on its predecessor, hence, enhancing battery life and decreasing the heating. It will be supported by Adreno 506 GPU.
The Snapdragon 625 SoC is an octa-core unit which clocks at 2.0 GHz, a 200MHz higher speed than its predecessor. The device is backed by a 4100mAh battery, that is big enough to supply juice to the device for hours on end.
The phone sports 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 a Sony BSI sensor as well as bigger pixels.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 comes in three variants, as mentioned above. The lower priced variant comes with a combination of 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, the mid-priced variant comes with 3GB RAM alongwith 32GB of internal storage, while the costlier version among the three packs 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The storage is expandable to 128GB using a microSD card.
The device will work on Android Marshmallow-based MIUI8 out-of-the-box with Nougat based-MIUI9.
