Xiaomi has sent out early invites for a launch event in New Delhi on January 19, and the Chinese company is expected to launch the Redmi Note 4 in the country. The highlight of the smarpthone is its metal build and deca-core SoC, though the company may launch another variant in the country.
To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 was launched in China back in August. It was made available in two variants – 2GB of RAM/ 16GB inbuilt storage model was priced at CNY 899 (approximately Rs. 9,000), while the 3GB of RAM/ 64GB storage model was priced at CNY 1,199 (approximately Rs. 12,000). We can expect Redmi Note 4 price in India to be roughly the same. The smartphone was launched in Gold, Grey, and Silver colours. It bears a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel.
The dual-SIM (Micro+Nano) Redmi Note 4 runs MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display with a pixel density of 401ppi. It is powered by a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 coupled with Mali-T880 MP4 GPU.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF (phase detection autofocus), an f/2.0 aperture, and dual-tone LED flash. The 5-megapixel front camera sports an 85-degree wide angle lens. The smartphone supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM card configuration.
Apart from the fingerprint scanner, the Redmi Note 4 also sports an infrared sensor. Connectivity options include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, 4G with VoLTE, Bluetooth, GPS, Micro-USB, and Glonass. The smartphone is powered by a 4100mAh battery, measures 151x76x8.35mm, and weighs 175 grams.
