Xiaomi launches Redmi Note 4 with 10-core processor, 4100 mAh battery and MIUI 8 in China
Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 4, the successor to Redmi Note 3, in China today. Like previous Xiaomi devices, the Redmi Note 4 again has some mouthwatering specifications at affordable prices. The new phone is available in two variants, one with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory for CNY 899 (around Rs. 9000) and the other with 3 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory for CNY 1199 (around Rs. 12000). The smartphone would be available in China beginning August 26 through the company's online store, Mi.com. There has been no announcement regarding its global availability in general so as of now, we don't have much clue about when it would hit Indian shores. But we are hopeful of it coming soon.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has a full metal unibody construction. It sports a 5.5 inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display is made of 2.5D curved glass and supports pixel density of 401 ppi. The device sports a Deca core MediaTek Helio X20 processor. In both the two variants mentioned above, we have the option to expand storage up to 128 GB via a microSD card. The GPU powering the device is Mali-T880 MP4.
The smartphone has a 13 Megapixels rear camera with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture and Dual LED flash. The front camera sports a resolution of 5 Megapixels with an ability to click 85-degree wide angle pictures. The dual SIM phone runs MIUI 8 out of the box, which is based on Android Marshmallow 6.0. The dual SIM slot is a hybrid one where you can replace the second SIM with a microSD card. The device also sports a fingerprint scanner at the back.
Connectivity options on Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 include 4G, VoLTE, Bluetooth, microUSB, GPS and Glonass. The phone carries a weight of 175 grams. The smartphone has a battery capacity of 4100 mAh and is available in three colors: Gold, Grey and Silver.
This new smartphone from Xiaomi has some great specs at a price close to what it was for Redmi Note 3. A deca core CPU along with a 4100 mAh battery and Xiaomi's latest MIUI 8 means customers would get the best of hardware, software and services. Recently, Redmi Note 3 has broken the record for shipping highest number of units in India's online market in a particular quarter. And looking at Redmi Note 4's specs and its price, the device might very well follow suit once it launches in the country.
