Well we expected Xiaomi to launch something largish today and are gut feeling was correct with the Beijing brand announcing the Redmi Note 4.
As we all know the Redmi range of phones has been the bread and butter for Xiaomi over the years, and as time has gone by we have seen the mini brand benefit from a range of devices.
The Redmi Note 3 launched last year and was a popular device for it’s larger screen, metal body and good pricing, now Xiaomi hope to recapture that success with the release of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.
Gizchina News of the week
Specs for the Redmi Note 4 are the same across the board with the only differences between the two models available being the amount of internal storage, RAM and pricing.
As for these specs well they include a new unibody metal design with chamfered edges and 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display with 2.5D curved glass up front.
The rear of the Redmi Note 4 s where we find the 13 mega-pixel rear camera and like previous models we get the benefit of super fast PDAF autofocus, but now also a larger F2.0 aperture as well. Eagle eyed readers will have noticed that the fingerprint scanner has remained on the rear too, not moved to the front like some rumours had suggested.
Here for the specs and nothing else? Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 full specifications.
The Redmi Note 4 comes with MIUI 8 pre-installed and this runs on a 2.1Ghz Mediatek Helio X20 10 core chipset. A hybrid SIM slot will let the user have either two sims in operation or a single SIM and up to 128GB SD card.
Last but not least is the large 4100mAh battery and a choice of colours.
Chinese pricing for the phone starts at just 899 Yuan ($135) for the 16GB + 2GB RAM model rising to only 1199 Yuan ($180) for the 64GB + 3GB version, which looks like a bargain to us! What do you think?
