Thanks to licensing issues with Ericsson, Xiaomi had to prepare a Snapdragon-powered variant of their newest Redmi series phone, the Redmi Note 4 for the Indian market. There’s naturally a lot of interest around the device from Xiaomi buyers worldwide, but the Snapdragon-powered Redmi Note 4 is a bit hard to get hold of outside India.
That might change very soon, since word is that Xiaomi is planning to announce a Snapdragon version of the Redmi Note 4 in China. Before the Redmi Note 3 launch in India, Xiaomi announced a Snapdragon version of the phone — unofficially, and then officially, called the Redmi Note 3 Pro — in China.

Xiaomi could very well announce the same phone in China, along with a couple new RAM variants. Like in India, the phone could be made available in 2GB and 4GB RAM variants, besides the ‘standard’ 3GB RAM version in China.
