Xiaomi has tweeted that it will launch a new Redmi smartphone soon in the country. The tweet holds no information on the device name or the timeline for the phone launch; however Xiaomi has shared an image which has the night skyline in the background, and the tagline ‘Power in your hands’. Furthermore, Xiaomi India’s VP Manu Jain also tweeted that this would be the second biggest announcement this month. This means that the Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Prime would be announced before the end of this month only. The first announcement was that of the Mi Home store launch in Bengaluru – Xiaomi’s first in India.

In March, Xiaomi had confirmed that it would launch successors to the Redmi 3s and Redmi 3s Prime in the country. The successor Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Prime was launched in China in November last year, and it’s only fitting that it brings the said smartphone to India. This announcement comes at a time when the entry-level Redmi smartphone in the country, the Redmi 4A is scarcely available to buy due to limited stocks.
