Xiaomi launched the next Redmi phone in on Tuesday at an event in New Delhi. The Xiaomi Redmi 4 was widely expected to launch, and the company has indeed done just that. However, the model being launched in India is actually a variant of the Xiaomi Redmi 4X. To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi 4X was launched in China back in February. Xiaomi has decided to bring that smartphone to India instead, calling it the Redmi 4, in three separate variants. Specifications are nearly identical, with the Redmi 4X featuring upgraded innards in terms of its chipset – it runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC, as opposed to the Snapdragon 430 SoC on the Redmi 4.
