Xiaomi-Redmi-Note-4

Xiaomi, as anticipated, has unveiled the Redmi Note 4 smartphone in China. The latest Redmi Note-series handset will be available in two variants: 2GB of RAM and 16GB inbuilt storage model priced at CNY 899 (approximately Rs. 9,000), and a 3GB of RAM and 64GB storage model priced at CNY 1,199 (approximately Rs. 12,000). Both the variants will go on sale initially in China from August 26 and will be available via the company’s online store, Mi.com.

The biggest highlight of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is its metal build. It features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display and sports a pixel density of 401ppi. It is powered by a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 coupled with Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. Both the 2GB and 3GB RAM models support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB).

The Redmi Note 4 runs the company’s latest MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It supports hybrid SIM slot which means users can go with a combination of either dual-SIM cards or one Micro-SIM and one microSD card. It comes with fingerprint scanner which is placed on the back panel right below the primary camera and dual-tone LED flash.

It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF (phase detection autofocus) and f/2.0 aperture. There is a 5-megapixel front camera on board as well which Xiaomi claims can click 85-degree wide angle shots. The rear camera can record 1080p videos at 30fps.

Apart from the fingerprint scanner, the Redmi Note 4 also sports an infrared sensor. Connectivity options include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, 4G with VoLTE, Bluetooth, GPS, Micro-USB, and Glonass. It measures 151x76x8.35mm and weighs 175 grams. The Redmi Note 4 is backed by a 4100mAh battery. The handset will be available in Gold, Grey, and Silver colours.

Update: A previous version of this article incorrectly mentioned the inclusion of a USB Type-C port, based on the company listing. The company has since corrected the listing, and clarified the inclusion of a Micro-USB port.
