Xiaomi launches Redmi Note 4 starting at Rs 9999

22 January 2017

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 may not fare as well as the Redmi Note 3, which was one of India's most popular smartphones for 2016, because of stiff competition from Lenovo, Coolpad and Huawei.

The three variants of the Redmi Note 4 will be sold for Rs.9,999 (32GB/2GB RAM), Rs.10,999 (32GB/3GB RAM) and Rs.12,999 (64GB/4GB RAM). It is powered by a 4100mAh battery, measures 151x76x8.35mm, and weighs 175 grams. The focus therefore lies on improved thermal efficiency and power-saving over say the Snapdragon 650-based Redmi Note 3. The price of Redmi Note 4 is also expected to hover around the same figure which Note 3 sported during its launch.

While it looks nearly identical to the earlier Redmi Note 4, the new version does away with antenna lines and improves the 13-megapixel camera with a CMOS sensor boasting pixels sized at 1.12micron for better low-light shots. Also, this is company's first smartphone to sport a full 2.5D curved glass on the front.

Xiaomi continues to bet big on India, this time with an Indian version of its budget Redmi Note 4 phone, which the company previously launched last year in its home market of China.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF (phase detection autofocus), an f/2.0 aperture, and dual-tone LED flash.

According to the United Nations, around 150,000 people are now displaced as a result of the three-month-old offensive. Almost 12,500 people were forced to flee their homes just over the past week, the United Nations said.

India price: The Redmi Note 4 starts at Rs 9,999 for the base 2GB RAM and 32GB memory version.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 packs the latest Snapdragon 625 processor as compared to Snapdragon 650 on the Redmi Note 3. The Snapdragon 625 is notably the first 600-series chipset to be built on a power-efficient 14nm process. Expandable storage is available on the Redmi Note 4 via a hybrid dual-SIM card configuration, supporting microSD cards (up 128GB).

The front snappers on both the devices are the same 5MP unit. Clearly, the photos shot on the Redmi Note 4 look better and detailed compared to the ones shot on the Redmi Note 3. Packing an impressive processor and insane battery life, the Redmi Note 3 rounded it up with an unbelievable price tag that made competing with the device really hard for others. "2016 was a huge success for Xiaomi as we crossed US$1 billion worth of revenue in the year, and 2017 will be more significant as we strive towards achieving new milestones and introducing many more exciting new products in India".

The device also comes with an infrared sensor and a fingerprint sensor at the back of the device, right below the rear camera. The budget device is 4G VoLTE enabled and supports two SIM cards.

The device will be made available in three colours: Matte Black, Dark Grey and Gold.
