It’s no surprise that Xiaomi loves to woo its fans with the most fabulously designed handsets packed with a bunch of powerful specs, and this time isn’t an exception. The Chinese smartphone maker recently launched the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (with two variants).
While many tech enthusiasts rightly predicted its arrival well ahead of time, few knew what the features would be like. By the way, in case you are too curious to know the price, just hold on a bit longer. Let’s have a look at the specs first, and trust me; you won’t be surprised once the price is revealed.
5.5-inch full HD 2.5D curved glass display
1.2 GHz Deca-Core processor
Android 6.0 with MIUI 8
2GB / 3GB RAM
16GB / 64GB internal storage capacity
13MP primary camera
5 MP secondary camera
4100 mAh battery
Alright! If you are still wondering what the device will cost, let’s put an end to the suspense. The 2GB RAM variant will cost somewhere around Rs. 9,000, while the one with a 4GB RAM will come with a price tag of approximately Rs. 12,000. That’s awesome, isn’t it? Right from a larger screen to the most powerful battery, you get it all.
This 5.5 incher will be powered by a Deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor clocked at a speed of 1.2 GHz along with a Mali-T880MP4 GPU. With a 10-core CPU on board, speed will never be an issue.
The Redmi Note 4 will run on the company’s latest stock firmware, the MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0. In terms of storage, you will have two options at hand. The 2 GB model comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage memory, while the 3GB has 64GB of space. However, if that’s not sufficient enough to store all your data, an expandable storage of 128GB will make you feel at ease.
Interestingly, the device features a hybrid SIM slot. So, you can either have 2 SIM cards installed or one SIM card and a microSD card.
In terms of camera, the Redmi Note 4 has a 13MP rear camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF). The camera can record 1080p video at 30fps. On the front is a 5 MP camera, which according to Xiaomi, is capable of capturing 85-degree wide angle shots.
Amazingly, the device packs in a powerful 4100 mAh battery. It’s hard to find a handset with a battery that powerful, at least for now.
The device will be available in China through the MI online store starting August 26th. There is no word yet on its release in the Indian market, but you can surely expect it in the next couple of weeks.
With a bunch of powerful hardware packed in and the price that doesn’t make you sweat, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is indeed a ‘Value-For-Money’ device. So, in case you are looking for a high-end smartphone, but not quite ready to shed more than a few thousand bucks, this device is, without a doubt, the right choice.
