Mi Explorers invite

Xiaomi has an all-new Redmi device up its sleeve for Indian consumers and the company is looking for Mi Explorers to gear up for the launch. In its tweet, the company has called out Mi fans to be part of the Mi Explorers Challenge who could help Xiaomi perfect its next product based on user feedback. Although Xiaomi doesn t mention which Redmi device it will launch, but all speculations hint at the India debut of the Redmi Note 4 in January.

The Mi Explorers page explains the requirements for someone to participate in the challenge. The last date to apply for the Mi Explorers Challenge is December 30. Winners stand a chance to win the upcoming Redmi device. Once you log into the Mi account, you will be required to finish a questionnaire in five minutes in which the questions range from identifying Mi products to the terms and conditions of the Mi Explorers challenge. Once you complete the survey, Mi India will contact you in case you are selected to become an explorer. As the product launch is preceded by user feedback and data, the group of explorers are likely to get hands on the purported Redmi device before the masses.

Xiaomi had hosted a similar Mi Explorers program before the launch of the Redmi Note 3 phablet in India earlier this year. The Redmi Note 3 had been the highest-shipped smartphone ever online in India in any given quarter, according to a report on IDC. With the Redmi Note 4, the company intends to continue dominating the Indian smartphone sphere. The smartphone, priced at RMB 899 (approximately Rs 9,000) for the base variant, will yet again be one of the budget phablet smartphones offering a blend of looks and features.

Redmi Note 4 specifications and features

The Redmi Note 4 features a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display with 2.5D curved glass on top. In China, it is powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core SoC, but for the Indian market, Xiaomi will no doubt switch to a Qualcomm chipset, mostly Snapdragon 625 SoC. It comes in options of 2GB of RAM + 16GB onboard storage and 3GB of RAM + 64GB of onboard storage. It is expected that the company will also launch a third variant with 4GB of RAM along with more onboard storage.

In the photography department, the Redmi Note 4 features a 13-megapixel rear camera LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and PDAF support. For selfies, it comes with a 5-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture and 85-degree wide-angle lens. Although the predecessor, Redmi Note 3, features a 16-megapixel rear camera, the output from the Redmi Note 4 is reportedly said to be better in terms of image quality. The company s invite for Mi Explorers also hints at photography at the centre of the challenge as skills in photography and videography will be bonuses for selecting Mi fans.

Keeping the Redmi Note 4 ticking is a 4,100mAh battery which is said to last for the day on a single charge. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots (via hybrid tray), 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. On the software front, the Redmi Note 4 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 8 layered atop.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 prices

If the company follows the same pricing as China, the base variant with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage could be available in India for approximately Rs 9,000, while the 3GB variant with 64GB of internal storage could be priced at Rs 12,000. As it is expected that there will be a third variant with 4GB of RAM, the price of the same could be estimated to be around Rs 15,000. Additionally, as there is no official word on the color choices, we could expect the company to limit the color options to the standard options of silver, gold and grey, with the introduction the new color choices of black and blue later.
