Originally, the Xiaomi Redmi 4 measured 141.3×69.6×8.9mm, and offered about 69 percent screen-to-body ratio. The new batches of the Redmi 4 which are reportedly on sale via mi.com, have significantly thinner black border lines. A report on Gizmochina shows off the difference between models from the older production batch and the newer ones post January 11. Xiaomi hasn t completely done away with the bezels but has apparently only thinned them down. Additionally, it also appears that the smartphone is shorter in the newer batch. If Xiaomi has indeed thinner down on the borders along with tweaking the overall size of the Redmi 4, then it surely hints at a significant design change.
