Successor to the Redmi Note 3, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 was launched in China in August this year. Design wise, the Redmi Note 4 looks very similar to the Redmi Note 3 but with subtle tweaks like 2.5D curved glass on top. Xiaomi is still holding on to its unibody metal design but has added the Mi 5-like chamfered edges to the Redmi Note 4. The overall design looks pretty much the same with the camera lens, LED flash and the circular fingerprint scanner placed at the back panel.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 price

The smartphone is available in two variants 16GB variant with 2GB of RAM, and 64GB variant with 3GB of RAM. The base variant is priced at 899 Yuan, which is Rs 9,000 approximately while the 64GB variant is priced at 1,199 Yuan, which is Rs 12,000 approximately.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 specifications

As far as the specifications are concerned, the Redmi Note 4 flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) display with 2.5D curved glass. The Redmi Note 4 is powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core SoC, but the company is likely to launch a Qualcomm variant, considering the ongoing legal tussle with Ericsson that bars the company from launching MediaTek phones in India. According to maktech blog, Xiaomi will launch the Snapdragon 625 SoC version in India. The smartphone is expected to be available in 2GB, 3GB, 4GB RAM options.

On the camera front, the smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and PDAF support. Up front, there is a 5-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and 85-degree wide-angle lens. While the Redmi Note 3 has a 16-megapixel primary camera, some of the camera samples shared by Xiaomi hint at a better picture quality than the Redmi Note 3. The smartphone is armed with a 4,100mAh battery that Xiaomi says is good enough to last for the day on a single charge. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots (hybrid setup), 4G with VoLTE support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. On the software front, the Redmi Note 4 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow wrapped under MIUI 8.

To put the specification into perspective, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 was launched in two variants earlier this year 16GB variant with 2GB RAM for Rs 9,999 and a 32GB variant with 3GB RAM for Rs 11,999. The phablet features a 5.5-inch full HD display, 1.8GHz Snapdragon 650 hexa-core processor, 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and dual-LED flash, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture up front.

That said, Xiaomi s Redmi Note 3 was one of the trend setters in 2016 for the budget smartphones category. The company sold more than 1.75 million units of the device in India in just five months. According to an IDC report, Xiaomi shipped 880,000 units of the Redmi Note 3 in India in Q2, 2016, making it the highest-shipped smartphone ever online in India in any given quarter .
