Xiaomi India announced yesterday that the company will announce something ‘jaw-dropping’, and turns out, that the Redmi Note 4G prices have been dropped. Even though speculations of the Mi Note launching in India were ripe, the theory of the Redmi Note 4G price slash was also on the cards. The smartphone will now be available for Rs 7,999 on the company website, Flipkart, Amazon India, Snapdeal, The Mobile Stores and Airtel stores from today.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G was launched in December last year, and just seven months later, the company has slashed the prices by Rs 2,000. It was the very first 4G device to be introduced in India, with support for both 4G bands: FDD-LTE (Band 3 – 1800 MHz) and TDD-LTE (Band 40 – 2300 MHz). This is not the first smartphone from Xiaomi to receive a price slash. Earlier this month, the 64GB Mi 4 also received a price cut, and is now sold for Rs 19,999, followed by its 16GB variant which is now available for Rs 14,999.
To recap on the Redmi Note 4G specs, it flaunts a 5.5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) IPS display, and is powered by a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor paired with Adreno 305 GPU and 2GB RAM.
The phablet also features a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and 8GB internal storage, microSD card support, and a 3,100mAh battery. Connectivity options include single-SIM card slot, LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and on the software front, it runs on MIUI 6.
