Xiaomi has been teasing the launch of its forthcoming smartphone, which was speculated to be the Redmi Note 2 Prime. However, chat between Xiaomi India and Amazon on Twitter with hashtag #PrimeIsComing revealed that is not Redmi Note 2 Prime. Now, the latest tweets from Xiaomi India hints it could launch the successor to the Redmi Note 4G.
The first tweet reads “#PrimeIsComing with twice the memory than its predecessor!“ The photo shows the earpiece and capacitive buttons of the smartphone and has a caption, “16GB flash memory with 32GB microSD slot.”
The next tweet reads “If you’re looking for stunning display, look no further! #PrimeIsComing.” The photo shows the smartphone’s display and a book with “99 99,” which could be a hint that the smartphone would be priced at Rs 9,999.
Putting all the hints together, the Redmi Note 4G Prime would come with a 5.5-inch 720p display, dual-SIM card slots with 4G support, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot.
This could mean that the smartphone would be an upgraded version of the Redmi Note 4G and not the Redmi Note 2 Prime that many expected. The Prime name could mean nothing more than the fact that it would be made in India.
There has already been a lot of outrage on social media where fans aren’t pleased with the idea of Xiaomi selling a two-year-old smartphone. But, with the refreshed internals and latest software on board, that could just be what users would expect.
We’ll learn more on what exactly Xiaomi has in store for its Indian customers when it officially launches the smartphone on December 15. It will be exclusively available via Amazon India.
