Xiaomi has quietly produced two variants of the Redmi 4 in China: Report

Xiaomi has held its own in the budget segment almost since the first device debuted in India. Part of that strength comes from its budget Redmi lineup. The Redmi 3 series currently makes up the lower end of the spectrum while its successor, the Redmi 4, was only recently announced.

The Redmi 4 has been on sale in China since November last year. A report on GizmoChina, however, notes that Xiaomi has already tweaked the design of the Redmi 4 since its launch.

The new device reportedly features smaller bezels and thinner borders around the display. The phone is also a little bit shorter than the original model. The change in design hasn't yet been announced by Xiaomi and the company is yet to comment on the matter.

GizmoChina claims to have received images of the new device from one of its users, who claims that the new model has been on sale since 11 January.

The Redmi 4 in China features a 5-inch HD display, a Snapdragon 430 SoC, an option of 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM, either 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage and a 13 MP rear camera with PDAF. The battery is a 4,100-mAh unit. The price of the new model remains the same.
