Xiaomi smartphones will be available for pre-order at 12 noon on 14 July. This is not the first time that the company is organising the sale. Instead, it is a weekly schedule where Xiaomi holds a sale for the stock of devices on pre-order. Another thing to note here is that this week, the Redmi Note 4 will go on sale on Flipkart in addition to Amazon and on the Mi Store.
The Redmi Note 4 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display on the front covered with curved, protective glass. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, which sounds like a step down from the Snapdragon 650, but is said to be more power efficient. There are three memory variants on offer, which include 2 GB RAM with 32 GB of storage, 3 GB RAM with 32 GB of storage and 4 GB RAM with 64 GB of storage. All the variants come with an option to expand the storage, supporting microSD cards of up to 128 GB.
There is a new 13 MP camera at the back with PDAF (phase detection autofocus) and a dual tone LED flash, while on the front there is a 5 MP camera. Connectivity options include support for dual-SIM (hybrid SIM card slot), 4G with VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, GLONASS, an infrared sensor and a microUSB port. Rounding it all off is a fingerprint scanner at the back and a 4,100 mAh battery to provide the juice.
Xiaomi Redmi 4 comes packed to the brim with features. You get a 5-inch IPS LCD HD display on the front along with a front-facing 5 MP selfie camera that sits at the top, alongside the receiver. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 (MSM 8940) octa-core chipset clocked at 1.4 GHz and paired with 3 GB RAM. There’s 32 GB of internal storage and this can be expanded up to 128 GB using the hybrid SIM tray.
Communications options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an infrared port at the top and a microUSB port at the bottom end. At the back sits a 13 MP camera with PDAF accompanied by a single LED flash. Also at the back is a fingerprint reader. Redmi 4 is powered by a 4,100 mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0 for faster charging.
