With huge expectations comes great products! That’s the most “original” line that you have ever read before.
We all know that Redmi Note 3 is the India’s most selling phone online, but that’s past. Now what … What’s next? Well, it’s almost time for Redmi Note 4 to rule the streets now. Launched in August 2016 in China, the company is all set to launch it in India in January, 2017.
This time, it is not going to serve as a replacement for older version, instead it will co-exist as a slightly premium, high-end phone. The phone sports a 5.5 inch touchscreen, LCD display with all metal uni-body design. It’s again a dual sim phone, supports 4G and hybrid memory card slot, expandable upto 128 GB, shared with the 2nd sim.
The primary(rear) camera is 13 megapixels, f/2.0 aperture with dual tone LED flash and the front camera is 5 megapixels with f/2.0 aperture. Many may see this as a reduction from 16 MP camera in Redmi Note 3 to 13 MP but the photos taken are more crisp and have a better contrast.
Also this time, the phone won’t be running on a snapdragon processor. It runs on a 2.1 GHz, MediaTek DecaCore Helio X20 processor. This essentially means that the phone will run faster, smoother and will be able to handle more tasks in parallel due those additional cores. As far as the battery is concerned, a full charge of 4100 mAh battery can easily last a day. It has a micro USB port for charging and does not support quick charge.
The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back. With the all new MIUI 8, the phone will run on Android Marshmallow. Also the phone is expected to come in two variants : 2 GB RAM with 16 GB of internal storage and 3 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage. The price is expected to be INR 10,999 for 2 GB, 16 GB memory model and INR 12,999 for the higher version.
