Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Confirmed to Launch in India on January 19: Everything You Need to Know

By January 10th, 2017 AT 10:58 PM

The long rumored Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is all scheduled to launch in India on January 19 officially, as the Chinese company started sending media invites for an event to be hosted in New Delhi.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will be the successor to the company’s most successful budget smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. To recall, the Redmi Note 4 was launched in China last year, but the company is planning a yearly cycle for their budget smartphones to launch in India.

The Chinese variant of the Redmi Note 4 features a 5.5-inch Full HD display. At the heart of phone, there is a MediaTek Helio X20 chipset, coupled with 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM. The phone was made available in three different storage variants- 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.

A 13MP rear camera is present at the rear side of the phone with f/2.0 aperture; dual tone LED flash and PDAF technology. A 5MP front-facing camera with an 85-degree wide angles lens is also present. A large 4100mAh battery is added to power the package.

However, when it comes to India’s take on Xiaomi, the company is not eligible to sell MediaTek chipset powered smartphones in the country due to some patent issues with Ericsson. And, we saw this happen with the company’s previous devices as well. The Redmi Note 3 was released with Helio X10 chipset, but in India, it was made public with Snapdragon 650 chipset.

The same scenario appears to happen with the Redmi Note 4 as well. It was rumored that Xiaomi is planning to launch the Note 4 with octa-core 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. This was a rumored specification, but nothing is official yet.

Apart from the processor, all the other specifications will remain same. Also, it was reported that Xiaomi is planning to launch three variants of the phone in India as well. There are no details regarding pricing as well. But, we are expecting the phone to go official with a starting price tag of Rs. 10,999 for the 2GB RAM variant, Rs. 12,999 for the 3GB RAM variant, and Rs. 14,999 for the 4GB RAM variant.

Having said that, the launch date is just about a week ago from now. We are expecting more details regarding the phone will leak in coming days. Stay tuned to Telecomtalk for more information regarding the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.
