The Redmi Note 4 has done well for Xiaomi in India and in China, and it may be looking to cash in on its success by launching a new variant of the phone in question, aka the Redmi Note 4X. Surprisingly, Xiaomi had launched the higher end versions of the device first and the version now being launched is the lower end version. The company flat out confirms that the Redmi Note 4X will launch on February 14 by saying "February 14 to bring a special Valentine's Day gift: red rice Note4X". Back then, the listing on the certification website confirmed that the phone will ship with upgraded specs compared to its predecessor. Xiaomi had already introduced the Snapdragon-powered variant of the Redmi Note 4 in India, which is supposed to be an global variant of the Redmi Note 4, so what is Redmi Note 4X's goal? It comes in three different variants, the 2GB RAM, 3GB RAM and the high-end 4GB RAM with 32GB and 64GB as storage options.
Expandable storage is also supported. The prices for the new device are expected to start at CNY 899, which is roughly Rs 9,000.
While on the connectivity front, it is expected that the phone will feature fingerprint and Infrared sensors, along with 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS + GLONASS. The phone is powered by a 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor.
As noted earlier, the teaser from Xiaomi did not reveal any specs and features of the upcoming Redmi Note 4X. There is also a 5-megapixel front-facing camera on-board the device.
The Redmi Note 4X will have a 13MP camera with a 5MP front shooter.
The handset is said to offer a display of 5.5 inches OLED and it will run on the Snapdragon 66X processor and offer a battery of 4500mAh.
Instead, it seems Xiaomi is updating the older offering in terms of processing power and memory. Rumour has it that the company may launch it in sometime in February as well.
