Today the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X was officially released. This phone doesn’t differ much from its predecessor. Probably the main change refers to the color options this handset is available at. There are five colors including champagne gold, silver, cherry, matt black, and customized Hatsune Miku version. All these colors showcase the phone focuses on younger customers. But there are other features hinting we are dealing with a mid-range smartphone coming at an affordable price tag.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X regular models cost 999 yuan ($145). Thus it is going to compete with other thousand-yuan devices such as Huawei Enjoy 6S or Meizu M5 Note. But Xiaomi has been always known for its talent to combine great features and low price tags. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X is no exception. The only doubts refer to the Hatsune Miku version. I mean the color it comes in is unusual. So many customers have been thinking this variant won’t succeed. Moreover, it is priced a bit higher due to a special power bank a few design changes. But looking at the first hands-on photos of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X we understand all those fears were in vain.
Black and gray color options have been always though as the most regular colors for smartphones. They are at everyone’s taste. Later the gold color options was added to this list. Then some companies added pink color as well. But I can’t remember any manufacturer tried to bring aquamarine colored smartphone to the market. May be only Nokia’s Lumia line could offer something like that. But Lumia handsets came with plastic housing providing matted coloring. As for the Xioami Redmi Note 4X sports a metal housing and we have to write down this color option looks quite attractive on this material. No idea whether other phones of Xiaomi will come in this or identical color option, but this one is going to make a huge stir around it, undoubtedly.
