Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X Appearance: Quick Look
The leaked photos showcase this phone looks identical to its predecessor. Both models come with a matte metal housing. The back edges are rounded for better ergonomics. However, the fingerprint is located on the front instead of back. Front-mounted fingerprint scanners have become a mainstream, because it’s too inconvenient to use it for big-screen phones. Thus Xiaomi decided to follow the trend. At last, this model features a capacitive home button. This is the greatest change in terms of design, because its predecessor comes with three touch buttons placed under the screen.
All these changes (especially it refers to the fingerprint scanner and home button) we have all reasons to think it’s the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X Features: Quick Look
Seems not that much is changed in terms of specs list. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X is said to come with a 5.5-inch Full HD display like its sibling. But here is a big surprise – the Redmi Note 4X should be the first phone to use Pegasus panel.
This model is rumored to come with a Snapdragon 635 octa-core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz (28nm / 4×A53 at 1.95GHz + 4×A72 at 1.44GHz). It’s a great upgrade in comparison to the current version’s MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor clocked at 2.1GHz. It’s paired with an Adreno 510, 4GB and 32GB / 64GB of internal memory. This means the company has improved the RAM as well.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X will sport a 4000mAh battery with fast charge support, and the actual maximum power should be 15W.
Finally, it sports a 16MP rear camera and supports FDD B5/8. Thus it’s a 4G supporting device.
