Ahead of the Double
The Redmi 4 which has long been expected is said to launch officially on November 4 and Xiaomi would start selling the device on November 8. The Xiaomi Redmi 4 would team up with a Special Edition of the Redmi Note 4 to form Xiaomi’s latest offerings with jaw-dropping price tags for Double 11.
Recently, the specs and renders of the Redmi 4 were leaked and they gifted us the details of the device. The Redmi 4 is detailed to feature a 5-inch display and will be powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage.
The device is also listed as sporting a 13MP rear camera unit with Phase focus and LED flash, along side a 5MP front-facing one. On the software end, the Xiaomi Redmi 4 will run on Android Marshmallow-based MIUI 8. The device is also listed to feature a host of network bands including LTE.
Design wise, the Xiaomi Redmi 4 usports very narrow bezels at the sides, with the usual oval shaped home button missing, coming in as an entirely touchscreen affair. There are capacitive keys at the sides though, for volume control and to power the device on and off. At the rear, there is a fingerprint scanner just underneath the rear camera.
Recently, the Redmi 3S price was reduced by 50 Yuan and is now 649 Yuan, apparently to make way for the Redmi 4. In case you forgot, the device is said to come very cheap with a projected price tag of around 699 Yuan ($105) – 799 Yuan.
