The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will be available for purchase via the official mi.com website, but you can also get the same phone via giant retailer known as Flipkart.
As usual with Xiaomi phones, the Redmi Note 4 comes in at a very affordable price tag of Rs 9,999, but this is the price of the entry-level variant of the phone. As noted, the sales are opening as from today January 23, but we could be facing a potential flash sale for the handset.
As noted, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 model that costs Rs 9,999, which is about $145, is the entry-level version. In addition to this model, you also get two other variants of the same phone that are differentiated by the amount of RAM and storage capacity, but the rest of the specs remain unchanged.
As usual with Xiaomi’s choice of the design language, the Redmi Note 4 looks more of a premium phone than an entry-level handset. There is a nice 2.5D curved glass and slimmer edges on the phone’s aluminum frame, giving it a classy touch and feel. The display area is plenty thanks to a 5.5-inch Full HD panel, however, the processor under the hood might be a little underwhelming for some. But when looking at the price of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, it would be absurd to expect anything more than what is on offer.
There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core clocked at a speed of 2.0GHz and is paired with either 2GB, 3GB or 4GB of RAM. In terms of storage, there are only two options to choose from – 32GB and 64GB – but all have room for microSD card storage. The rear shooter has a 13MP lens that ships with PDAF and a dual-tone LED flash. Just below the rear snapper is a fingerprint scanner that adds an extra security layer to the phone besides the use of passwords, passcodes, and patterns. On the front, you get a 5MP snapper that should get the job done when talking about selfies and video calls.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 comes with all the latest connectivity standards, including Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G VoLTE, but there is still no room for a USB-C port. In short, you will still use a microUSB cable to charge the 4100mAh battery on board. Android Marshmallow runs the show out of the box, but an update to Android Nougat should appear in future.
Just in case you are still lost with the pricing aspect, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 model that ships with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage will be priced at Rs 9,999 ($145). If this is not good for you, the variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage is valued at Rs 10,999 or about $160. For the high-end variant of 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, you’ll need Rs 12,999 or $190.
