The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X was finally unveiled to the Chinese people mid last week, but the company has recently teased a new special Hatsune Miku special edition variant of the same phone.
Even though the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X has been launched, it is yet to go on sale, with the official availability set to begin on February 14. According to a new report, the Chinese tech giant has just confirmed the prices of these two variants of the Redmi Note 4X, with the standard model coming in at a cheaper price as compared to the special Hatsune Miku edition.
If you have no time for the special edition model, the standard edition Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X will set you back 999 RMB, which is about $145, but if you are after the Hatsune Miku edition, you’ll have to part with 1,299 RMB, which translates to about $189.
The two phones, other than the fact that one is based on Japan’s famous virtual pop girl idol Hatsune Miku and the other one is not, share most of the specs and features. The standard variant gets a 3GB of RAM alongside 32GB of expandable storage while the special edition adds a bundled powerbank, customized casing as well as a bunch of downloadable Hatsune theme packs.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X is in itself a variant of the original Redmi Note 4 that was unveiled in China a while back. The only difference between the two is that the latter uses a MediaTek Helio X20 SoC while the former has a Snapdragon 625. The Snapdragon 625 variant was also launched recently in India and it comes in three memory options of 2GB/32GB, 3GB/32GB, and 4GB/64GB.
The screen size for the three Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 variants remains at 5.5 inches with Full HD resolution while the battery to keep them alive is a monstrous 4100mAh. You also get a fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM support as well as 4G LTE connectivity. As for the release dates, the standard Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X will go on sale as from tomorrow (Valentine’s Day) while the Hatsune Miku special edition will reportedly start selling somewhere in mid-March.
