Follow up to Xiaomi’s much successful Redmi Note 3; the Redmi Not 4 exists primarily to correct the camera shortcomings of its predecessor, according to the company. The phone comes with a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, Phase Detection Autofocus and dual-LED (dual-tone) flash. On the front, the Redmi Note 4 comes with a 5-megapixel camera.  Just like the Redmi Note 3, the Redmi Note 4 boasts of a full-metal body and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Unlike the Redmi Note 3, however, the Redmi Note 4 has curved 2.5D glass on the front (with physical capacitive keys) and a bottom-facing mono speaker.

The phone comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD display. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clubbed with Adreno 506GPU. All the versions of the Redmi Note 4 support expandable storage of up to 128GB via a hybrid microSD card slot. The dualSIM phone runs Android Marshmallow-based MIUI 8 and supports 4G LTE (VoLTE-ready). The Redmi Note 4 is further backed by a 4,100mAh battery.

To recall, Xiaomi launched the MediaTek Helio X20-based Redmi Note 4 in China, in August 2016. Since Xiaomi isn’t permitted to sell its MediaTek-based devices in India due to an ongoing legal tussle with Ericsson that phone never made it to the country. Xiaomi, in a bid to restore some balance, insists that it has launched the Qualcomm-based Redmi Note 4 in India first. Also, it is offering more options, unlike the Redmi Note 4 in China that has just two: 2GB RAM and 16GB memory, and another with 3GB RAM and 64GB memory.

The Redmi Note 4 will be available in three colours: Gold, Dark Gray and Matte Black. A majority of Redmi Note 4 units will be made in India and the company will eventually discontinue the Redmi Note 3 in the days to come. Moreover, Xiaomi will also be looking to bring the Redmi Note 4 to offline channels in the near future, a company spokesperson has confirmed to India Today Tech.
