Updated Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 launches in India with Snapdragon 625 processor

Xiaomi has announced an updated version of its Redmi Note 4 smartphone, previously only officially available in China, with some slight design tweaks, a new color and a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.

The Redmi Note 4 sports a premium metal body and 2.5D curved glass on the front. The phone will be available in  Dark Grey and Gold colors, and a new steathy matte black finish. Compared to the previous Redmi Note 4, the new Note 4 is slightly thinner and adds some stylish anodized high-gloss aluminium lines to the rear of the phone.

On the back of the phone there's a fingerprint scanner and a 13-megapixel, f/2.0 rear camera with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF), and a Backside Illuminated (BSI) sensor with 1.12-micron pixels, which captures more light than its predecessor. On the front, you get a 5-megapixel, f/2.0 front facing camera.

Replacing the Mediatek Helio X20 used by the original Redmi Note 4, the new model is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and 2, 3 or 4GB RAM. Three models will be available, a 32GB storage with either 2 or 3GB RAM, and a 64GB storage option with 4GB RAM. All three models also have a MicroSD card slot that is compatible with cards up to 128GB. Like the original Redmi Note 4, the new version also has a massive 4,100mAh battery.

At the Redmi Note 4 launch event in India, Xiaomi VP, Hugo Barra, said “We are really thankful to everyone who made Redmi Note 3 one of the most popular devices in 2016. The immense appreciation we received and the feedback from our Mi fans motivated us to take it to the next level with Redmi Note 4. 2016 was a huge success for Xiaomi as we crossed US$1 billion worth of revenue in the year, and 2017 will be more significant as we strive towards achieving new milestones and introducing many more exciting new products in India.”

For now, the new Redmi Note 4 is officially only available in India on, and will launch on 23rd January, starting at INR 9,999 (~S$210) for the 2GB RAM/32GB storage model, INR 10,999 (~S$230) for the 3GB RAM/32GB storage model, and INR 12,999 (~S$272) for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage model. However, much like the original Redmi Note 4, we expect export models will soon be available on local e-commerce websites.
