At an event in New Delhi, the Redmi 4 was launched in the Indian market. It is exclusively available in online stores such as Amazon and Flipkart, starting at a price of ₹6,999.
Considering that the Redmi 3S was a huge success, we expect the same from the Redmi 4. Xiaomi sold over 4 million units of the 3S over the last six months. Here’s a look at the what the device has to offer:
The Xiaomi Redmi 4 rocks a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) display which is a step down from 1080p, however, considering the price, this is acceptable. The phone will come with an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset with Eight Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.4GHz. It sports a 13 MP primary camera, a 5 MP front camera, a fingerprint scanner at the back and a 4100 mAh (Li-Po) battery. On the down side, the device runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the bow, with Xiaomi’s custom skin. The phone will ship in three variants having 2/3/4 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB ROM.
The base model of the Redmi 4 featuring 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage is priced at ₹6,999. The variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage costs ₹8,999, and the version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage costs ₹10,999.
It is apparent that Xiaomi makes devices well suited to the Indian market and considering the success they’ve had, we can’t wait to see how the Redmi 4 sells.
