After attaining the position of second most selling smartphone brand in India, Xiaomi is prepping up to launch its next Redmi series phone in the country.

The new Redmi phone announcement came from none other than the Xiaomi India vice president Manu Kumar Jain, who tweeted: “Announcing the launch of a new Redmi phone! This will be the 2nd BIG announcement of the month ☺️ Coming soon. Stay tuned #PowerInYourHand.”


Earlier in March, Xiaomi through its social media handle teased that ‘Successor to Redmi 3S is Coming’. Now, with the Redmi 4 waiting in the wings, it seems that Redmi 3S’s successful journey is coming to an end. At present, the Redmi 3s is priced at Rs 6,999 in India and Redmi 4 is likely to be launched for around the same price.


Xiaomi has already introduced Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Prime in China. The Redmi 4 boasts of an all metal design with 5-inch 1280 x 720-pixel display and 2.5D curved glass at the top. The phone employs an octa-core Snapdragon 430 chipset under the hood coupled with Adreno GPU and 2GB RAM. It comes with 16GB of internal storage and supports microSD card up to 128GB. The phone is secured by a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/2.2 aperture, LED Flash, PDAF at the back and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper on the front. It is backed by a 4,100mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based MIUI 8 OS.
