One way or another, Xiaomi has managed to stay in headlines this year. Once again it is in the news for rumored, upcoming launch of its next midrange Redmi Note series smartphone. The China’s Apple (as called by some) is hosting an event on July 27 at Beijing, and if speculations are true, it will be launching Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 at the event. Mi fans are invited to buy tickets for the event scheduled for July 27.
Recent leaks suggest that the Redmi Note 4 will incorporate a dual camera setup at the back, something similar to what we have recently witnessed in Huawei P9 and Honor 8. According to the leaked image, Redmi Note 4 won’t have a rear fingerprint sensor like Redmi Note 3. Possibly, Xiaomi decided to take a leaf out of Mi 5 design book and embedded the fingerprint reader in the home button.
It will have a sleek metal unibody design with antenna bands running on top and bottom of the smartphone, as hinted by fresh leaks.
In terms of specification, the Redmi Note 4 is said to feature a 5.5-inch phablet-size display. As per rumors, it will be powered by MediaTek Helio X20/Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 chipset (same chipset as in LeEco Le2 and Vivo V3 Max). It is likely to come with 3 Gigs of RAM and capacious battery on the lines of Redmi Note 3.
There is also a possibility that instead Redmi Note 4, Xiaomi launches some other device on July 27 as Redmi Note 3 isn’t past its life-cycle. In the past, Xiaomi maintained a 12-month refresh cycle and if it launches Redmi Note 4 at the end of this month that shall be another first for Xiaomi.
