After creating all the necessary hype Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Note 4 today in India. This incremental update to Redmi Note 3 offers 20 percent more efficient battery performance thanks to the new Snapdragon 625 chipset, whose popularity is all of a sudden skyrocketing.
Display & Design
The new Note 4 looks elegant with a uni-metal design and 2.5D curved glass on top, but it’s still quite heavy tipping the scale at 165 grams. It comes with the same 5.5-inch full HD 401 PPI display as the Redmi Note 3. The phone also sport a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. You can buy it in black, gold and gray color options.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 houses Qualcomm’s 14nm LPP process based FinFET process based 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 chipset paired with Adreno 506 GPU. It comes with 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64 GB storage depending on the variant they choose. 4G VoLTE support is standard among all three of them. All variants of Redmi Note 4 come with hybrid SIM tray and can except up to 128GB storage.
On the optics front, the Xioami Redmi Note 4 comes with a 13-megapixel, f/2.0 77-degree wide angle camera with phase detection auto focus (PDAF) and dual-tone flash. For selfies lover, it bears a 5-megapixel, f/2.0 fixed focus camera.
We would have loved to see dual camera implementation on the new note iteration. But, well, I guess we will have to wait longer.
The Redmi Note 4 is packs a 4100mAh Li-Polymer battery however, doesn’t support fast charging and is non-removable. We expect the battery backup to be excellent on the new Note 4.
The come out of the box running on Xiaomi’s MIUI 8 which is based on Android Marshmallow operating system.
