Just like its ancestor Redmi 3S and 3S Prime, the Redmi 4 is a kickass budget friendly phone which doesn’t compromise in terms of performance and hardware. It comes with an all-metal body and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The phone looks quite similar to the Redmi Note 4. However, Xiaomi has done a good jib by cutting down the bezels up to a greater extent. It comes with 2.5D curved glass on the front.
The Redmi 4 comes with a 5-inch 720p display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor octa-core processor, coupled with 2gb?3GB/4GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal memory. The Redmi 4 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Redmi 4 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with MIUI 8 on top. It is backed by a 4,100mAh battery. Connectivity options on the Redmi 4 include 4G LTE and VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS etc.
Commenting on the launch event Xiaomi Vice President and India Managing Director, Manu Jain said, “Redmi 3S was one of the most popular smartphones last year. We sold more than 4 million units of Redmi 3S during the life cycle of the product. Today we are thrilled to announce Redmi 4, which is an upgrade to Redmi 3S. Each of our Redmi devices have redefined the affordable smartphone segment in India, and we believe Redmi 4 too will meet the expectations of Mi Fans users who want high quality devices at an affordable price.” He also added, “We are committed to launching several of our ecosystem products in India, and bringing technological innovations to everyone. With the fast growing internet population in the country, we saw a big gap in the current router market. With amazing smart features, and a game-changing price, Mi Router 3C is set to disrupt the router market in India.”
Along with the Redmi 4, Xiaomi has also launched the Mi Router 3C in India, priced at Rs. 1199.
