Xiaomi’s been actively promoting its upcoming January 19 event via its social media channels, teasing out a new product getting unveiled that day. So far, it hasn’t confirmed that the device in question is the Redmi Note 4.
This state of affairs ends now since Xiaomi’s India head Manu Kumar Jain has taken to Twitter to confirm that the company is going to launch the Redmi Note 4 on January 19. Flipkart recently began teasing the phone via its own Twitter handle, indicating that the smartphone will be sold exclusively via the e-commerce site upon its arrival.
Xiaomi hasn’t released the cost or specifications details for the phone yet. Earlier rumors had indicated that the company was planning to swap out the Chinese model’s deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor for an octa-core Snapdragon 625 CPU.
The affordable Redmi Note 4 is also reportedly going to be sold in 2GB of RAM, 3GB of RAM, and 4GB of RAM variants. It had been launched in China back in August 2016 priced at CNY 899 (about Rs 8890) for the 2GB/16GB iteration and CNY 1199 (approx Rs 11860) for the 4GB/64GB edition.
