Xiaomi outs Redmi Note 4 with ten-core SoC, 4100mAh battery

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Redmi Note 4, the latest member of the brand’s series of budget phones at compellingly low prices. The handset is only being sold in China for now, with no word on whether it’ll make the trip to distant lands.

The main talking point when it comes to the Redmi Note 4 is its deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor. The inclusion of the CPU marks Xiaomi’s second venture into the world of ten-core processors after the launch of the Redmi Pro.

The new Xiaomi device is much more affordable than the latter though, with its 16GB/2GB variant going for CNY 899 (approx $135 or Rs 9000) and its 64GB/3GB one for CNY 1199 (roughly $180 or Rs 12000). Top highlights include its all-metal build and 5.5-inch 1080p 2.5D glass screen which offers a pixel density of 401ppi.
