Xiaomi’s affordable Redmi 4 series made its debut all the way back in November last year and recently added another member in the form of the Redmi 4X. The lineup could now be making its way to India soon if a new invite issued by the brand for a March 20 event is anything to go by.
The invite in question has the headline ‘Time to get smarter,’ with the characters 4 and A getting singled out in red. This is a pretty clear indication that the Redmi 4, Redmi 4A, Redmi 4 Prime, and Redmi 4X are coming to the nation. What’s not as clear is if all 4 are going to be launched at the same time.
The Redmi 4 series improves upon the ones that came before it with all-metal bodies and updated specs. The most inexpensive member is the Redmi 4A at CNY 599 (approx Rs 5700). The smartphone doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor, making it easy to tell apart from the others.
Specs include a 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie snapper, 3120mAh battery, Snapdragon 425 processor, and 5-inch 720p display. The Redmi 4 has a slightly costlier CNY 699 (roughly Rs 6600) price tag. The extra difference is made up by a faster Snapdragon 430 SoC and 4100mAh battery.
The Redmi 4 Prime goes even higher at CNY 899 (around Rs 8500). Buyers will be paying the additional amount to get their hands on a Snapdragon 625 CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, and a 5-inch 1080p screen.
The more recent Redmi 4X goes for CNY 699 (about Rs 6600) for the 2GB/16GB option and CNY 899 (about Rs 8500) for the 3GB/32GB variant. It too sports almost the same specs as the others except for its Snapdragon 435 chipset.
