Xiaomi’s widely expected to launch the Redmi Note 4 in India on January 19, having sent out invites for an event set to take place on that day. Now a new set of teasers indicate that the phone will be exclusively sold via Flipkart.
Flipkart set the ball rolling by tweeting that India’s new all-rounder was visiting it on January 19. Cricketer Ravindra Jadeja responded to the post by stating that he was the country’s leading all-rounder. Redmi India then joined in the marketing ploy by asserting that its new all-rounder is coming out on the aforementioned date.
Flipkart then finally posted a short teaser which provided a sneak peek at what to expect from the device. The video revealed that the phone would be a complete package with stunning looks, incredible stamina, and lightning fast speeds. All signs point to the Redmi Note 4 being the handset in question.
