Xiaomi has started sending out invites for an event on January 19 that promises the arrival of a new Mi product in India. While the name of the offering hasn’t been specified, it’s probably looking to launch the Redmi Note 4 in the country.
This falls in line with an earlier report which stated that Xiaomi was going to bring the Redmi Note 4 to India in January. The company is also expected to launch an octa-core Snapdragon 625-running variant in the nation rather than the deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 version the original Chinese model possesses.
There may also be 3 different iterations of the Redmi Note 4 sold in India. One would sport 2GB of RAM, the other 3GB, and the last 4GB. As for its cost, the 2GB/16GB edition was priced at CNY 899 (roughly Rs 8840) and the 4GB/64GB variant at CNY 1199 (about Rs 11800) when the two were launched in China back in August last year.
Xiaomi introduced two new blue and black color options for the smartphone in December. It had notably launched a Mi Explorers program in India that same month. Participants would get their hands on a new Redmi phone before others, with the device in question likely being the Redmi Note 4.
Here’s quick look at the specs of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4:
