The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has gotten its first permanent price cut in the several months since its arrival in India. The inexpensive phone is now a bit more affordable thanks to a Rs 1000 drop.
The markdown applies to both the 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM Redmi Note 4 and the 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM variant. The former has gone from Rs 10999 to Rs 9999, while the latter falls from Rs 12999 to Rs 11999. Both Xiaomi’s site and Flipkart have applied the discount.
The Redmi Note 4 hit India back in January this year, making this an appropriate time for a cut. It’ll make the phone more competitive against rivals in the entry-level market sector like the Moto G5, Samsung Galaxy J5/J7, and Nokia 5, which recently got a new 3GB of RAM variant.
There’s also a chance Xiaomi is preparing for the launch of the Redmi Note 5. The handset has been stuck in the rumor mills for months, with no indication of when it’ll come out. Its predecessor was announced in China in August 2016, so it’s been more than a year since the series got updated.
