Xiaomi’s finally gone ahead and launched the Redmi Note 4 in India after weeks of teasers and leaks. The smartphone is set to be sold via Flipkart and the brand’s official site starting from January 23 at 12pm with no pre-registrations or flash sales involved.

The Redmi Note 4 has arrived in 3 different variants in India. The basic option contains 2GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM, the next 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM, and the third 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. The models are priced at Rs 9999, Rs 10999, and Rs 12999, respectively.

As expected, Xiaomi has replaced the original Chinese variant’s deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor with an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC. The company is touting the latter’s 14nm FinFET technology, claiming Qualcomm’s CPU makes the phone 20% more power efficient than the Redmi Note 3.

In terms of design, the Redmi Note 4 looks similar to its predecessor in most respects. The manufacturer says it’s managed to make the new device slimmer and given it tapered edges for a more comfortable grip. The size of the display still measures 5.5-inch, but it’s now been layered with 2.5D curved glass for a more stylish look.
