The latest addition to the Xiaomi Redmi series is finally here and we’re very excited about it. The Chinese smartphone maker has launched the latest Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 in India. The device has been launched in three different variants with a base price of INR 9,999. for the base configuration of 2GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage. The other two models with 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage have been priced INR 10,999 and INR 12,999 respectively. The Redmi Note 4 will be made available in Gold, Grey, Silver, and a new Matte Black colour variant which will be made available very soon. The device will go on sale in India starting 12 pm on January 23 on Flipkart and Mi.com.
The Redmi Note 4 dons a full-metal unibody design and I’ve to admit that the device indeed looks gorgeous. The device sports a 5.5-inch FHD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass. There is a fingerprint sensor on the rear and this device has been made under Xiaomi’s Make in India program. The Redmi Note 4 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 MSM8953 octa-core SoC which is fairly good chipset in the mid-range segment. This SoC is based on the new 14nm FinFET architecture and is more battery efficient than it’s predecessors. The device runs MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and weighs 175g.
The Redmi Note 4 is a hybrid dual-SIM (Micro+Nano) device and packs an amazing 4100mAh battery. There’s a 13MP primary camera with CMOS sensor, a f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, 77-degree wide angle lens, and dual-tone LED flash. On the front, there is a 5MP sensor with 85-degree wide-angle lens for great selfies. Both the cameras perform decently under good lighting conditions but don’t expect wonders.
Now coming to the verdict, the device is great as far as raw processing is concerned. It’s even a bang in terms of looks and is definitely a head-turner. Although, at 175g, it’s a bit bulky, but I am willing to make this sacrifice in exchange of the enormous 4,100 mAh battery. Android Nougat would’ve been better but it shouldn’t be a deal-killer. The overall camera performance could definitely have been better but at this price, it’s acceptable. So definitely go for the Redmi Note 4 if you’re looking for a daily driver in the price range of 10-12k.
