After many leaks, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 4 smartphone in August last year. Now, the company has announced that a variant of the smartphone, named Redmi Note 4X, is on its way as well. Xiaomi took to Weibo to announce the Redmi Note 4X launch in China. The unveiling of the Xiaomi smartphone will take place on Wednesday, February 8 – which is when the Redmi 4X’s pricing and availability will be revealed – and the smartphone will go on sale on Valentine’s Day i.e., February 14.
The Redmi Note 4X teaser was shared by Xiaomi on its official Weibo page, and confirmed the name of the smartphone. While the image does not share any other details, the upcoming Xiaomi handset is presumably going to be more expensive than the Redmi Note 4 smartphone.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X has been leaked on several occasions in the past as well, and its certification listing revealed key specifications details. The next Xiaomi smartphone is expected to feature a 5.5-inch full-HD display, be powered by a 2GHz deca-core CPU, thought to be the MediaTek Helio X20 SoC, though other countries including in India may see launch of a Snapdragon 653 SoC variant. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X leaks suggest that it will pack 4GB of RAM, though 2GB and 3GB RAM variants will also be offered. Inbuilt storage variants include 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, with microSD storage expansion (up to 32GB).
Dimensions of Redmi Note 4X are expected to be at 151×76.3×8.54mm, making it slightly wider and thicker than the Redmi Note 4 (151x76x8.3mm). It weighs in at 176.54 grams, slightly more than the Redmi Note 4’s 175-gram weight, and tipped to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Xiaomi handset may sport a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 4000mAh battery, and a fingerprint sensor at the back.
