Xiaomi set to launch another ‘Redmi’ smartphone in India

Xiaomi appears set to launch a new smartphone in India. The Chinese technology company has teased about an upcoming launch on its official social handles. Though the posts do not reveal the name of the device, they do say that the company will be introducing another ‘Redmi’ smartphone in the country.

“Announcing the launch of a new Redmi smartphone! Want to know more? Stay tuned. #PowerInYourHand,” goes the tweet from Xiaomi India. The company has also not announced the smartphone’s launch date. Rumours hint towards the arrival of the Redmi 4 smartphone, which was launched in China back in November 2016.

The Redmi 4 sports a 5-inch 2.5D curved glass display. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, with Xiaomi’s own MIUI skin layer running on top.
The company launched Xiaomi Redmi 4 in two variants, one powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM of 16GB of internal storage. The higher-end variant comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
While the former has an HD display of 720×1280 pixel resolution and sports a price tag of 699 Yuan (about Rs 6,900), the latter sports a Full-HD display of 1080×1920 pixel resolution and is priced at 899 Yuan (around Rs 8,800) in China.

Other specifications are largely the same for both the variants. Xiaomi Redmi 4 comes with a 13MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus and dual-LED flash, along with a 5MP front-facing snapper. There’s also fingerprint sensor and IR blaster on the device.

The dual-SIM smartphone features 4G, VoLTE , Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS as major connectivity options. It is backed by a large 4,100mAh battery.

Xiaomi seems to be shifting gears when it comes to offline access to Xiaomi devices in India. The company will soon be launching its first Mi Home Store in the country. It has already sent out invites for the launch. Xiaomi’s Mi Home Store will offer wide range of company’s products like power banks, Bluetooth speakers, headphones, air purifiers, fitness bands and more.
