Xiaomi is updating its 5.5 inch Redmi Note smartphone with a new model that supports 4G LTE connectivity.
The phone’s other specs include 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD card reader, a 1280 x 720 pixel display, a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera. It has a 3200mAh battery.
The Redmi Note 4G runs Android 4.4 KitKat with the MIUI user interface and it will go on sale in China later this month.
Despite the “Note” in the name, this phone doesn’t come with a stylus. But it does have a large display which makes it about the same size as a Samsung Galaxy Note.
Xiaomi is based in China, but the company has started branching out into new markets including Singapore and India. We could start to see Xiaomi phones in the United States and Europe in 2015. By then the Redmi Note 4G will probably be old news, but it’s still interesting to see the kind of high-quality, low-price devices Xiaomi is cranking out.
The company’s recently launched Mi4 smartphone sells for about $320 and features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 3080mAh battery and a 5 inch full HD display.
