Xiaomi’s latest smartphone features a 10-core processor, a 4,100 mAh battery, and a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display. But it’s still part of the company’s Redmi line of budget devices.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will be available in China this week for ¥899 ($135) and up.
The entry-level price is for a model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. But if you want a bit more bang for a bit more buck, there’s also a 3GB/64GB model priced at ¥1,199 ($180)
Both versions feature fingerprint sensors on the back, 13MP rear cameras with phase-detection autofocus, a 5MP front camera, metal unibody designs, and hybrid SIM card trays that allow you to either use dual SIM cards or one SIM card and a microSD card.
The phone supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and 4G LTE (on supported networks).
The Redmi Note 4 is powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 processor with two ARM Cortex-A72 CPU cores and eight Cortex-A53 CPU cores (divided into two clusters, with four of those cores having a higher clock speed than the other four in order to balance performance and energy efficiency). The chip also features 700 MHz Mali-T880 MP4 graphics.
One hot new feature the phone doesn’t have? A USB Type-C port. The Redmi Note 4 seems to have a micro USB port instead. I also don’t see any mention of NFC in the announcement, although the phone is said to support Mi Pay and Alipay mobile payment services, which suggests that the phone might have an NFC chip.
