Xiaomi may be getting ready to launch the Redmi 4 series of phones in India, going by an invite it has officially sent out. The Chinese manufacturer is hosting an event on March 20 in New Delhi but hasn’t confirmed what it’s planning to unveil at the occasion.
The invite offers a few clues which point towards a Redmi 4 reveal. It features the words ‘Time to get smarter’ with the letter A stylized to also look like a 4. This could be referring to the Redmi 4, Redmi 4 Prime, Redmi 4X, or Redmi 4A. It’s possible all 4 will be showcased at the event.
Little else can be gleaned from the invite. The Redmi 4X is the latest of the bunch, having made its debut in China last month. It’s currently selling at CNY 699 (roughly Rs 6600) for its 2GB/16GB variant and Rs CNY 899 (about Rs 8500) for its 3GB/32GB model. Specs include a 5-inch 720p screen, 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie shooter, 4100mAh battery, and Snapdragon 435 processor.
The Redmi 4A, Redmi 4, and Redmi 4 Prime all came out in China back in November last year. The trio has been carved out of metal and boast of similar features. The first is the cheapest of the group courtesy its CNY 499 (approx Rs 4700) price tag. It can be easily distinguished from the others thanks to its lack of a fingerprint scanner.
Specs-wise, it ships with a 5-inch HD display, Snapdragon 425 CPU, a 13MP primary snapper, a 5MP front-facing lens, 16GB of ROM, 2GB of RAM, and a 3120mAh battery. As for the Redmi 4, it goes for CNY 699 (around Rs 6600) and features almost the same specifications except for its Snapdragon 430 SoC and 4100mAh battery.
Finally, the Redmi 4 Prime is available at CNY 899 (about Rs 8500) and improves upon the Redmi 4’s specs with a 5-inch FHD screen, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, and a Snapdragon 625 chipset. We’ll fill you in on Xiaomi’s plans the moment the event goes live on March 20.
