Xiaomi, China’s leading smartphone provider, has finally launched the much anticipated Redmi Note 4 (first in India & China). This is the eagerly awaited follow up to the Redmi Note 3 which proved to be hugely popular.
The Redmi Note 4 is running on Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 8, which is a fairly heavily modified version of Android 6 (made to look a bit more like iOS as is the trend in China) and under the hood is pack some rather impressive specification for the price.
It’s a full 4G LTE phone with dual SIM capability – this means that you can do things such as keep one SIM for work use and one SIM for personal use, or for those that travel frequently keep SIM cards for different countries in all the time.
All models feature a 5.5 inch full HD display, an 8 core 2GHz processor and a 13MP rear facing camera. There are a few options for you to consider:
- The colour: You can pick the device up in Black, Gold & Dark Grey
- Memory (RAM): You can have either 2GB, 3GB or 4GB memory
- Flash memory: You can have either 32GB or 64GB storage
The great thing, as is the case with most Chinese phone, is the price when compared to phones marketed in the West. You can pick up the 64Gb version from GearBest for under £200 (sub $250) SIM free. Xiaomi does not sell directly into the European or USA markets so you’ll need to use an importer such as GearBest – you can read about our experience importing a Chinese phone here.
Needless to say, if you need a powerful phone with dual SIM capability the Redmi Note 4 should certainly be checked out.
