The Chinese electronics manufacturer Xiaomi has been busy in developing more innovation and pocket-friendly phones from last many years. The smartphone with good innards and amazing marketing strategies have made it possible for the company to sell millions of phones every month. A new phone that has been named as Redmi 4 is floating around in the rumors market for some time now. A lot of rumors suggest common information which gives a definite idea of the expected innards to some extent. The phone has appeared on the certification site TENAA which shows the key specifications and price details of the phone.
Rumored features of Redmi 4
If the leaks from the certification site are to be believed, the new handset will come with full metal body and a 5-inch display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The phone packs a Snapdragon 625 chipset with the octa-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. It will come with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage that is further expandable up to 128 GB via microSD card. Though, this is in contrast of the previous rumor that the phone will come with an Helio P10 processor.
The new leak also shed some light on the optics of the phone. It claims that the phone will have a 13-megapixel rear camera along with a 5-megapixel front camera. The general features, sensor details, aperture value and maximum resolution for the video are still unclear. It may come with 4000 mAh, or 4100 mAh battery which is comparatively better than most of the phone is similar price range as per rumors. The dimensions of the phone may come close to 141.3×69.6×8.9mm, and weigh approx 153 grams. The Redmi 4 will be available in Grey, Silver and Gold color options.
The second variant Redmi 4A
According to the leaks, the company will also launch a variant of the phone. Dubbed as Redmi 4A, the phone will come with 5-inch display and 1280 x 710 pixels resolution. It may have a Snapdragon 425 chipset along with quad-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. This variant will have 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory. The optics will remain same as the Redmi 4. However, the measurement of the phone is slightly different at 139.9 x 70.4 x 8.5 mm and it may weigh 140 grams.
Another website by the name PlayfulDroid has leaked some images which are quite similar to the listing on TENAA website. The expected price of Redmi 4 is approx CNY 1300 which is much higher in comparison to Redmi 3. There are few other reports though that suggests the price for Redmi 4 will be CNY 999. The Redmi 4A will be priced at CNY 599.
These are just rumors that have been floating around for quite some time. The company is not saying even a single word about the expected release. Xiaomi launched Mi Note 2 just a couple of weeks back. By announcing another handset, Xiaomi might not want to jeopardize the sales of Note 2. Still, as the phone is in the process of passing the certification, it will launch sooner or later, hopefully in 2016 itself.
