Xiaomi Redmi 4 has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now things are getting serious. The handset has been previously spotted on Weibo and Geekbench, but now it emerged on TENAA, so its launch on the Chinese market is imminent.
TENAA has the silver version pictured, but previous rumors also mentioned gold as a color option. By the looks of it, the Redmi 4 will launch as a more affordable and slightly smaller Redmi Note 4, with less premium design touches. Its specs are expected to include a MediaTek Helio P10 or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, a 5-inch full HD display, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, 8 MP front camera, 13 MP main image snapper, all powered by a generous 4,000 mAh battery. References to a fingerprint reader and an IR blaster have been spotted as well.
The handset should launch with Android Marshmallow on board, but there is no word on a possible Nougat update yet. Price for China is expected to be around $105 USD at current exchange rate. We will get back to it as soon as it becomes official, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
