Xiaomi Redmi 4X coming this March for as low as 699 Yuan
Xiaomi closed off its press event at the China National Convention Center in Beijing this week with the reveal of the Redmi 4X smartphone. The budget device will come in colorful choices with the 2 GB RAM/16 GB eMMC SKU retailing for 699 Yuan (~95 Euros) and the slightly more capable 3 GB RAM/32 GB eMMC SKU retailing for 899 Yuan (~125 Euros). The in-house proprietary Pinecone S1 SoC will not be in use as the Redmi 4X will instead rely on the entry-level Snapdragon 435 SoC. The phone is expected to be slightly slower than the recently revealed Mi 5c.
Other core specifications include:
- 5-inch 720p display
- 2/3 GB RAM
- 16/32 GB eMMC
- 13 MP f/2.0 rear camera w/ PDAF + 5 MP f/2.2 front camera
- 802.11n 2.4 GHz, Bluetooth 4.2
- LTE bands 1/3/5/7/8/38/41 support
- 4100 mAh non-removable battery
- 8.65 mm thick
The manufacturer is claiming a standby time of up to 18 days when on a full charge. Note that the phone does not support LTE band 20, which is the common 4G band for many European networks. The Redmi 4X essentially boils down to an updated Redmi 4A.
