Allen Ngo,

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
