Xiaomi teasing Redmi Note 4X smartphone ahead of reveal
The Redmi Note 4X could be set for a February 16th reveal. Previous rumors suggest that the affordable 5.5-inch smartphone will drop Huawei's in-house Helio X20 in favor of the mainstream Snapdragon 653 SoC.
The Redmi Note 4 launched in August of 2016 and signs are already pointing to a mid-generation refresh coming sooner rather than later. Aside from the TENAA documents last month, a recently released official teaser from Xiaomi suggests that the Chinese company will unveil the new smartphone during an announcement event next week on February 16th.
According to the aforementioned TENAA documents, we can expect the Redmi Note 4X to carry the following core specifications:
Official prices for the Redmi Note 4X remain unknown, but current Chinese retailers are suggesting starting prices as low as 135 Euros. In comparison, the Redmi Note 4 currently retails for around $230 USD and houses a Helio X20 SoC with 3 GB of RAM and a 13 MP camera. The leaked images below show no major design changes other than a relocation of the rear fingerprint reader to the front Home button.
