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:

  • 5.5-inch FHD display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 32/64 GB of internal storage
  • Non-removable 4000 mAh battery
  • 16 MP rear camera

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.

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.
