Gearing up to take the limelight again, Xiaomi has teased its upcoming smartphone, Redmi Note 4. Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 4 on January 19 and will be available as Flipkart Exclusive only for now. This has been confirmed through a video tweet by Flipkart confirming the device as a Flipkart exclusive.
The video featured Ravindra Jadeja and compared the phone’s compatibility with Jadeja’s skills. Just like Ravindra Jadeja, Redmi Note 4 is also a competent all-rounder, claimed by Xiaomi. The Note 4 has been described as lightning fast, stunning looks, incredible stamina and a complete package. The key highlight of the upcoming phone is its metal build and deca-core SoC, though the company might introduce another variant in our market.
