Xiaomi is, next to Huawei, at the very top of the food chain in China. These are the two largest smartphone manufacturers in China at the moment, and even though Xiaomi cannot match Huawei overseas, they sure can in China. Xiaomi has introduced quite a few smartphones this year, and the latest device they’ve announced is the Mi Max phablet. Xiaomi has received over 10 million registrations for the first flash sale of this device (thus far), it is quite popular in China, and it seems like the company will be able to sell quite a few units once the time comes.
As already mentioned, Xiaomi has introduced a number of devices already this year, and one of them is the mid-range Redmi Note 3 which was announced back in January. The Redmi Note 2 was announced back in August last year, which means that the Redmi Note 4 will probably arrive in the coming months. It was just a matter of time before Redmi Note 4 rumors start popping up, and the first one surfaced quite recently. According to the available info, the Redmi Note 4 will ship in two variants, one will be fueled by the Helio X20 64-bit deca-core processor, and the other one will ship with the Helio P10 64-bit octa-core SoC. The rumor also claims that the device will sport a 5.5-inch display, and that the 13-megapixel snapper will be placed on its back. Now, do keep in mind that the source is still uncertain whether we’re looking at a single or dual camera setup here.
The ‘Redmi Note’ devices are Xiaomi’s mid-range smartphones, and if the company truly intends on using the Helio X20 in one of the two Redmi Note 4 models, quite a few people might be interesting in it, especially if it remains as affordable as the Redmi Note 3. The Helio X20 is the most powerful processor MediaTek has to offer, well, the company also has the Helio X25 in their lineup, but that chip is more or less identical to the Helio X20, it only offers a higher clock speed. Either way, the Redmi Note 4 is expected to land in July or August this year, and chances are we’ll see quite a few rumors / leaks before Xiaomi launched the device, so stay tuned.
