Xiaomi might have launched a number of smartphones already in 2016, but the company has no intention of stopping now. The Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi Note 2 flagship handsets have been mentioned in various rumors lately, and so was the Redmi Note 4. The Redmi Note 4 is Xiaomi’s upcoming mid-ranger, and a direct successor to the Redmi Note 3 which was introduced back in January this year. Xiaomi tends to introduce two ‘Redmi Note’ devices per year, so this is nothing out of the ordinary actually.
That being said, we’ve seen a number of Redmi Note 4 rumors thus far, but have not actually seen a leaked image of the device yet, until now. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see the back side of the Redmi Note 4, and the actual device held by a Chinese actor, Haoran Liu. Now, it seems like the back side of the phone will resemble the design on the Redmi Note 3, but only at a first glance. There are two circular cutouts on both devices, but unlike the Redmi Note 3, the Redmi Note 4 will ship with two rear-facing cameras, which means that the lower cutout won’t be used for a fingerprint scanner. The dual-LED, dual tone flash will be placed in between the two camera sensors, and the company’s branding will be located on the bottom of the phone’s back. The Redmi Note 4 will be made out of metal, as you can see, and you can also expect this smartphone to be quite affordable, just like its predecessors.
Unfortunately, we still didn’t see a benchmark listing of this device, or anything of the sort, but the phone’s partial specs did surface though. According to rumors we’ve seen thus far, the Redmi Note 4 will once again sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, and it will probably ship with 3GB of RAM, though it is possible Xiaomi intends to launch the 4GB RAM variant of this smartphone as well. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 SoC is probably going to fuel this smartphone, though there’s a possibility Xiaomi might opt for the Helio P10 after all, we’ll see. We still don’t know which camera sensors did Xiaomi include on the back of this phone, but it is possible we’re looking at two 12-megapixel or 13-megapixel sensors, we’ll just have to wait and see. The phone is expected to launch in the coming weeks, stay tuned.
